Crayola Crayons on construction paper
Alana was on Facebook declaring to all of her friends that she wanted a pet sea turtle. She’s young and she bounces back, but David and I have yet to get over losing our Samoyed Sam, so to us, another pet is out of the question. But I did tell her that I would draw her a turtle. I meant that as a joke, but I realized that a promise is a promise. So, I found a sea turtle that I could draw. And began to get to work.
I don’t know what possessed me to use crayons as my choice of medium, but I had a good time with them, and I’m pleased with how it turned out. Alana seems to like it too, but she doesn’t have much empty wall space to spare, so I don’t really know what she’s going to do with it.
I wish I had a whole bunch to share with you, but all I have is a commissioned piece. I would have posted about that but I was more excited about my turtle! The only thing I’ve been tackling with gusto, is reading. Book after book after book. I can’t get enough of the “And they lived happily ever after.”
Be Well and Happy!

It’s beautiful! Try some books by Bryce Courtenay. Icam addicted to him now. Also like The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.
nice turtle, the little one should be pleased.
I think you may be a “readaholic”. There is no cure! I am 73 and it only gets worse,thank God it doesn’t rot your liver!
there are days when I have a really hard time deciding to read or draw. I am also partial to the
“happily ever after” also.
That is so lovely….:) Nice to hear you are enjoying your reading…I loved the Forgotten Garden too but, didn’t like her other one “the House at riverton”…in fact I gave up on it, lol
Wow! What a beautiful turtle. You are very talented.
