Granddogs Visiting This Weekend

My daughter has come to visit this weekend and brought our two beautiful granddogs.  We have a new puppy, a yellow lab, that we rescued at Christmas from the local shelter.  My daughter has a miniature chihuahua.  They are the same age.  This is the second time they have seen each other and as you see in the first pic they have a healthy respect and are a little wary of each other.

It doesn't take long for them to get into full body contact.  Over the weekend they have played, beat each other up and now, as you can see in the last picture the Little Eddie has ended up the victor by having possession of my lab's favourite toy.

Blade showed us how to capture a spider web on an acrylic sheet.  I am really not ready for the "advanced" techniques but I loved being in the class. While he was doing this I was doodling.  Here are my two doodles from this class:

And this is the second one:

This week I promise I am going to practice really hard so I won't have to keep putting you through my pain.  Thanks for sticking with me.

If you haven't already fallen over from the newbie draw-er continue with me on my journey.

This is Day 3 drawing:

This drawing was quickly followed by this one:

Stay tuned for Class #2 on June 19th.


OH HAPPY DAY: .......... My blog just opened with no password or any crazy effort on my part. Guess that means I am going to have to post something. Well the only thing I have been taking pictures of are my efforts at drawing faces. I take pics because I can see what is wrong easier ..... lol okay it is not hard to see what is wrong as I just started last week. But if I take a picture I can see I need to put the eyes further apart or the face shorter etc. So if you want to laugh here is my very first drawing on Jun2 12th, 2012.

After Blade showed this on his show I thought I had better start trying to improve every day. So this is day 2:

I am sorry I haven't been on this blog for awhile. I just found my password while I was cleaning off the piles on my desk.av What would you like to hear? The good or the bad? Let's stay positive for this one. I have been downloading music recently. I think this is a passion that has fallen by the wayside of ustream, stickam and utube (and the DVR). Not enough hours in the day sometimes. But music has a way of soothing wounds and keeping unobstrusive company I have been arting. Still bad about taking pics or recording the masterpieces in any way. So take my word for it - they are gorgeous darlin'. Just a bit of negative: how do you deal with people who think they know too much and don't mind sharing their tidbits of nonsense to anyone who will listen. Just getting rid of negativity. I seem to have run across of few of these self-centered humans lately.
