Drawing Lab -At the Zoo (kind-of)

So I waited until we finally had a chance to go to the zoo in Madison to continue with the labs in this great book.....but I forgot my sketch stuff when we went to Madison the other weekend! Duh! It was a fabulous day at the zoo too...I even left my camera at home!

So I tore out a few photos from magazines and sketched from those....

First Day of School

I hate September 1st! I love having the kids home all summer and First Day of School is a sad day for me. But hopefully they are having a good time with their new teachers, new classes etc..
How do I spend First Day? I had breakfast with a friend whose son started kindergarten...boy do I remember that day! Hard to say good-bye and see them go, but at the same time it is terrific for the child.
I also got to shave my cat, yes I had to shave my cat! My kitty, Oscar is sick and cannot walk right now. He may get over this or not, but in the mean time I want him to be comfortable. Since he cannot do his business in the litter box, I shaved his fur and put a diaper on him. He was actually fairly cooperative. Now he is resting on the back of the couch, looking out the window. Poor guy is just over a year old and has a heart problem that causes blood clots. A clot is why he cannot walk. We're hoping the meds will break up the clot and give him more time.
Now I'm off to make and can spaghetti sauce....yummy!
