Challenges 13, 14, and 15

Almost didn't make my self imposed deadline of one drawing each day in May. Today we had a luncheon at our house for our friend Esther, who is celebrating her 96th birthday! I mean, how many people even know a 96 year old. She is active, lives alone, mentally sharp and has school teacher handwriting. I can only hope to be doing as well should I make it to that age. So, finishing the leaves challenge was forcing this tired body to set priorities and chose to do the drawing for today. Obviously I managed. 



 The suggested drawing number 13 was obviously (I hope) a phone.


Number 14 was to draw what you see when you get up. This is the view from my bed. We have a two story house, so we see the tops of trees. 


Tonight's piece was to be of a leaf, leaves or trees. I chose my new coleus. Interesting leaves is this plants gift. Now I'm ready to unwind.

Good job nailing those EDM challenges. I personally don't have the attention span to do them because I always see "something else" that I like to draw... hahahaha
