Yosemite, the last leg of the trip and our Marvelous May Give-away!

The days have been bathed in sunshine and billowy clouds while we were in Yosemite! I haven't been there since I was a child and can't believe how beautiful it is! Many of the trails were paved so Jennifer and Chloe could hike with us much easier. Many of the other trails, although not paved, were hard enough for her to do a bit of off roading too! Chloe had all the squirrels barked out warnings everywhere we were and about drove her crazy! She would just shake when she saw them. It couldn't have been a nicer trip accept if my ankle wasn't hurt, but I did discover that just one Motrin in the morning made me feel so much better!

I also was able to grab some sketching time and enjoyed being able to lose myself in nature! Hope you all are safe and sound as I continue,like you, to watch the storms in OK and pray! Nature is so unpredictable! Last year at this time we were traveling those roads on our way to Kansas City, MO for market. I can't even imagine the horror and devastation those wonderful people are having to endure! . When donating your resources to help aid in there recovery remember to choose a reputable agency and send cash!

Since my WiFi service was so scattered and spotty I decided to include today in our drawing! Yeah, one last opportunity to get your name in to win big! I will be going back and gathering all the posts while I was gone and today's to add to my hat before drawing! Make sure to check out the blog in a few days for an updated picture of the basket!

I love your drawings - so wonderful all in pencil. Photos are great too. Just getting around to reading, internet is not on all the time right now, spotty in our forest. So glad you had a nice trip and Jennifer and Cleo could be there with you too.

Looks like you had perfect weather for Yosemite. I wish I had your eye for drawing. The sketches are so beautiful.

Desiree -what a wonderful trip!
And Martha - stop wishing and start drawing!

That kind of beautiful sketching comes with lots and lots of practice and is available to ANYONE who is willing to do the work. YOU have it in you too!
