Sketchbook antics. . .




If you stopped by here for tea and cake this week then you will know that a white deer came to visit me. She was very insistent on staying and is happily wandering around the art bunker.  In many cultures seeing a white deer is regarded as being very lucky and magical.  
Well dears, since she arrived I've been inundated with alsorts of peoples and creatures turning up unexpectedly in my sketchbook wanting to see the white deer.  These three tribal princesses stepped out of my sketchbook yesterday and are busy turning my art bunker into a magical forest for the white deer.
So I'm writing this while perched high up on a branch of a magnificent oak tree that just happens to have sprung up over night.... The owl that branch this is, is a little put out, so I better climb down and find somewhere else to perch. 

Am sharing my Fun and Nonsense with Paper Saturdays and Sunday Sketches Do hope it's a little quieter in your neck of the woods... :)

Oh Catherine, what a magical and wonderful story is developing at your art bunker. I can't wait to see the following installment, your imagination is so great, I am trying to picture the full scene in my mind (you may have to sketch yourself perched on that owl tree... with the owl looking at you sideways from the end of the branch!). This is really great to follow and your art only enhances it all.

These girlies are fabulous! And, what a magical time you are having in your art bunker hehe! Be careful not to upset the owl too much! Though I am sure he won't mind sharing his branch with you! xx

I just LoVe your tribal princesses, and while their intentions are good, creating space for the magic of White Deer, it seems they're taking liberties with your space! I hope you discover a comfy perch while they're visiting!

What a wonderful blog! I love your "characters"!

Debbie said...

I always enjoy your imaginative posts, and this week was a wonderful treat for the eyes! Loved the tribal girls and the white deer from your last post. I took a peek down the page and saw that your daughter has moved out. I know how hard it is to deal with that, so all my best prayers will be said! xoxo

I enjoy your stories and drawings. It is like stepping into another reality when I read a book. The best thing is your stories come with illustrations!

I read your earlier post about wordpress. There are many who like that website because of its flexibility. I have two urls on there but couldn't wrap my head around how their system works. So you're not alone in your experience:) Good luck!
