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!  🙂

Elephant Love – Baby and Mama

Hello Friends,

It has been a long week, and I am still not done with this drawing.  I want to add some background and darken some more areas, but I worked on this a couple of more days this week.

I still have a cough, but I think I am over the flu now.  Our daughter usually has the car all week for work, and today is a sunny day.  So since she is home today, I am going out to enjoy some sunshine!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Stay well.

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

Baby Elephant Drawing

Hello Friends,

Happy New Year!  Wow, it has been quite a while since I’ve drawn or written anything!  December was relaxing, but my husband took two weeks off, and I just didn’t get around to doing much.  Our daughter was gone working on her CCC crew for two weeks and during Christmas down at the Ventura fires.  They were a camp maintenance crew so she wasn’t anywhere near the fire.  She said she really loved the experience, though!  We are very proud of her.

The day after New Year’s, my husband came down with the flu.  He is still coughing.  Then I came down with it this past Friday!  I am doing better now, but still have a cough.

I hope to get back to working out a lot more than I have been, drawing, painting, and writing.  It is just feeling like a slow start to everything right now.

In the meantime, I will be finishing this baby elephant who has a mama I will be drawing also.  I want to continue drawing the baby and mama animals in the lovely book my daughter gave me this summer.

Well, until next time, I sure hope everyone had a great holiday season and are starting off with a great new year.

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

 

Baby Elephant Colored Pencil Drawing

Here’s the baby elephant I drew for my daughter for her 15th birthday. It has been a crazy week, so this is the first chance I’ve had to get it on my blog! It was a lot of fun to do. It is an 8×8 square. 🙂 I would kind of like to try doing it in watercolor pencils as well.
