Cock-eyed Giraffe Pencil Drawing

Hello Friends!

I just wanted to share this giraffe I sketched without tracing the outline. You can probably see that.  Its eyes are so uneven!!  Apparently when I first posted this, I confused myself and said it was a camel in the text.  It has been quite a few weeks of craziness here!  Oh well, I  have not been drawing freely as much lately with all the recent events that happened in my life.  Here they are:

The good:  My daughter graduated from high school. 🙂

The bad:  Next week she leaves us for the summer on the same day our son will be leaving to go live and work in the wilderness for his job for 8 days.  Well, it will be “good” for HIM, but “bad” for ME; I will be saying good-bye to him this weekend, then to my daughter a few days later.  They are leaving on the same day.  This is going to be the first time I have ever been away from both of them at the same time for any length of time. 😦  I am sure George and I will have a good week, though.  😉

The ugly:  My brother committed suicide on May 4th.  I have written about that already here on my blog.  The post is here:   https://patsyscreativecorner.com/2017/05/23/suicide-dont-make-that-choice/

However, yesterdat, I did 5 of my picture book paintings for Larry, the Lonely Leatherback Sea Turtle!  I want to get the paintings finished so I can scan them into my laptop and digitally put the words to the story in.  I have started this process with a different picture book I have done a few watercolor paintings for called Mr. C. Turtle Makes New Friends.  I haven’t shared any of that story here yet.

As usual, I am feeling like I am all over the place emotionally and mentally.  This is going to be a busy week.  I am meeting a new friend for lunch on Thursday so that will be fun.  Then this Sunday I might get to see some real turtles and tortoises!! I have seen some turtles before I even owned a red-eared slider years ago)  but never a tortoise in real life!  This excites me!!  I hope I will be allowed to take pictures so I can share them here.

So now it is onto exercising and getting ready for the meeting tonight!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  2. Is he a giraffe or a camel? He looks like a giraffe which is what the title says, but you called him a camel in the text. Either way, I like him with the uneven eyes. It gives him a cute personality and a jaunty look. Of course, I look at Cupcake all day and she is off kilter in a LOT of ways so I’m familiar with this issue. It’s great that you’re able to get work done, considering the good, the bad, and the ugly. Hang in there.
