The Letter B for Birdcage

The Letter B

I had thought of a birdcage when I did my first letter B, but then I got enamored with bamboo of all things. But I finally got around to creating it. Then all things went silly as you can see. I guess the added cat beasties can have a bird questions its existence.

Hello Summer!

Hello Summer!

I have been sketching while watching my grandson in the screened in solarium. From there we get to see the flowers in my garden and to hear the birds serenade us from the trees. 
This illustration is to celebrate the first day of summer.

The Letter A is for Arbor

The Letter A

I have been thinking of adding vowels for my letter series. With summer around the bend, the trees are lush and green, and flowers are in bloom everywhere. Garden centers are a buzz with not just flowers but garden decor. So being in a summer mood, a garden ARBOR came as an inspiration for the letter A.

The Letter E for Elephant

E is for Elephant

I decided to do another letter E for my Alphabet Soup Illustrated Letters series. 
The first E that I did for the series was using evergreens, so as I was sketching this evening I thought an elephant would be fun. Besides I so so love elephants!

So now I am thinking of illustrating some multiple variations for the series to give more variety, especially if one wants to spell out a word and needs a double letter. 
Sigh! This will keep me busy to be sure!

Rise and Shine!

Good Morning Rooster
I have never been a morning person. 
Getting up early to start the day like a shot out of a cannon is not me. 

But as Father's Day approaches, and I think of my Dad, I remember that he was a morning person.
Up early with the radio blaring, my Dad would yell "Rise and shine!".
Funny the things you miss.

Home Is Where the Heart Is

There is no place like HOME

I have found in all my travels, that even though I love to go visit and sight see, that there is no place like home.
