It’s been raining all day so what’s a dog to do. Mope around, sleep on a stack of pillows and sigh every once in awhile.

Last year I posted a drawing of a silver maple next door that had been cut down to the trunk. I assumed then that it would soon be removed but a year later it’s still there. As you can see it’s holding on and has grown some new branches.

A lot of the time I’m just drawing what’s on the kitchen table, in this case drinking glasses. One is actually a Bonne Maman Jelly jar that we use as a drinking glass.

I thought I would draw my vacation beard before I shaved it off for New Years Eve. I think it’s also the only drawing of me wearing my glasses. I better get used to it as I now need them to draw on the small Palm Zire screen.
