Merry Christmas 2011

Christmas of 1980 something, we had a chimney fire and we had all the fire trucks here to put it out as we watched in our PJ's out in the snow.  I remember most of the block coming out to see what all the commotion was.  The scene was a little bit of a blurr because all I cared about was that my new Castle Grey Skull that Santa brought me was safe!  That was a close one.  Anyway, Merry Christmas!

Varth Dader.

This is a villain I am working on.  Okay....I should probably give credit to Star Wars for this one.  It is good to be inspired though.  I was planning on doing a landscape painting as a gift to someone and this happened instead.  Inspiration is a funny thing, you never know where it might come from.  Maybe I will do that landscape thingy tomorrow.

Snow anyone?

Okay, December in Wisconsin and no snow!  Who's hogging it?  It's just not normal.  I guess I will have to adjust and just make a snowman out of marshmallows this year.

Looky looky.

Sometimes it is hard to believe things simply because you just can't see it.  That's where the trust comes in which ultimately leads to faith.  By the way, does believing in Santa the same as having faith in Santa?  Tis' the season.

Can you find the froggy?

Front and center is the answer.  Some like it, some don't.  Either way, if you find yourself there you better put on your honest best.

This is simply how most feel after Thanksgiving....ROUND.  It's not a bad feeling though, it is always good to be filled with good stuff.  I know I was filled with good stuff this past holiday.  Not just food, but family and fellowship.  So I guess this is a self portrait.

Do run run.

This is from a little something I am working on.  We'll see how it all turns out in the future.  Isn't that the way it all works?  Everything turns out somehow.

Hippo....wait....zebra. You choose. Life has so many different choices, some bite you in the butt even. Those are the choices you best learn from.

You're our only hope!

I had a good time watching Star Wars this past weekend with the kids.  So I drew this.  It's nice to see a story about finding your only hope, something we all are looking for.  The princess found hope in the form of a "to short to be a storm trooper" poser who happen to come across a tiny droid named R2.  Where does your hope come from?

Colorful and.....

I originally sketched this guy on a little peice of paper with an ink pen (my favorite) and then colored it using the Ipad.  The rough sketch is below.  Monsters are so fun because you can never go wrong because they are just made up creatures....I think.

Scribobinal Snowman.

Scribbling on the Ipad again.  I am trying to get used to Sketch Book Pro.  Sometimes it is hard to draw on glass with a marshmallow.

My oldest daughter, who is a whopping 7 years old, scored her first hat trick of her soccer career this past week!

Scribble Kong.

My daughters ended up watching KING KONG for a little while this past weekend.  They were intrigued by the idea of an enormous monkey that has a human girlfriend.  Who wouldn't be really.

I drew this one in a flash!

The Ipad and Sketchbook Pro is what I used to become the "Flash"!

I am now an Ipad nerd.

Gambling has paid off, I now have an Ipad that I can sketch on. This thing is fantastic!

Scooter time

One of my two year olds thinks she can ride anything as long as she wears a helmet! She is very extreme! I actually have to keep the car keys away from her.

Lil' bear time

It's funny how stuffed animals need to go places with their owners all the time. They are so demanding. My middleish child "feels" for her stuffed friends so they often make their way outdoors. I guess I would probably be the same way if I were stuffed.
