…before drawing butterflies in my next art piece I decided that maybe I should do some practice drawings first
Here is my first attempt at a butterfly. I think it is a bright idea to practise first. I discovered that adding colour after using my new fountain pen could be a problem because the ink from the pen bleeds when it comes in contact with water.
Camping in the local parks is prohibited but these girls were merely sheltering themselves from the cold wind coming off the lake. I knew there were girls in the tent from from all the chatter and giggles I heard as I walked by with my dog.
Seeing this swarm of seagulls over that bright blue water of Lake Ontario was a bright spot in my day.
Can’t believe that this is the last day of the challenge, SquareUp. Becky has done a great job of hosting this challenge and I’m looking forward to the next Square challenge in April.
I have a few more square photos that didn’t make it into to 31 days so I’ll just post them as a bonus. You can interpret them anyway you want….messed up, tangled up, up the road, iced up, dried up, etc.
I’ve posted an uprooted tree earlier in the challenge but this one is spectacular. We discovered it on our walk through Ball’s Falls Conservation Area. Another uprooted or fallen tree had an interesting hollowed out core and I found myself looking up into the hollows of this tree.
Yesterday I went back to High Park to get in some more steps. I had to make a delivery to a friend who is in a downtown hospital so I decided to drive home along Bloor St and stop at the park for a quick walk. The walk ended up being a lot longer than I meant it to be and I had to make a decision at some point as to whether take a short cut back to the car or go the long way round. The short cut involved taking that huge stairway up the hill that I posted about near the beginning of this challenge.
In the end I decided to take the stairs. About half way up I stopped to take a picture of my progress. When I finally got to the top of the stairs I counted 90 steps.
