I haven't had time to post much, getting back into work has been crazy as you all know - and all else flies out the door except working, eating and sleeping.
But we did get a chance to kayak this weekend on a very swollen river - about 4 feet above normal. I got these turtle pictures
They seemed a bit dazed at how high the water was, I say that because there were so many swimming underwater that they kept bumping my kayak. I was sorry that I didn't have my camera when we saw the huge snapper laying her eggs. I gave her wide berth, and she was awfully dusty and dirty but really a sight to behold.
In stead of just taking pictures of animals, I want to continue to draw them. but alas, no time this week for hand drawn turtles. So I submit Mr. Fish head instead, obviously a work in process and a funny colored picture.
I've just finished his first level of color and need to go onto more color and detail. I always hesitate at this point - worrying about "ruining" something. But as DH says, "don't be a jerk, just do it" or something along those comforting lines. He's right, it's not a frickin Picasso and how else will I learn except from mistakes.
Happy Animal Wednesday everyone! Enjoy your pets
