Something High, Something Low

Today, I saw two interesting things in my backyard. A blimp (something high) and a snake (something low).

This blimp was first seen by my wife, Cathie. She called in to me to come out and see it. The kids were already outside getting ready to play in their kiddie pool. We were all excited about this cool event.

I actually saw this guy earlier while getting the kiddie pool filled. He was in our garden hanging out in the sun on the warm dirt. I felt lucky that he allowed me to get so close to take his picture. I was only able to get four shots before he had enough and took off into our neighbors yard. He sure was beautiful.

This is a very large mural at our local library. It is located in the Children's Reading Room.

This room is great because it also has puppets for the kids (and adults) to use and a little stage to perform stories with the puppets.

Illustration Friday -- Citrus

When I saw this week's topic was Citrus, I had a pretty good idea what I was going to draw. I did my second favorite drink of the summer, lemonade. (Iced tea being my first:) )

Here is the sketch of a cut lemon with a glass of lemonade.

I thought it needed more color to it because it looked like fruit next to a glass. So, I added color. Here is the color version.

Vote for Me

Today I submitted two pictures to JPG Magazine for their upcoming issue. You can vote for them to be included in that issue.

I've been wanting to submit something ever since I found out about their magazine a few months ago. I think they fit the themes. Hope you agree and vote!

Sock It to Me

No, No, I'm not quoting Full Metal Jacket or a 2 Live Crew song. I'm talking about homemade socks.

Not sure if anyone remembers the great socks that I got from my Mother-in law. They are ones that she knit for me. My recent round of new socks from her can be seen over at my Flickr Account

Well, she has made the blogging plunge. You can see what she has to say over at her site.

Hope you visit!
