Well drawing a screw proved a challenge for me... this goofy looking thing is the best I could do... couldn't find a quote... that wasn't rude, crude and socially unacceptable... so painted, message...
Panera Bread for breakfast then pack the car and head to the mountains.

I rarely drink Margaritas... but if I'm going to have a drink other than wine or beer... it will be a Margarita... besides they have cool looking glasses and a great yellow green color.
Well Flickr rolled out a new interface, doesn't work that well looks like a bad imitation of Facebook (which I don't really like that much either). Added my complaints to the thousands piling up in the help forums. Don't web programmers TEST their code before moving to production?

Tried to do a continuous line drawing of my left palm.... I still get lost doing those.. that's why my little finger ended up looking bigger than my thumb LOL...
Watching the Preakness... will Orb have a shot at the triple crown this year? We'll know pretty soon.

I love my yellow Lamy pen so much, when I saw a yellow Lamy mechanical pencil I had to have it... I must admit I don't use it much anymore... too hard for watercolor paper, and not dark enough for note taking... so it is just pretty to look at... otherwise useless.
My favorite pencil is a 4B Koh-I-Noor... ugly but useful... so I didn't draw it.

This little Rhino I got at Barnes and Nobel book store. It caught my eye because it is a bright red/orange.. and it is labeled as 'Rhino Eraser'.. I have never used it as an eraser... I enjoy looking at it too much.
So I'm hoping an eraser counts as a figurine.

Couldn't decide between boxing gloves or a baseball glove... boxing gloves won out for today's challenge to draw gloves. Used my new Noodlers Cape Code Cranberry Ink in a 'red' Preppy fountain pen. I really like these fountain pens... added plus that they are so inexpensive (less than $5.00).

Location of the Lorax forest near my home. My husband and I often take our Jeep into the forest and enjoy the swamps where the swamp fox hid to pester the British during the Revolutionary War.
The Long Leaf pines, which used to cover 70 million acres of Southern forest, now exist in only 4 million acres.

Spent the day in Columbia SC at the state GOP convention.... ran way longer than it should have met with our friends for dinner afterwards... and then the long drive home.... and unlike everyone else I'll have to do it again on Monday.
Kentucky horse won the derby... congratulations to ORB... sure would be nice to see a triple crown winner this year.

Joy... Another tough concept to draw... I must admit I'm enjoying seeing everyone's drawings each day, it is tough to come up with something unique.
The oops at the bottom of the page... no way I could turn the 'A' I wrote into an 'M'... senior moment... forgot it was May LOL.

EDiM#2 - Draw your favorite sound. That's a tough one, how do you draw a sound? I suppose music is my favorite sound. All kinds of music... my brothers are very musical as is my daughter... I sang in the choir as a teenager, and played the piano... but my talent (if any) isn't in music. I do love the sound of music.

A group of artists on Flickr and now on Facebook... every May, choose a list of things to draw.. and every day in May everyone draws something based on the daily suggestion. Today, we draw something bubbly. So I drew my husband's SodaStream machine. After a visit to my daughter's for Christmas one year and Ron got to see my son-in-law Jon's SodaStream... he of course had to have one. He mostly uses it to make soda water... which he drinks plain. Sometimes he adds scotch. I don't like plain soda water and I don't like scotch... but I do believe since this machine creates bubbly water it meets the goal of something bubbly.
