A sea turtle for Alana…

Sea turtle

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!

    1. 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.

  1. 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
