I've been tied up with things other than art and blogging for a while--back problems, a bit of yard work, made some business cards for a friend, got a hair cut, attended an art show opening, etc., etc. Tomorrow I will begin gathering papers for taxes. I will also make time to visit blogs and leave comments.
I did manage to work on this drawing at the Y on Thursday. I had nothing in mind so my friend Terry Smith Denton offered her photos. She evidently walks very early--like at dawn--and her farm abuts Corp property and the lake. This was just a portion of one photo. I haven't finished my trees and I'm not sure it looks like a lake. The lake (known by two names--Bugg's Island Lake and Kerr Lake) looks quiet but a 143-pound catfish was caught last year.
The above photos were taken with my New iPad (hard to believe), a belated birthday gift from my husband. He inadvertently ordered two and I convinced him we needed both--one for him; one for me. They were delivered by UPS on Friday so I've spent the weekend setting up two iPads. Apple was helpful each time I screwed up. I've read the manual and know how to use the keyboard now and I've played with the camera and made videos of my dog Willie. My husband has watched a movie on his--he was aiming for DaVinci Code but accidentally rented The Descendants--for a month. I haven't bought any art apps yet but I've looked. Any recommendations?
Here are a couple of self-portraits using the iPad.
