EDin May 31 2010 Collection

Yes, you saw the little one a few challenges ago, I added his companions for this Every Day in May " Collection" challenge. The brown jug got a bit out of control as it sits in the middle of my journal spread's gutter. A fitting challenge for this completed 'Collection' of the 2010 Every Day in May Challenge.
Thank you Liz Steele for suggesting this version and organizing us. It has been Fun and I do believe I have become a stronger artist through the Forced daily effort. Now what??

EDin May #24 2010 Fruit

Fruit is always fun to sketch - I do not eat enough of it - but it is always in the house in some form.
Today marks the beginning of the last week for the 2010 Every Day in May challenge! So far I'm on track but this last weekend will be a real challenge.

EDin May #21 2010 Antique

I have quite a few large old crocks, I love the old glazes and imperfections - each is totally unique. Not sure if this is truly antique (100+ years old) but it was before the rubber gasket jars used for preserving, it has an iron clamp gizmo that does close it securely.

EDin May #19 2010

I used to be a quilting fool . Then I went blind.

EDin May #18 2010

Our back yard has evolved over the years with lots of dreams and hard work . As I paid my house bills, I noticed the lush green behind the pool area and instantly decided this would be the "view out my window" submission. Almost made paying bills enjoyable (almost).

Over the years, there used to be a piano, flute, guitar and drum set in the house but alas now this is the only "instrument" left to draw.

EDM 272 Favorite Song

Illustrate my favorite song (one of them anyway) I AM A ROCK Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel A winter's day - In a deep and dark December; I am alone, Gazing from my window to the streets below On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow. I am a rock, I am an island. I've built walls, A fortress deep and mighty, That none may penetrate. I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain. It's laughter and it's loving I disdain. I am a rock, I am an island. Don't talk of love, But I've heard the words before; It's sleeping in my memory. I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died. If I never loved I never would have cried. I am a rock, I am an island. I have my books And my poetry to protect me; I am shielded in my armor, Hiding in my room, safe within my womb. I touch no one and no one touches me. I am a rock, I am an island. And a rock feels no pain; And an island never cries.

EDin May #12 2010

Not a lot of planning on this spread, first the pan of enchiladas then I just sort of ran amuck - I do that a lot . I find I do not like the reds in my box either - but Hey, dinner was great! 12 down 19 to go!
