This is an untouched drawing of an eagle. Meaning I didn’t fix it up to look better with paint software.  However, it might have  been touched up with paint as I recall, the colors only saturated. I drew  this eagle about 2 weeks ago, actually for July 1 12 for Wendy Haven’s birthday package. I liked it. Originally it was suppose to be a hawk. I looked at a book of photographs of these hawks and eagles. Otherwise, how can I draw the birds so accurately?  If I took  a still photograph of a hawk or eagle, I would look at that picture to check for  accuracy.  SLR cameras with good lenses can take pictures like that. I don’t have one but someday I will get one.

The birthday for Wendy Havens was a good birthday and party.  People played guitar and sang songs.  The food was very good. I took some pictures but was not able to resize the large ones into smaller ones which I usually do.  So  I will do that when I can this month.

Since then biked to Surrey Bend Regional Park.  That was good too.  

Today it is gray and colder.  Maybe the clear blue sky will clear and it will be sunny?  It did turn out clearer and sunnier.


I drew this picture today. I can draw.  I wanted to draw this picture and put it up in my blog because it is the end of June.  M Jackson died June 25, 2009.  I will always remember Michael Jackson because I loved his music a lot.  I can dance to it: dance, dance, dance.  Just listened to Bad this morning.  

Drawing was hard to do because I didn’t have any still photo to go by. It’s how I usually draw him.  I look at the photo and check for accuracy.    

May have to buy a magazine or book of him in the future.  I read a book by his brother Jermaine Jackson. Good book.  Sifting through the books at the Central Library in down town Vancouver, I saw two more books about Michael Jackson. I wanted to check them out.  They’re heavy to carry around in back pack.  One was by a family in New York.  The father managed a fancy hotel in New York.  Whenever he was in New York, Michael J stayed at the hotel.  The book had pictures of MJ with young boys.  Family was Italian.  It showed MJ with the young boys as they grew into young men.  He liked the family a lot. He felt at home with them. 

There was another book. I read  a little of that.  I liked what little I read.  Will get the books authors and titles some time in the future and post.
