bird watching and staying home for the summer

Usually summer means several bicycle-camping trips, but with COVID19 still around, we are staying home. In the meantime, I have been pretty productive with my 100 Self Portraits project. Watching the birds that come to the bird feeders has been my daily dose of joy.

spoons, shadows and sketches

Do you have a preferred spoon or fork that you eat with?   I tend to like the heavier and thicker variety.  I hold pencils, forks and the like between my middle finger and my ring finger, so the thicker variety tend to be more comfortable. The one in the photo below is good for drawing although not one I'd use. Shadows my latest spoon model for my "encyclopeadia of collections" theme for the sketchbook project 2012 and my favorite mechanical pencil. Drawing The kitchen drawer is filled with two sets of flatware.   One set is my Mother's wedding set and the other is my Sister's wedding set.  Mixed in with those are singles.  These singles are old and abused and came to us in one way or another.  They have their safe haven in this drawer. Inspired by the various designs on these mismatched singles, I drew a spoon and fork and added the background color with software. For more sunday shadows, visit Tracy's blog .
