Whales and Chickens

A friend asked me to make her a sea creature piece. I've never drawn or painted any before, unless you count the primitive fish drawings I always did with my kids in church to keep them quiet. I drew, they colored them. So my friend asked me to draw something sea worthy, I can't resist a good challenge. What's the worst that could happen? I throw a piece of paper away, right?

Well now I'm stuck on whales. I thought about doing a puffer fish or a jellyfish or ever a swordfish. But nope. Only whales have been swimming by. I'm also not content to do them all in original colors. Grey can be so boring! So some are and some aren't.

I wonder what my new drawing obsession should be?! I'm thinking chickens! I've been following this guy on Facebook that does daily Rooster drawings. It makes me want to go out and sketch our chickens. In case you didn't know, we have 6 chickens. We picked them up as one day olds the end of May. And they're right on cue to lay their first eggs around my birthday, October 6th! I can't wait! I'm a bit like a momma hen, very eager for my chickies to start earning their keep!

What would be interesting to you to hang in your house? Is it flowers, houses, dogs, birds, what? I'm curious what people collect. I have a few rooster things in my kitchen but I'm determined to not call it a collection because then people will only give you that collection as gifts! Ha I have enough.

Have a whale of a day! Cluck cluck!
