I find rocks to be really hard to draw. I'm never quite satisfied with the texture or tone. I drew these rock (boulders really) from our visit to Cannon Beach in Oregon. These are not actually new. I drew these before I decided to go back to college to get an art degree. I'm sure you can see why I needed more instruction. But before you think I'm being self-deprecating, I always think I need more instruction. There's very little in this world that I'm not interested in and want to learn about. I hope that I won't ever stop wanting to know more. I think that is one of my better assets.

Recently I convinced the homeschool group where I teach art to submit projects to the art contest at the state fair. I am pleased and more than just a little proud that every one of my students (4 students) won ribbons. Out of the 10 student projects submitted, they got 8 ribbons, 4 blue, 3 red and 1 white. I have no new drawings to post today. Today is dedicated to my students who have worked hard and reaped those rewards!
