Wren House

So many of the challenges on different blogs were too fun to not do... but I didn't have time to do them when they were posted.  So I've saved them away and am working on them as I can.

Since I've been working on my drawing, I combined two challenges; "Bird" from Three Muses and "Sketch" from Opus Gluei. 

I did this little sketch on a recent trip to visit various members of my husband's family.  As they all talked family history... I pulled out some paper and did some sketching.  I decided to draw a little wren as we have one at home who entertains us with her cheekiness.  (She loves to zip into our garage when the door is open... or the HOUSE if she gets a chance!)

Tomatoes and Pears in Sunlight

I've discovered I really enjoy creating and photographing still life compositions.  This one is in my kitchen.  The strong morning sunlight coming in thru the window made strong shadows that I found interesting.  The dark bowl from Tanzania really shows off the tomatoes.  The basket I used as a backdrop holds my teas.
