May sketches, Continued and Discontinued

May 23, 2011

update :  this post is from earlier in the week but I hadn’t been able to publish until now.

I did try to keep up with the Every Day in May Sketching Challenge, but then internet went down for a week and I got really busy, and now I`m off to California until early June, so I’ll post the second group of 5, and maybe find the time to finish the rest while I’m traveling (although I have to admit that “draw some hair”leaves me totally uninspired and I kind of blocked on that one).  In any case, it will be fun to get back to some travel sketching, and I’m planning to meet up with my old sketching buddies, Jana, Marta and Desiree. Here then, are the  as yet unposted ones, and this blog is officially closed until June 4, at which point I hope to get back to some kind of regular blogging and blog visiting.

107 draw how you get your news – my neighbor, Mr Racine tells me all the gossip

&à! draw a lightbulb

109 draw a clock you have around your house – a view from the back yard

110 draw something with a flame or flames

111 draw a bowl – it’s wonky, but it wasn`t fun so I`m not doing it over

112 draw something fresh

113 draw a fence (my back porch is in the way, but the fence is there)

Draw something ugly you keep for sentimental reasons

the only trophy my daughter ever one for sports – in France they don`t give them out easily.  this was basically just for being on the swim all summer one year in New Jersey  and showing up for practice.  Not really her thing, but she soldiered through.

115 draw a shopping cart or basket – or bag?

116 draw something green

and that’s all she wrote until June.

    I know what you mean, Casey about some of the topics being uninspiring. You’ve done a great job and my favourite is the green pepper. Have a wonderful holiday and say hi for me.

    Great to see a post! Listen, I know of some bloggers who have been inspired by the every day in may challenge but have not opted to follow the list. Rather, they’ve been sketching whatever they feel like. But the month is almost over and you’re off. Enjoy leisurely sketching en route alone and with your buddies as well.

    For uninspiring, these are awfully inspired drawings! I especially like ‘ole Mr. Racine!

    A treat to get to see these in person. I like Mr Racine also. We all enjoyed having you and Michel and hope you come again soon! Thank you for coming and spending time with us!
