The theme for Illustration Friday this week is "rambunctious."  I think I need to get a little rambunctious about locating my USB cable so that I can download my pictures from my art journal for you.  sorry about that.  
Back to "rambunctious" which is difficult to type/spell.  I'm tossing around these ideas (any thoughts?):
a pastel of my golden retriever
a charcoal of my youngest son
ink of my bichon
ink or charcoal of frisky horses
a ram named Bunctious.

I'm way too lazy to go get my journal to show you what I did today, but I'll take a picture of it tomorrow.  I haven't drawn in my journal every day because I found that there are days that I just don't feel it.  On those days, I don't like my journal page and I'm contemplating cutting those pages out.  
Today, though, I really felt blank when I opened my art journal and then I drew something I really liked.  So, sometimes it works out even on a day when I don't feel inspired.

I've never done a watercolor portrait, so I thought I'd try it.  Here is "Big Ol' Hat."

straight talk

Here it is.  I'm just too lazy to take pics and blog lately.  I've still been scribbling away, but posting has been neglected.  But guess what????  Sara and her new hubby are both keeping an art journal now, and Sara neeeeeeds to let me post the awesome oil paintings she has completed and the really great pencil sketch of her perfectly cute nephew!

I've completed some journal pages not really worth catching up on...just some playing around with oil pastels and color.  But here are some highlights to bring you up to speed....Out of the two balloon drawings, which do you like better?  The Illustration Friday theme this week is "balloon."
