Last week I fell very short of my goals for sketching flowers. The trip to San Diego was worth it, but I will have some making up to do! I managed only two sketches — I look forward to doing many more flowers this summer. I simply adore sunflowers.
And my hellebore in the back yard are blooming like crazy! Don’t you love the purple variety?
So, that’s the short story of lesson #4 on flowers.
This week’s sketches have been all about shoes. And what a kick (you should pardon the expression!) it has been. My first try was with my brown boot.
Then I pulled out this sassy little thing . . .
I delved into David’s closet. Though his tan suede shoe looked interesting it lacked appeal until I pulled out the blue paint. There now, just don’t step on ‘em.
And then some silver slippers . . . FUN!
But enough of these big shoes. I trotted next door to borrow from my 4-year-old neighbor, Porter. She generously shared a couple of shoes. But, alas! some sad news: This simply adorable polka dot shoe has lost its partner! Porter can’t bare to part with it and I completely understand. So consider this an urgent APB: If anyone sees the partner to this little dazzler, please grab it and get in touch with me. (No questions asked, of course!)
Last, but certainly not least, is this snappy boot. It’s just a little too big yet, but soon Porter will be stylin’ while seeking new adventures!
Now you’re caught up. Lesson #6 — and the last lesson for this series with Jane — is machine-made objects. Oh, this is going to be tough. Wish me luck.
