As a child candy corn was my favorite candy, I especially liked the ones that looked like pumpkins.... sadly the grown up me is a type II diabetic and can't have candy corn anymore... but I can draw some :-)

I lost the link to the photo of this pumpkin... I thought it was so clever I tried to draw/paint it... Another day of laundry, chores and shopping... but finally everything is washed and the final load is in the dryer.
Hockey update, the coach DID swap goalies, and we pulled off a win... this goalie was much better in my opinion... it's early in the season yet... maybe the other fellow will learn.

Worked on my boat painting a little... between loads of laundry and trips to the store. Now we're off to the hockey game... hope the goalie does a better job tonight (or the coach lets the other goalie play).

Home made pizza for dinner, and a relaxing evening at home... We missed the opening home game last weekend, so tomorrow is the first hockey game for us... I'm looking forward to hockey season... I do enjoy the game. I'm really proud of my Grand-daughter Ashton who plays hockey.

I haven't had a bit of rest since we got back from Kentucky... today I had to go to court for several hours, then the shooting match this evening... which I totally blew by not loading my magazines with the correct number of bullets.. a really stupid mistake. Tomorrow will be the first evening that I'm home this week... I'm looking forward to it.

I enjoy my computer forums and sites... but after 5 days being disconnected it is amazing the pile of email I have to go thru... what did people do before email? It's hard to remember life without my electronic master.
We worked our butts off today, the payoff was a spectacular view from the top of a mountain. Our original choice of a trail was canceled because the group from Friday didn't get in until 3am the rain completely washed out the trail... feeling lucky we didn't choose that trail for Friday.
Spent a quiet day together, no curvy mountain roads... had a good lunch together and even a nice nap... before registration this evening. I was a little disappointed that the 'packet' only contained 1 of each sticker... so that even though Ron and I both paid the same price, he got a packet of goodies, and a name tag... and I got a name tag... WTF?
Funny how much I HATE paved mountain roads... scare me silly... and yet don't mind one bit climbing straight up a mountain road covered in mud and rocks, slipping and sliding the whole way up... irrational?... probably... but there it is.

I tried drawing those really close hash marks for the shadow... made my eyes cross... and it took forever... the color on this is too intense, the waterbrush doesn't lend itself to subtle color shifts... this shell is a combination of ivory, pale (very pale) pink, and pale lavenders too... I did the best I could, it's a subject I'd like to attempt again.

It is so hard to draw/paint Gracie, she is totally white, with only 3 tiny brown spots on her ears... she's a rough coat JRT and sometimes the hair on her head sticks straight up (like today)... she looks so cute when it does that...

My new concealed carry pistol only weighs 12 ounces.. I wanted something lighter... it does KICK really hard, wouldn't want to shoot it a lot, but it'll be fine for what I want it for. Going out for seafood for dinner... Ron's feeling much better.
