What did I do this Labor Day weekend? Wellllll.....

I visited with friends ~


Yeah - he really is there!  Look in the upper left hand corner to see my little toad friend hiding in plain sight!

I rescued a little baby~


This little guinea got caught in the weeds.  I rescued him - and couldn't resist taking a picture, too =)  After he recovered from his little shock, he went happily off with his family ~


 
Then I spent some time just hanging out with the horses and I could resist doing a sketch of each one of them ~

"In the Tall Grass" ~ Hershey


"Time to Munch!" ~ Billie Jane

What did you do with your weekend?
Hope you had as much fun as I did!

Blessings,
Kathy

PS - Yep!  Those little ACEOs are heading to my Etsy shop!

  3. I saw the toad right away, I love toads. That baby is just too adorable, as are most babies. The sketches are wonderful and will make beautiful paintings, although they are perfect as is.

  4. I love these images of the animals around your place. I caught a glimpse of a frog hopping away while I watered some flowers this past weekend, but that's it! They have good camouflage - glad you pointed out where it was in the piture.
    I think we make too much noise to see animals around my house. My neighbors see bears and deer here all the time.

  6. It would be great to be able to sketch moments like this on my paper. My sketches always look more like doodles, though:)

  7. I admire your drawing talent, especially with horses, which I think are very difficult to sketch.
