The Cheshire Raccoon

I was walking in Quail Hollow the other day, when a rather large raccoon lumbered across the path in front of me.  I saw him climb a tree, and then perch up where the trunk split. He sat for a long time, keeping a sharp eye on me. I fumbled for my camera, only to find its battery was dead! (If only I had taken a few less photos of woodland flowers that day!)  He looked so like Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat--like a disembodied face up in a tree!

Every Day in May 2016 #3: A Hammer - Piano hammers

Every Day in May Facebook Group #3: A Hammer, in this case piano hammers.

Every Day in May 2016 #2: Something Folded - A Paper Fan

Every Day in May Facebook Group Sketch: Something Folded - A Paper Fan.  When I was little, my grandmother used to fold our church bulletin into a fan, and we would fan each other during the Sunday service in the summer. A game of tic tac toe also helped to keep me still.

Every Day in May 2016 #1: A Toy - Catnip Bubbles

Every Day in May is a Facebook Group of over 1,000 artists who share a sketch of the same subject each day in May.  Day 1's assignment was to draw a toy.  I'm not sure who has more fun with this toy: Bojangles the Cat or my daughters.

Sparrows in our room

Two sparrows flew into our hotel room while I was writing a card to my mother. They didn't stay long enough for a photo, so here's a quick sketch instead.

Sailor the Yacht Club Cat

Sailor says "Hey!" to Sonny, Cher, Bojangles, Lili, Lulu, and even Bosco the Dog!  Any other cool cats or dogs out there that want a hello from Sailor the Yacht Club Cat?

Lamppost in Winter

Just had a wistful moment for Winter (believe it or not) - but I do love winter nights with a silent, light snowfall and maybe waking up to a snowday for the kids.  I had a message from my students at Frazer Elementary, and they were so excited about having a snow day!  I miss the 10-yr-old "Eagle Eyes" students with whom I work as a volunteer. They are such nice little people.
