Pen and Paper, A drawing a day....

day 1, Newspapers on the table
I have been following artist Brenda Swenson's watercolor blog for a while now,  I love her watercolors, and drawings, and travel journal sketches...  and recently she posted a drawing challenge, to make a pen drawing every day for 75 days.  I decided I'd like to join in, because I've always loved drawing with pens, but just don't do it enough anymore.  It'll be fun to see what kinds of things I will find to draw in the next 75 days...  I may not post every drawing, but, for sure, I will be drawing.  In 75 days it will be September! How fast the summer goes by... and I will be happy to have a sketch book full of memories at the end.  :)

day 2, Back yard chair and rosebush

So Many Flowers...

 It seems as if all the flowers bloom at once, and no time to spend on them.  I did a quick sketch of a couple roses before I went to work today.  It would be so pretty as a painting, I hope I get some time this weekend... but then, the flowers will have faded. 
Red, black and white pencil on toned paper.
