Out and about on Sunday with my moleskine

First stop on Sunday was at church where it was pet blessing day. This is Bogart. More on this tomorrow.
Then it was back to Portland Center Stage to see Storm Large in Crazy Enough for the second time. I would tell you again to go see it, don't miss it!, but I think it may be sold out again. But try to see it. It is an amazing play.

Above is a man in the lobby of PCS where I was waiting to see Crazy Enough . Below are more drawings of people in the lobby. The feet below were part of the audience. This whole row was women in sandals with painted red toenails. I wish I had had the guts to pull out my camera and get a picture.

Below is the part of the stage. I would love to have been able to sketch the musicians and Storm but haven't figured out a way to sketch during a play.

Miss Muffy Bear in her rain gear

I probably shouldn't admit it but I have quite a few Muffy Vander Bears. This is two views of the one called Rainy Day Muffy. I did the quick sketch at the bottom to show the bright colors though her coat is not quite that orange.

Chloe at rest

I bought this little cat house years ago. It is much cuter than the drawing. Chloe has been with me for eight years and she just started using it.

Out and about with my moley

Audience members at a local production of a Little Night Music. I tried to draw the orchestra but that didn't work. I thought about trying to sketch the actors because the costumes were fabulous. But it was way too dark in the theater...of course....

Fairy Magic Mail

This fairy actually had horns, I guess, her own choice?

I'm running out of steam so I'm sharing a dream

So last Wednesday I dreamed that I was skating at a skating rink. I liked it so much that I skated where ever I was going for the rest of the dream. Then at work, someone called in to sign up for a class to learn to skate in a roller derby. As Mr. C. Jung would say:"How synchronistic is that?" Not that I would have the guts to take a class like that! I haven't skated in probably over forty years!

The Fairy Queen

Cynthia was the Fairy Queen and in charge of the amazing fairy fest every year in Portland, Oregon. She has now retired from her duty and this is a great loss for the fairies of our fair city.

The Perfect Cartoon

This cartoon is from the New Yorker
This is exactly how I feel about Facebook. Now the cartoon would be really perfect if it said, "Just sitting here waiting for Facebook and Twitter to go away."

Watercolor Pencil Class dropout

I dropped out of Cathy's watercolor pencil class due to being overwhelmed. Then I got sick and I know I would never have been able to keep up. I did try one more piece of fruit. The one on the left is on a piece of paper taken from a watercolor moleskine.

The ugliest tissue box ever

I think this is the ugliest tissue box I have bought, but when you buy on sale there aren't many choices. I just wanted to stay in bed, but no excuses.

Another tribute to the comics

This is another tribute to the comics. Some of the images are from the Sunday paper. Others are from the daily paper and I made up the color. Enjoy.

May Inchie Overview.....Ten months down...two to go

Here is my inchie overview for May. I have now finished ten months of drawing every day and posting a drawing every day. Two more months to go.

So I went to hear the sermon at this church on Sunday because the email about it said that Kathleen was going to talk about a fairy forest she found while in Ireland. Well, it wasn't what I expected at all. So much for truth in advertising! It was an enjoyable sermon but I didn't hear a thing about fairies! I don't even think she believes in fairies, which is surprising since she is a celtic teacher.

The audience. I realize I am drawing too many audiences. Time to move on.
