May Into June

First a little something pretty. These were a couple of color pencil sketches I did up in Door County.

How's that for an ugly background?!?

The quote: "Do not remove a fly from your friend's forehead with a hatchet." —Chinese Proverb

'Twas a busy weekend with a couple of bike rides, and a home improvement project. Nice to be able to do the fun things, but still get something accomplished. I would not have been able to hang that door on my own...thanks Dad!

The quote: "Cats regard people as warmblooded furniture." —Jacquelyn Mitchard, Deep End of the Ocean

Gimli certainly regards me thus. He was very cuddly last night, but it was more due to the cool temperatures than his deep affection for me. I choose to believe there's a well-spring of love there too...delusions can improve the quality of one's life immeasurably.

The quote: "Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists somewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." —Bill Waterson

Before you go trying to identify the captain of the ship, I have to tell you the two sketches are unrelated. The man rides my train, the ship does not. I did the sketch of him first, but only the hair worked so I gave up on reality and doodled instead.
