Upon arrival no one was in the waiting room - I thought my sketchbook would remain idle as nothing was sketchworthy. Shortly the patients arrived, and I had a few models with which to work. I felt brave sketching but no one even noticed.

Flora and Fauna

Early mornings the puppies are out and the new morning unfolds. This montage emerged. Of course the pups got into everything while I tried to sketch (color added later)

I have long admired the Hydrangea family of shrubs, from the giant puffy snowballs to the delicate pink or blue lacecaps. Happily mine is blooming this year, even flourishing - no idea why but I thoroughly enjoyed this closeup study.

SaltMarsh Moon

OK it's not the Full Salt Marsh Moon, but it was for me. It was about 9;30 last Thursday night, I was on my way home from babysitting Colin, Cali and Ella - I had not noticed the moon until I passed over the salt marsh river - there it was, bright orange and casting lovely color across the grasses. Amazing it was still so light too. Had to paint from memory but it was worth remembering.

Creepy Crawlies

Inspired by Apple-Pine's beetle post, I ventured out to see what was currently crawling about in my New England yard. This only scratches the surface! Sorry this scan is a bit blurry and I mistakenly marked the Green June bug as Brown - late night texting error.

The pups love playing, digging and chewing under our huge Rhododendrons. In full bloom right now.
