Clover Bits

While we’re on the topic of sitting in the garden for five minutes…sometimes the dog comes with me. Who am I kidding, Clover always comes with me. Sleeping, she’s a very fine model, but awake…not so much.

I was particularly pleased with the elbow and the shoulder (see arrows), but overall the session was a bust.—except for the fact that we got a little fresh air and sunshine, that is.

Saturday’s Sketches on Thursday

It’s been a busy week at work, so it’s taken me a good portion of the week to get around to posting these. We’re all on the cusp of enjoying a long weekend, and I’m still reveling in the last one a bit.

Saturday was one of those ideal days when you just float from one relaxing bit of the day to the next, and only the idea popping into your head tells you what comes next.

Obviously, I spent some time in the garden, and I was not alone  🙂

All About Clover…and Gimli

A post for those who have been asking about the critters…

Sitting with my Moleskine open on my lap, I was trying to figure out what to draw, and Clover dumped Santa in my lap. I believe she had other intentions than that I pick up a pencil and start sketching her toy. She allowed me to get the basic shape of its head, arms, and body and then she was having no more of my foolishness. She stole it back again in a puppy huff. She tried to take my pencil too, but I was having none of that. 
This would be an infinitely better photo of Clover if my shadow wasn’t looming over her.
Sleepy in the sunshine after a round of fetch.
Meanwhile…Gimli was in his favorite spot by the pond, eyeing every bird in the vicinity.
