The Pen is mightier than the sword! I love that “quick draw” approach to my pen and inks! Years ago my high-school life drawing teacher, taught me to look at my subject, see it, really see it, and then with a bold confident stroke of the line — Mark the page!! Each stroke is thoughtfully observed and laid onto the paper, but with quick rapid movements. The importance of drawing is building observational skills and marking the page confidently.
Squrill – This little guy visited me on a lunch break in a local garden.
chickadee – I love these little birds. So brave and cheerful in their song. This little fellow was a frequent feeder in my garden in Edmonton, AB.
Polar Bear – Hudson This little sketch of Hudson seen at the Toronto Zoo. I love all bears. Although, I was at the zoo, I was day dreaming what it would be like to see them in their natural habitat. It is a goal of mine to see them in the wild.
I captured this inspiration while eating lunch by the Saskatchewan River, Edmonton, AB
Inspiration for this little sketch came from my daughter when she was a toddler. She would chase the butterflies in our garden from one flower to the next.
Our dog, my model. Our dog is the best dog! He lives up to man’s best friend. Trust worthy, friendly, and a constant reminder that life is full of great treats!
I have always loved herons. The Great Blue Heron was the first Canadian bird I learned about in grade 1. I am still fascinated when I see them. They stand quietly, patiently and in solitude fishing.
I am fascinated with the colours found in a peacock. On a trip to India; I was told by my tour guide they are a symbol of love
