Take Time for YourSelf . . .

Time Just for My Self?
I took a little today.
After attending to scheduled appointments I stopped for "a cuppa"
and claimed a corner to read a little bit. 

Except, i had a hard time keeping quiet
I decided to read:
James Thurber.
What a delight.
His sketches are included
but best of all
at least to me
is the HUMOR.
Yay!!! for some humor.
In case introductions are called for:
James Thurber
You don't have to spend any do-re-mi.
The public library will have his work.
There's LOTS to choose from.
go ahead - give your life a little giggle room.
I highly recommend it.
love & love,

Inky Update

I had  a writing coach always reminding me to Not Trash a first draft.
I think of that a lot lately.

This was 15 of 31 ink drawings . . Inktober still in progress . . . Many of my inking chums have already been overwhelmed and moved on . . .
 Some of my chums are professionals . . their work is  

I'm also taking a class in Urban Sketching.
That's why I posted #15.
I used a Bic pen (ink only) - and posted the sketch - 
Then went back - added a little color and my first homework assignment was acceptable.
Hey, for a rookie - this passes - and reminds me of the "No Trashing" rule.
Some of my chums are following prompts
not me
I just draw whatever comes to mind - or presents itself.
I'm trying out all different kinds of inking tools.
Right now i have a preference for Ballpoint and/or Fountain pen
which turned out to be nifty
I am studying with
he has the same preference.


well, I have plenty of stories to share, but right now I'm going to add some music
(no, not my own)
and participate in Tom's Foto Tunes
