Three old ladies

This picture has been around for years. Grandma died in 1970, so you know that this is old. It just struck me as funny so I sketched the three old ladies who were dressed for a luncheon. My grandma is on the right-barely tolerating the other two who are apparently not prim and proper! Think that my aunt in the in the center and I have no idea who is on the left  wearing a fur stole.

Finally, I can post this!

Over six months ago I did this envelope and the note inside as a gift for a dear friend who is retiring as the volunteer head of my annual calligraphy retreat. Carla is such a sweet person and has done so much for the Friends of Calligraphy. Today was the surprise presentation so now I can talk without worrying about spilling the beans.

Thank you Carla, for all your hard work!

More zentangles

I continue to work in my accordian fold moleskin allowing myself to just wander.

A friend suggested that I add iris since I had so much fun drawing them
at the old city cemetery. A nice idea!

Travel sketch

I visited the grandkids in Ohio. We stopped at Easton Mall which is a whole village of stores. The kids and I waited in the car while their mom ran into a store. I took advantage of down time to sketch.

Speaking of the children, here are the twins in dresses that I made for them.

....and big brother in his new shades.
