Lil' Dragon - Pyro Training - Day Five

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY USA!  Hope everyone is having great weather to celebrate this day of Independence!

We are just hanging around the ol' homestead.   I was able to spend a bit of time working on "Lil' Dragon, Pyro in Training".  Yes!  I was able to apply a base coat with watercolor paints to the body and the fire, and then I began work on the shadowing of the wood in the fire pit.  I also lightened up the sky a bit, to add more contrast, with a light grey colored pencil.  I am looking forward to working on the little guy some more tomorrow!

And Jim tried, in vain, to locate which circuit breaker has deadened all the electrical outlets on the north side of our home; the circuit box labels do not make much sense at all and after 2 days of trying to figure things out, Jim finally broke down and called an electrician who should be here next Tuesday.

As an alternative project, Jim is now working on putting together our new Gorilla Garden Dump Cart!
It should make yard work much easier than trying to drag stuff around in a recycling tub!

Best wishes for wonderful 4th of July celebrations all across this great nation!

Take care and be happy,
Karen Anne


  1. Jim got the Gorilla Garden Dump Cart put together and it is awesome! Tomorrow I am going to try it out with some limited yard work ...

  2. I hope you love your cart as much as we love ours. Lots of practical ways to use it and then there are the fun ones too.
    I'm just in love with the dragonettes. They are simply yummy. I love the colors you have chosen and the sparkle that this one has about it's cute little personage, or dragonettteage. Now I know that's not a word but it is to say he has personality plus.
    Hope your 4th was a super one. xoxo Oma Linda
