Ssshhhh everyone is sleeping....



  On a hot afternoon everyone is dozing, not much else you can do!  



Not a whisker is stirring......


Good job I have my new sketchbook to hand.

I went to the local art shop for some supplies yesterday and the assistant informed me that two big boxes of Fabriano watercolour pads & sketchbooks had arrived.....would I like to go down to she stock room with her and see what has arrived.  Yes Please!
I bought a great big thick sketchbook with creamy yellow paper, far too big for my sketch bag......but lovely to think of how I will fill it.
I also bought a new watercolour pad and some tubes of paint too.
New art supplies always make me happy!

Oh that looks so relaxing!!! I really like the cats and dog and how they sleep. Getting new art materials is always great fun and exciting, thinking about all the possibilities... Its like being a kid in a candy shop : )

I LOVE getting new art supplies - something only us who paint can understand - my daughters don't get how I can get so excited over a tube of paint! Great little sketches too

Oooh, I'm getting sleepy. I can just feel the summer warmth in your sketches. Lucky you, getting to poke around in a stockroom full of art supplies!

August is the month to sleep I think we are all tired of the heat.

Your sketches are lovely, Cathy, especially the dog. No need to say it, but enjoy your new "toys"! ;)

art supplies: the best presents to buy for yourself!
Great lazy, sleepy sketches... I can almost hear the crickets chirping in the warm afternoon!

Love your sketches.

Enjoy your new art supplies - I bought lots back from Spain so can't wait to play too.
