quick draw and something for AJJ


Hows things with you? We are having a mini heat-wave here and supposedly today is going to be the hottest day of year so far. So I am going to find a shady spot and spend the afternoon where it hopefully will be cooler than being indoors.
But before I go.. I'm linking a couple of pieces...

At Kim Dellows 'Show your face' the optional theme for August is a  quick draw .... so I used my egg timer for a 3 minute draw with a black pigment pen. 

And at AJJ this month I have been having fun with Yvonnes  'In my garden there is....' theme. 

A digital piece incorporating a photo from a couple years ago of some veg we grew..  there's nothing like the taste of freshly picked  home-grown vegetables.

This was what our weather station readings were on Saturday - the girl changes clothes depending on the weather. She had her bikini on - but today, right now its warmer at 33.7c so I wonder why she is  wearing shorts and a short sleeve top - perhaps she got sun burnt on Saturday.

  Wherever you are
I hope your day goes well.
Thanks for stopping by

  1. Fabulous sketches Gill and I do love your page for AJJ. Nothing tastes nicer than our own home grown produce. Your page has fantastic details and images. Hope you find a cool spot to sit in garden.

  2. Hi Gill, enjoy the heatwave as long s it lasts. Same here, very hot, so I'm trying to keep cool. Love the quick faces, they are quirky, and your journal page with the fresh, home-grown veggies is really something to smile about, they always taste so good. Thanks for making another nice page for AJJ, much appreciated! Stay cool, hugs, Valerie

  3. I love your quick faces and the beautiful page for AJJ ! Thank you Gill!
    Enjoy the heat - summer wasn't so good till now.
    We got heat again as well - hope it lasts some days longer than the last time it got hot.

  4. Loving all your artiness Gill, it certainly has been hot today but we can't complain as we don't have much Summer anyway!

  5. This is a fabulous page. I think those veggies will be delicious. I wish mine looked like that and were ready to pick now. Hugs-Erika

  6. Amazing quick draws-what an achievement.

    Love the page it has such care and feeling in it and also in the description of it.

    Hot but cloudy here so far--we were supposed to get downpours and thunder storms--now they are passing us by so it will our with the hose pipe this evening for sure.

    Love Chrissie xx

  7. What gorgeous veggies and that smiley face really makes me smile on your lovely page.
    Nothing beats homegrown and just picked veggies.
    I am waiting for "real" tomatoes to come into season here.
    I bet that little lady DID get sun burned in your heatwave Gill ;-)
    Heat plus high humidity do me in.
    We are due for another wave of UGH hot and humid where it will be feeling like 40.55C (our hottest of the summer hopefully for not too long).
    Your quick faces are really super too.
    Stay cool oxo

  8. Such a fun page, I love the smiling veggie face you have created and your drawing is wonderful. Wishing you a happy week! J :-)

  9. Love your quick faces! Your journal page is especially good because it has some of your own produce on it! Chrisx
