Easy Peasy…except Richard doesn’t like peas.

Okay, remember how I was struggling over the first “Making Peace with January”?  I went back to the idea…after first taking a more observant look at the subject matter I was planning to draw, a seagull in front of a mackerel sky.  I did the sketch in just a few minutes….easiest thing I’ve done in a long time.

As I mentioned, I have no need for making peace with February…so, I’ll think of a different title for this:

EPSON MFP imageGoing to play with the color a little in the sky….so it isn’t so bland…but it’s coming along.

BTW, I’ve put some drawing up on eBay, just go to advanced search and put in my name.  If you’d like to see more of my work in general…go to my website at RoxanneBaldwin.com 

Going once……

A while back, some of you may remember me doing a drawing of an MS Bike Race for the MS Society of Connecticut’s silent auction.  To refresh your memory:



My good friend, Greg, put a bid on it….and I supposed that would be the only bid I’d get.  But no!  Greg was outbid.  I don’t know how much it went for….would love to find out.  Anyway, here’s the drawing on display at the event.




This was in a room where we were being served drinks and hors d’oevres.  I had a couple of glasses of wine and started taking pictures that I thought would be fascinating for this blog.  So, for a laugh, here they are….and a good representation of what alcohol can do to your judgement.


Despite this, I resisted the time-worn obsession of taking a picture of my food.

It was an interesting night.  One thing on the live auction was an electric guitar, used and signed by Paul McCartney.  I wanted just to touch it, but I didn’t have the nerve.

I don’t know how well the rest of the artwork in the silent auction fared….one was a drawing by Bono, which to me looked incredibly like one of the very original and humorous drawings by the late Beatle, John Lennon.  Oh, well.

So, thanks to my friends, Greg and Cathy….and to the rest of you, have a Happy Holiday!
