The Rain, The Sea, The Night Sky.

   Here are a couple of illustrations from my sketchbook:





   Today I was outside watering my plants when a squirrel scampered past me on a fence. He was a brave squirrel because the fence was only about a foot away from me, and usually squirrels like to keep their distance  Unless they are squirrels that live at tourists attractions and are accustomed to humans feeding them bits of pretzels or popcorn. I met a squirrel at the Ballard Locks that came right up to me while eating a a sandwich and practically demanded I share it with him. But anyway, the best part of the squirrel I saw today was that he actually had an acorn in his mouth. Squirrels are always pictured in art as having acorns in their mouths or tiny hands, but I never actually see squirrels with acorns, until today! It was pretty darn cute.

Sounds like it was a great experience, and totally cute! I have yet to see one with a nut but maybe today will be the day. . . .

Yes, it was definitely cute! It is nice to see at least one cute thing (in person) a day.
