Art Every Day?

It sure is hard to draw something every day. I started off pretty good but now the weather is getting nicer (except for this rainy week so far) and I want to get out there and play photographer. But here are some more entries for the Every Day in May challenge. I'm playing catchup


Some salt and pepper shakers that I picked up in Germany


My favorite crafting scissors

I love how these lemons turned out though the slice is a little off. Drawn from my head with no reference.

I love my Rav.

My wonky lightbulb. I like working in ink though.

My Whatever Clock in the office where I work. It's been a real conversation piece over the years.

Flames are hard to draw I have found.

Drawn with watercolor pencils. Another drawing from my head.

Love my strawberries. This drawing didn't turn out that bad either.

Draw Some Exercise Equipment

Originally uploaded by roflute

I'm not much of an exerciser but I have to get better. One of the easiest things to do to be more active is walking. It can be done anywhere, anytime. I'm usually walking with a camera in my hand so that gets me out and about. Here are my new New Balance walking shoes. I have found this brand to fit my double width foot best. Very comfortable for my tootsies. I'll have to start breaking these shoes in since I have a walking 5K later this month. That's one way to get my butt off the sofa!

Draw a Power Plug

Ah, this one was a bit more difficult than a bar of soap. I know it is a bit wonky looking and the perspective is off. Hopefully I will get better with practice. My friend had her baby today. I am so happy for her. She had a boy like I knew she would. Always nice when something good happens in the world.

Draw a Bar of Soap

Originally uploaded by roflute

So I haven't been very creative lately, but I have been busy. I've missed my drawing and haven't done any of the Everyday Matters challenges in quite a while since I finished my first Moleskine sketchbook. What a better way to start a new moley with a new challenge. Every Day in May. Let's see if I can draw something each day for this month. Today it is a bar of soap. It is done in colored pencils and I had a nice perfumey smell while I drew it. Normally, this soap is in my sock drawer. Happy May everyone! It was a beautiful sunshiny day here today. Spring has finally come!
