Drawing at Maplewood farm-





































After drawing at the pond (I haven't finished there), I had a longing for more drawing of animals, and took my pencils, plus camera, to Maplewood farm, a small model farm for kids (and adult kids) to visit . I have to say, I feel revived. Why do we stop doing the things we love because we 'must' this, and we 'must' that? bother! I think I take myself too seriously, and that is the root of many ills. I just want to have a blast painting and drawing. Did I say that?
Yes. And throw in some garlicky tzatziki for good measure.( Do you add vinegar to your tzatziki? It's just not quite there without it...)

I love your works, you know. and i don't know what tzatziki is so i will google now!
