And Now It’s Over

There’s always a touch of sadness when something ends, even when we’ve been looking forward to that ending. So it is with Inktober for me. In a lot of ways, I know I checked out a few days early, losing some

Surprise!

Today’s drawing surprised me. I didn’t think I could draw this old oak tree with its friendly-looking squirrel. Well, actually, I was fairly confident about the tree, but I’ve never been able to draw animals very well, other than a

Child’s Play

Remember the trees we drew when we were children? You know… where we first drew two straight lines going up and down and then topped it off with a big, round ball of leaves? Later, when our drawing skills advanced

How Not to Draw a Willow Tree

When Cheeky Monkey Mind and I did our “silly searches” last month and put together our Inktober list, I was delighted when the prompt words creepy, climb, thunder, coat, tree brought up the Golden Curls Willow. Now, honestly, I don’t know the

A Prickly, Tickly, Sticky Situation

With today’s prompt words — tired, ship, prickly, tasty, tree — our search went directly to the prickly ash tree. In Monopoly parlance, we did not pass GO; we did not collect $200.00. We just went straight to the prickly

Just For the Fun of It

When Cheeky Monkey Mind suggested yesterday that today’s drawing should have twelve — yes, count ’em, twelve — trees, I shook my head. No way, Cheeky. I have enough to think about when drawing only one tree, so don’t even

A Sight to Behold

Today, Cheeky Monkey Mind and I followed a little trail that led to an expensive ghost tree.  Yes, those were our prompt words, and what we found is said to be a true sight to behold. Once you’ve seen the Davidia
