Welcome to Day 18 of Drawing Into Poems, my daily drawing/seeing/writing study into poetry. You can read more about this month-long project here on my April 1 post. Feel free to read the books with me, and pull out your own sketchbook and jewelry box full of metaphor too...
Day 18 - A Watering Can
Click to enlarge the drawing.
Students - Yesterday was a very sunny and warm day, and I knew that my drawing would have to be an outside drawing. I sat on our front porch and drew just part of a scene that also included a well pump and an orange and white cat named Firepaw. Watering cans fall into the category of things I like to have around, along with button jars, handmade dolls, granny square afghans, handmade journals, and...well...cats.
I am noticing that drawing a picture each day focuses my attention in one place, something I strive to do more regularly. Today I most like the note, "It is a teapot for flowers." Yesterday I drew a useful object, and I think I'll be doing this again.
This is Freya. She has four kittens:
Wilbur (orange), Tundra (grey), Otter (grey) and Lupine (black)
(She also has a pregnant sister.)
Want a kitten?
