Yes, I know I’m killing the mood on this whole drawing challenge. It’s tax week and I’ve been sick. Yuck. I spent a couple of hours today catching up.
Day 8 – Amusement Park
I’m not a fan of long lines, over-priced food, and sunburn. It reminds me of being a little kid and waiting in a line that seems to never end, only to spend 10 seconds scalding your backside on the metal slide before landing in a puddle. I’ve been missing my Draw Something matches with Don, so I drew this in that style, only allowing 30 seconds to draw the whole picture to get my point across.
Day 9 – Your “Spirit Animal”
Spirit animal? Like I believe in that stuff! If I were going to compare myself to any animal, it would be this one:
Grandad Bluff is the closest thing I had to a mountain when I was growing up. It’s a mesa that towers over LaCrosse, Wisconsin at a whopping 590 feet above the city, and 1183 feet above sea level. It was the backdrop to my childhood. I rode my bike all over the city, looking up and imagining what it would be like to be in real mountains. It’s where I went when I snuck out to watch fireworks on New Years Eve when I was 14. I “parked” there with a boyfriend. I took my out of town friends there on touristy trips, attended birthday and graduation parties there, and even climbed past the fence and sat on a rock (don’t tell my mom), dreaming about the day I would leave LaCrosse behind. Now I live in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains – my dream come true – and honor the place in my heart for Grandad Bluff, the mountain of my youth.
Day 11 – Last request if the world was ending
Easy. My last request will always be that EVERYONE will come to know how much they are loved by God, and choose to embrace His grace and mercy as the sons and daughters they are.
Day 12 – What did you want to be when you grew up?
I traced the hard lines then filled in the details because I’m trying to hurry and get caught up on this challenge.
Imagine a red-headed Wonder Woman. That’s what I wanted to be.
Day 13 – Favorite Mythical Creature
I blogged once about living the mermaid life. You should read it.
