athletic shoe viewed and drawn (lying on stomach) under the coffee table. For those who might ask (Mom and Wally) no, the shoe was not on a stomach, and no, I was not under the coffee table. It's a little boring. I'm sorry. But, boy did I nail the shape of that shoe, or what?!

Pastel done on brown craft board, (scanned and some detail & lighting added in Photoshop just for the EDM). I buy these 5" X 8" X 1/2"thick "boards" with grommets and a shoe-lace-like tie, at Michael's (craft store); to do pastel paintings on and hang on door knobs and other cool hanging places.

Blind contour with typography and a little color added to calm the eye. This challenge made me mad, but I was in a bad mood anyway. Maybe that's why I selected these items to draw. But I like the way it turned out...so I'm in a good mood again. Thank you.

I might have a slightly different goal in doing these drawings. While others write that they are practicing to produce more accurate and detailed drawings, I am delighted with the screwy results. Not that I try to be inaccurate (that would probably produce a more accurate drawing), but I like the "surprise element". Some are so wacky they make me laugh out loud...and that's got to be a good thing. These are a couple of my wackier ones.
I haven't tried this since art school days (so long ago it was almost in a previous life). So, now I have a new obsession.
The blobs are when I stopped momentarily to think about where I was, and where I wanted to go...but did not lift the pen from the paper.
