Too hot to draw


After a brief episode of rain and cooler weather, the heat is back. When I am holding the pencils in my hand I get the impression the wax should just be melting and dripping onto the paper.

Progress is slow. Energy is non-existent. Maybe I should attempt a picture of ocean waves or better even... icebergs!

Boot Detail



This is for my sister. The flash left a spot, but I hope she approves anyway :)

Life as it is

I have not come very far with this drawing. It's been busy around here. My full time job and then plumbing problems at the house, then 100 plus degree weather and no rain when all life seems to move in slow motion. Today it finally rains and the temperatures are in the 90's. Ahhhh... you can almost hear the earth sigh with relief!

The picture was taken without a flash, so it has a "warm" glow. But the background is very white. I am still bothered by the lack of a background idea.
