There was some very distracting wires and the like in this picture, so I used some creative license to edit it.
I love the sun and shade in this one.
I just love the eagle, don't you?
We had a change of plans since my daughter had to drive about 20 minutes to pick me up (I still don't have my car). We went to Potter Park Zoo in Lansing instead of driving to Battle Creek.
She stopped in Leslie on the way so that I could mail out my package to a friend and then went on our merry way. I had no idea that I had dropped my cell phone outside of the post office. Actually when I got home, I quick called my daughter because I thought I had probably left it in her car, but while waiting for her to answer, I found it on the cupboard. I still had no idea I had dropped it.
I was on the computer looking at the few pictures I was able to take before the battery in the camera died when my tutee called to ask me where I had lost my phone. I told her that I hadn't lost it, that somehow I'd left it at home while I was at the zoo. She proceeded to tell me that someone had called her because she was the first contact on the phone to try to find out how to get the phone back to me. The woman who found it got hold of the hubster and he drove over to her house - a mere 3 miles away - and brought it back home. What a lovely woman!
It was a wonderful day. The 2 year old pushed the umbrella stroller instead of riding in it most of the day. She said her pet wolf was riding in it and she would periodically walk around to the front to talk to him. Miss 7 used the map to decide where we were going next. She is a good leader.
I have sketched a face for my next canvas (once I get the courage and time to finish the current one I am working on) and am quite pleased with how it turned out. I used a picture of my daughter taken as part of her senior picture package a dozen years ago. At least I think I am happy with it - now that I look again - is her ear way too far back??? or is it just me??? I would really appreciate it if you would look carefully at her and tell me. I am tempted to move it up a tad and about one ear's width closer.
I have Miss 7 and Miss 2 today and tomorrow so my art time will be limited, but I hope to find some time this evening to get back to work on the Faces in Technicolor 3rd girl to get her to the point where I dare to share it with you.
For now, I am going to get a second cup of coffee and chill. The girls will be here within the half hour. I love them dearly and we will have a great day, but they will wear me out.
