Elephant Mama & Baby Pencil Drawing

Hello Friends,

I have finally finished my elephants drawing.  So here they are.  Ellie is the Mama and Sammy is the baby.  (The little brown smudge at the bottom is from our dog, Brownie, jumping up on the couch where my sketch pad was sitting.  She had some dirt on her paw!)

We are on the upswing of this flu bug.  I still have a little cough, but I am feeling a whole lot better!  This week I am planning on finishing my assignment for my writing class.  I have the first part done, and a rough draft that I still have to type up for the second part.  I wrote that while I was at Barnes & Noble on Saturday which was the first day I I had been out in a week!

First I went for a walk by the river after walking over our beautiful Sundial bridge.  It seemed like everyone in town was there, and almost everyone had at least one dog!  I got to pet a beautiful Australian Shepherd.  I talked with a guy who was trying to get his 4 month Lab puppy used to people.  She didn’t seem to have a problem at all.  She was cute.  I also saw some GIANT white dog but have no idea what kind it was.  All I could think was that I would never want to have to brush it!  Ha, ha.  😉

So after I went for a walk I went to the library, the art store for a new sketch pad, then to Barnes & Noble to write, then a couple of other errands and home.  But just being outside in the sunshine among a lot of people did me a world of good.  The weather was perfect that day.  There were a lot of boats on the river, too.  I even saw one guy in a boat catch a huge fish!

I hope everyone is staying well.  I think after last week’s days of sunshine and temperatures in the 70’s we are going to be getting some rain this week.

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

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: Thanks for visiting! :)

  2. Love the finished drawing and it seems Brownie has added his own signature to the piece. A day out is what I need as well. The urgent care was so full of people with flu on Sunday that my daughter and I dawned masks before walking inside. We were there for 2 hours as my back was out completely and I needed a wheelchair to get inside. I’m so glad it wasn’t the flu but I’ve been down for 3 days now and want so much to get out among them…as long as no one out there has the flu. 🙂 Glad you are better and have new perspective.

  5. Love the drawing, Patsy! The dog’s print probably added something special to it. And I must admit I’m envious of your sunshine.

    • Thank you Anneli. Yes, I was very fortunate that she didn’t land full in the middle of it, though! One of these days I will have to stop leaving it where she tends to jump after coming in! Ha, ha! 😉 I hope you get some sunshine soon!

  7. This is just gorgeous. Elephants are some of my favourite animals because they are so expressive and you have captured their nature in a lovely way

    • Wow, thank you so much! They have always been one of my daughter’s favorite animals, too. She has a small elephant puppet she won as a prize when she was three. She named her Ellie, and we used to make Ellie talk to her all the time which was great fun. 🙂
