Day 3 of AEDM - A wise old owl

I had a fairly busy day so didn't get time 
to work any more on the multi-canvas painting. 
However, I did manage a quick pen sketch 
of a recent dollar store find.

Pencil-free sketch in Holcroft A5 sketch journal using ZIG Millennium and PITT pens. 



I was going to splash some colour on but not enough time.

  1. Hello Serena, how AWESOME this pen drawing is, I love it !! How cute is the blue owl for inspiration and your collaged HOME piece is beautiful. So glad you made time to join in with us today. Good luck again today on creating/painting! Happy Sunday.

  2. I couldn't draw that in PENCIL, much less pen. Your art really blows me away. You are very gifted and talented.

    Apparently. our former president H W Bush, was responsible for the difference in the time change. I know England sets theirs back a week earlier, as do a few other countries. Glad to know you don't participate in that insane way to manipulate time!

    And thanks for the G+ info. I have a friend who changed over to G+ and she's had her blog for over 5 years, but it wasn't listed on her "about" page. It's where I looked first. Thankfully, I have her blog on my sidebar, so I can click on it directly. She told me ever since her daughter accidentally switched her over, she's had nothing but problems with it. And there were a couple of blogs yesterday that took me to their home pages, rather than the direct links thru Leah's blog. It must be the way they linked their post.

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth. I actually feel more comfortable with a pen than a pencil now. I've learned to live with the mistakes or have become clever at disguising them. lol

      There's a saying going around on Facebook about daylight savings - When told the reason for Daylight Savings the Old Indian said, "Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket".

      Yes, I've noticed that a lot of Google+ users don't think to add their website or blog links to the Google+ profile. I have no idea why because it makes it harder for people to find them elsewhere online. Tell your friend that she can easily switch back to a Blogger profile by going to the Overview page and clicking the little 'gear/cog' icon on the right hand side under her profile picture. She then needs to select Revert to Blogger Profile option. Very easy to do.

  9. You know, I came here early this morning to read your post and left a comment, and my comment is not here! Huh. I am not going to trust commenting on blogs via my iphone anymore. Better to do it from the laptop. I wonder how many other comments I made elsewhere never actually took. Anyhoo, I ADORE your owl drawing!! And I love the statue, as well as that lovely lovely HOME sign!
