My husband and I volunteer every year for the series .
So, I'll be MIA for a week or so...
if you like baseball, people and well...baseball - come on out!
Check out this page for the teams,
this page for the schedule
and this page for some factoids about the way that we host all the players and umpires.
Here is some great info on the media coverage for the series (including ESPN for the last two days!).
I hope that all of you are creating some art every day.

The walnut shell - well, half of one- doesn't it look like an owl face?!
And some rusty treasures.
All waiting for their spot in an owl collage.
So, what's on your table?
Stay creative my friends.

although I am toying with the idea
of painting in some foliage for him...
right down there in the lower right hand corner - just covering the edge of the rock
and his sharp, dagger-like claw.
I'll have to think about that for a bit.

If you look closely, you will see clues from the places I sketch at...
A small section of a bone in the top left-ish corner...
a hip socket down there in the lower right hand corner...
guess where I was then?
The large leaves are from a bookmark that my husband was using.
Here on the bottom of the page, you will find a spider plant from another doctors waiting room.
So...you can see that it is possible to find inspiration (and images) everywhere!
If you will just take the time to look around you,
notice the different shapes and forms that surround you,
you may be surprised at how you can find inspiration anywhere!
Stay curious my friends!

and other health issues (dear me) -
you spend a lot of time in doctor waiting rooms...
waiting of course!
I NEVER leave home without my handy dandy sketchbook
and Pitt Artist Pens.
You shouldn't either.
This is a page that I worked on while they were
REMOVING HUBBY'S CAST!!!
He got his cast off after 5 weeks of being restrained in one...
Mind you, he is still restrained (are you reading this dear husband?!)
but the cast is gone, gone, gone!
He is still on crutches, with orders to limit his weight bearing to about 20-30%.
But he is healing - which is great!
Thanks for all of the emails and well wishes.
I (well we) really appreciate that.
I'll try to post another finished sketchbook page tomorrow.
Maybe a new piece of artwork as well!
Yep, I completed yet another mixed media collage piece today!
I mounted the piece in another shadow box, with a black background this time.
It really looks so nice with the different background.
Hope that you all are keeping cool in this heat wave in the east.
I'm doing my outside work early in the am
and then late in the pm...
like every other southern resident!
Stay creative, my friends.

along with two Pitt Artist Pens (S & XS).
I'm slowly filling the book up with my "Doodle Drawings".
Very simple yet intensely detailed little drawings.
Can be done anywhere -
with any inspiration.
These drawings were done while
looking through my well loved copy of Graham Leslie McCallum's
"4000 Animals, Bird & Fish Motifs (A Sourcebook)".
Love, love, love his sourcebooks!
Check them out!
Oh, and draw -
