Sketchbook Tuesday :: windy decisions

Last week we went for a short hike on our town's Greenway Trail, just to get outside, enjoy the spring day, and do a little sketching. I settled into a spot along the river, where I hoped I'd be protected from the wind. Not. It was a challenge just keeping my sketchbook open! So this was done quickly, and distractedly. But listening to the fast river water, the birds, and yes, even the wind, well that was very nice indeed.
A few weeks ago the wonderful Jennifer Edwards awarded me not one, but two, blogging awards. Thank you Jennifer!

A bit overwhelmed, I am still trying to decide just how to handle passing these awards on! I am supposed to list random facts about myself and answer specific questions. So here is a random fact: I have a terrible time making decisions. Most of the time. But if you've been visiting here for a while you probably knew that. Now here are the specific questions. You have no idea how difficult it is for me to decide on an answer for each one!

My favorite color is…ochre, or teal, or rose, copper brown, blue, sometimes green...
My favorite number is…13. Absolutely.
My favorite drink is…Pomegranate Blueberry tea, or wine. Occasionally an egg cream, but I haven't had one of those in years.
My favorite animal is… dogs. And cats. I am partial to sheep, too, but I've never known one personally.
Facebook? or Twitter?…Facebook. I don't have a Twitter account. All I need is another networking sight.
Getting or Giving presents…Giving. Definitely. Especially when I can make the gift.
My Favorite day…today! Hands down today has to be the one I like best.
My Favorite flower… I do love roses. And daisies.
My Passion… creating, drawing, painting, homeschooling Kiddo, reading, cooking...

Now, in order to pass these awards on, I first ask that if you haven't already, please do visit Jennifer's blog, Drawn2Life. She has been putting together some pretty awesome drawing lessons. I am still wishing to draw like her someday! And the rest of the recipients? They are you. Yep you. Because I could never choose just 10, or whatever. So the awards go to you. When you take time to stop in and leave a comment, you add sunshine to my day! Thank you!

Ann what a nice watercolor sketch - don't know how you can paint when it is windy and do it so well. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely sketch - you seem to live in a very beautiful area! I can't imagine how to paint outside in the wind, so I'm all the more impressed ; )!
