Dog tired like Zoey

 Zoey hides her head
iPad drawing 
8 X 10 inches

Long day teaching today, but so much fun.
Still leaving the house at 7 a.m. and returning at
7:30p.m. -- pretty much jumping and talking
and carrying on all day -- Whew!  Tired.
So I decided to draw Zoey sleeping on her
Winnie the Pooh quilt on her doggie bed.
She pushes that quilt around until it's just
right, then shoves her head in so the light
won't bother her.

For the aficionados of the iPad drawing.
I will probably stick to the finger for
my virtual art for awhile, because I can't
wait to get back to the paint/paper/canvas
equation.  As the song says -- "there
ain't nothing like the real thing baby."
Still this sure is fun.

Have a getting-back-to-the-real-thing day.

Oh, this one is so funny and fresh! I like the colors very much! I am curious to see more.

You are rockin' the iPad!

I totally agree Barbara, iPad art is only fun but not too serious.

I've even given up on my mechanical pencil and am using wooden 2B pencils for work notes! It is back to natural media for me... although I did have a riot drawing my Christmas card with my new Wacom tablet in Adobe Illustrator on my Mac! But then, what can you expect from a graphic designer...

Thank you Kathrin,

It is funny. We bought used children's quilts for the dog at a garage sale, and she messes them about and twists and turns them until they are exactly right for a nest for
her on her doggie bed.

Take care,

I love this "painting" and I love Zoey! Oh, my Tommy would play with her until she would be so tired that she wouldn't care about the state of her Pooh blanket!

Hi Carol,

iPad art is a great diversion, and that's what worries me. Actually the iPad is an incredibly powerful diversion. Thanks for all your help Carol.

Loved your iPad videos.

Back to the paint in the tubes and the big, fat brushes. Yum.

Hi Sally,

Thank you so much. I've been having trouble submitting my comments on my computer. Find the iPad a bit awkward for that. Thanks a lot. Well -- you are actually way better on the computer than I am. But the drawing program is made for people like me.
