Alright..here's the drawing/painting/sketch (not sure what I should call my Moleskine work) that I was holding up in my last post. It's the view out from the front door of the rental house we like to stay at in Normandy, France.

It's a lovely view to wake up to each day - no matter the weather. Excellent place to get away from it all. The hortensias (hydrangeas) are everywhere in bloom in the summer in France...beautiful.
And this is our favorite donkey in Normandy. "Desireé" is her name and she belongs to the owners of the Ferme aux Canards. That's my husband giving her apples ... everyday we gave her an apple. She is a "gourmand"... heh heh

I did many more sketches/drawings/watercolors in my Molekines, here and in the Limousin region - but sit tight, I still have to write those posts. I have to admit there are times when this blog feels like annoying homework to me...rofl.
