This is watercolor and micron pen in the Moleskine sketchbook. There's not much to say about this one, except that I really liked the way the shadows of the tines lay. This would be a very meager posting if not for the fact that I've been tagged in one of those blog games that floats endlessly about cyberspace. EWian, a member of the EDM group has kindly asked to know more about by having me reveal six random things about myself. You can find EWian's six random things here

http://ewian.blogspot.com/2008/11/tagged.html

For those who want to know about me, here goes:

I work as a library technician in a college/university. I've been there for 16! years, and mostly still look forward to going to work every day. Of course, having 3 months off each summer has a lot to do with that.

I am an avid gardener, and although I live in townhouse condo, I do my best with the small space I have. My neighbors have told me that I single handedly improved the condo appearance by upping the standards for those who live around me. Now we all garden together, and have created a lovely spot.

I also love to cook and bake bread. I recently wore out my old bread machine. Buns are rising even as I type this.

I'm a Gossip Girl addict. I can't stop watching it. Seriously! What's wrong with me?

I love to travel and am currently researching Mediterranean cruises. Previous trips included 3 jaunts to various parts of Mexico.

And lastly, I secretly wish I was a much more exciting person!

Here are some people I would like to know more about:

Winna http://winnasworld.blogspot.com/

Leigh http://findingmywings-leighbunkin.blogspot.com/

Sandy http://myfiddlestix.blogspot.com/

And lastly, an open invitation to all the newcomers to EDM. I would love to learn more about you!

Very beautiful drawing. Simple and very efective.

First, nice drawing, I liked the rope..

Second, thank you for playing along. I imagine you are a happy person being around books all day at work... joy... 3 months off sounds like a lot of fun time to garden together with your neighbours.

Great way to combine two EDMS....very clever. And really nicely done.

Gossip Girl....yep, another addict. My daughter comes over and watches it every Monday with me.

Way to kill two birds with one stone! The way you used the rope to frame the fork is quite clever.

My computer crashed and I am just getting back online and catching up. Give me a couple of days, okay?

My breadmaker is 20 years old and I've used it a pretty fair amount. You must be a very prolific baker!

You did a good job on your fork and rope too. Two in one is a good way to get through a long list!

so nice to learn more about you. hope we get to see your garden? And how lucky you are, being surrounded by books, I would never get anyhting done! And no...more exciting? We all think we're "boring"...I would love to meet you and I'm sure I won't wish you to be "more exciting!"

Your fork drawing is neat - nicely done! Thanks for the tag, I'll try to reply soon. Cool to learn about you! I'd love to work in a library - it's one of my projects actually : )

i like the delicacy of this and the way you framed it with the rope is really clever.
