More graffiti drawings

So Facebook has this app called graffiti. A very simple drawing application where you have three brush controls. Once for color one for width and one for opacity and an undo button.
I 've been playing it and find it a fun quick way to sketch. It also has a fun feature where you can watch it "replay" the drawing process. I have been watching several of the top submissions on the public gallery. I learn quite a bit watching the process.
So the first one I finally completed my own sketch the other day and was thrilled that the next day I found it on Page 17 of the top graffiti's of the week. might not sound like much but considering there are about 160 pages of "top" graffiti. and 600 pages of the submitted stuff I'm thrilled mine is that close to the top of the heap.
this is tonight's quick sketch. I was going to add flowers to the hair and accidently submitted it oh well I might have just messed it up.

Snowed in

It's been a year since I actually published a post. I'm pretty much stuck at home snowed in until monday. We've moved back across country and we got few inches of snow today. Here that is enough to close down pretty much every things. the roads are pretty much all ice at least in the neighborhood. and people around here don't really know how to drive in snow.
So church has been canceled for tomorrow. and the weather won't get above freezing till monday.
I took the boys out in the snow a couple of times today. Ian made snow angels and wanted to make snow men but the snow wasn't the type that packed into snowballs well. It was the icy crunchy snow. Later I took both boys out for a walk down the street. We saw kids being pulled in by Golf cart with water ski ropes. Looked like fun. My drive way is like a min ice rink. Maybe tomorrow I'll pull out my ice skates and try it.
well, here's to blogging again. Maybe I'll get caught up on last years adventures in Monterey and the Move back east. may be or maybe I'll wait another year to write again. For now enjoy a couple of Sketches I did on graffti.
