#EDiM31A self portrait. Started packing the FLRT, today, she's back from the Harley Shop and working like a top.  Trips to the wine store and the bank, charged up my helmet, phone and tooth brush, got the recycle bin loaded and out on the curb for pick up tomorrow...  Two more days... and we're off on our fund raising ride, to provide a service dog to a female combat veteran. Any and all donations welcome

#EDiM30 A shoe.  I drew one of my motorcycle boots tonight, finished up vacuum packing my clothes.  Time to feed the dogs and get some rest.

Book 44 - Title Page

Book 44 - This is the palette and colors I'll be taking on my trip out West with the Women's Freedom Ride starting next Friday if the weather man is right in the rain.


#EDiM29 an animal.  I hope a bird qualifies as an animal,  so on Memorial Day had to draw an Eagle.

#EDiM28 Traffic Signs.  Had a busy day today, out to Edisto Beach for lunch with friends, then dinner with family tonight.

#EDiM27 Something old, how about a Lava Lamp, not antique old, but other than a self portrait of my old self, the oldest thing around here today.

#EDiM26 Something that makes me laugh, had to be my little dog Gracie.  Something that annoyed me greatly tonight, was my scanner, no matter how I changed the settings, it would not pick up the pink around Gracie, or on her collar.  Finally, I just gave up and used my phone to take a picture of the page.

#EDiM25 A musical instrument.  Had to give drawing my flute a try,  it's a bit squatty looking in this drawing.  I've always wanted to play the flute, so last year I bought one, found a teacher and started taking lessons.  I think I'm improving based on the fact that the dogs don't run out of the room when I practice anymore.

#EDiM24 Perfume, I found the Dolly Parton quote, and since I don't have any perfume bottles, but there is honeysuckle on my back fence... honeysuckle was my choice today.

#EDiM23 Draw something transparent.  I didn't really have a clue how to do this, so I used my indigo watercolor pencil to do a dark background.  I had just gotten a Molotow white acrylic ink marker, and used that to draw my glass coffee cup.

#EDiM22 A collection, I couldn't draw all my art supply hoard, so the ink tense pencils I packed for my recent trip.

#EDiM21 a bicycle.  Since I don't have one I used a photo on the internet to sketch a bike.  Supposed to rain all week, not looking forward to that at all.

#EDiM20 Something from my garden.  Had to give my new deep rich orange Hibiscus a try, besides the tomatoes and peppers aren't very interesting looking right now.

#EDiM19 My feet... just under the wire for Day 19 midnight is only a few minutes away.... sliding in... DONE!

#EDiM18 Something Sweet.  While I must admit I considered a self portrait, I settled on GummyBears... much more fun and easier to do while binge watching 2 seasons of Call the Midwife (I LOVE that show but never can keep up with seeing it live, so ITunes is my supplier).

#EDiM17 A power plug.  I just got a couple of double USB chargers to take on my trip, lots of stuff to charge up every night.

#EDiM15 a favorite tool, since I already drew my favorite art took on May 1st I decided my next favorite tool these days is my little Go-Pro wrench.

#EDiM14 A Mother's Day gift.  Ron and I went to Myrtle Beach today for the start of Bike Week, did a bit of shopping, had lunch at Fuddruckers, it was a fun day.

#EDiM13 A Tree, I chose a pine tree for this one.  Ron and I went to a playoff hockey game tonight, Rays played well, but sadly lost the game
4 - 3.  Good to see all our hockey buddies one more time.

#EDiM12 Something on my bookshelf.  Toss up between my black bear, dogbert or my flute breath exercise thingy... but my dogbert doll is a favorite so he won the toss.

#EDiM 11 A Cactus, unfortunately I drug my hand through the wet paint on the cactus flower.  Not the first time I've done something like this, probably not the last.

#EDiM10 Draw your lunch.  I must admit I took a photo of my lunch, and used the photo to draw my lunch tonight.  I LOVE Mellow Mushroom Calzones, and since I had the day off today and we could take a long lunch hour, Calzones for lunch.

#EDiM 8 the smallest thing on my desk... a paper clip drew the Windows Help paper clip.  I always thought that was a bizarre icon and wondered what those boys in Seattle were smoking when they came up with that?

#EDiM 7 Something Architectural,  so my something is a group of fantasy houses, pink and purple and orange too.  Quiet Sunday, did the weekly shopping this afternoon, grilled burgers and steamed corn for dinner.  The corn on the cob was surprisingly good, didn't think it was late enough in the season for really good corn, but I was delighted to be wrong.

#EDiM 6 a car or truck,  so I had to draw our little yellow smart car.  Ron and I went on the International Women's Ride today,  a lot of the women who will be going on the Women's Freedom Ride this June, came to Charleston today to do this ride.  Everyone is getting excited about the ride this June.

#EDiM 5 an Onion or Garlic, I chose a bunch of green onions.  I use onions to cook, but never have really liked raw onions.  My husband LOVES onions,  I always give him the onions in my salads when we go out to eat.

#EDiM 4 StarWars day today,  I usually try not to look at what other people do on these, but I saw several Yoda pictures on Facebook early this morning... so while doing Yoda might have been fun, I decided to give R2D2 a try.

#EDiM 3 Draw something in your kitchen you use every day.  So my K-cup coffee, have 1 cup of coffee every day and I waste a lot less coffee with the Keurig coffee maker.  Before the Keurig, I used to throw away half a pot of coffee every day.

#EDiM 2 Today something I use in my hair.  Pony tail hair ties,  when I ride my motorcycle I use 3 of these.  One for the first pony tail, then about half way down a small tie, and hair way between again another, this way my hair doesn't get in a knot from the wind.
