Robins nest every year in a sheltered spot under our back porch roof.Read More
This morning I saw this little fellow contentedly munching the remains of our kale, which was sticking up above the snow. We didn't pull the it out of the ground this fall because it always seemed to perk up after a freeze. I'm glad the bunny waited until winter. He'll get his B-vitamins! Our dog Lydia likes to hunt for him in the yard after dark but he is far to quick for her!
Every other Friday I meet two sketching companions at nearby Como Park. As the weather has cooled, we've moved inside to the Conservatory. I recently captured some Koi gestures while gazing into the dark koi pond and hardly gazing at my paper. I enjoy the energy of gesture drawings - with live fish it's impossible to capture much else because of the constant movement -- in this case the eyes and mouths really stood out! It might be helpful to remember this movement while re-designing my minnow stencil!
