Daily Drawing #167, Cool Nights, Warm Summer Breezes

Warm is the prompt word of the day and my daily offering is simply entitled, “A Summers Eve Camping Trip.” I have only been camping several times in my life and I can say for sure it is not one of my favorite things, even for a guy from West Virginia. While I may not like camping I do like summer and cool summer breezes. So if you like camping as part of your summertime festivities then go out and camp. God gives us the gift summer for three months so enjoy it wisely and safely.

View in the Window, Doodle #82

Today’s prompt was the word transparency. I settled on the offered doodle “View in the Window,” because a commercial reminded me of one of my former cat’s favorite pastimes, looking out of the window. I often wondered what fascinating sights out the window kept the cat there for hours at a time.

I am also reminded of the number of times I have looked out through the same window at my neighbors going about there daily business wondering about their lives. In the old days when I was a child up to my young adult years neighbors hung around with each other, talking over the concerns of life or just sharing a little laughter. It seems times have changed.

I have talked to many people like me who do not share much time with their neighbors or don’t even know the least little bit about them. Perhaps it is time to step out from behind our windows and get out there and talk to the neighbors.

Daily Timeout for Art #51


I like my vegetables as much as the next guy or girl but I don’t know if I care to create a drawing with them as the central theme. Today’s offering of a little boy fishing is lovingly called “Darn I Caught Carrots.

Daily Timeout for Art #50


In today’s daily challenge the goal was to create a piece of art with the theme centered around bugs. I decided to try my hand at my version of Chinese brush painting. I cheated however and used watercolor pencils. Today’s offering is entitled “Dragonfly.” I can’t believe this is my 50th drawing.
