glsdiolas from our garden 2017

Jaunty plumes of glad July
Beckon to bees passing by-
“Hello! Hello! Come and see

What garden pleasures there may be.”
Crickets chirp an invitation –
“There is nectar here for your libation.
Colours there are to entice your eye,
Brilliant hues and perfumes to try.
Come once, come twice. Pause for a sip.
It’s worth your time to make the trip.”
Pansies curtsy as breezes play
And rare is the bee that stays away.

My 31 Day Drawing Challenge

My 31 Day Art Challenge to Myself

I decided, after viewing some wonderful daily art challenges done by artists,  that I should set myself that kind of exercise.  Therefore, I have challenged myself to produce one sketch a day all month.  Here are some of the sketches I have done in the last eleven days.  Altogether I have done eleven sketches – twenty more to go.  I hope to see some improvements.  Let me know what you think.
