Excuse



Illustration Friday has 'E' mailed me the challenge...

"E is for..." suggested by Duncan Lee.

Well...
E is for Excuse. An Excuse to look out the window.
Now here is Cookie Monster and Big Bird with your stock market tips of the day...

I like this! You've really captured that focused and attentive look dogs get when staring out at...whatever it is they're staring at. Is this your dog? You've made him look so muscular...really well done:>

Hiya Carla ! This is indeed my dog. Her name is Casey and she's a boxer. Boxers tend to be powerfully built and are guaranteed to give you a work-out when you walk them on a leash.

She leads and I get dragged. That must be what she's thinking when she looks out the window...
:-D

Casey is wonderful. She just makes you want to go to the window and look at whatever has her interest. Whatever it is..........it seems a bit elusive at the moment, but perhaps you'll tell us. Great image!

She's probably glaring at those chubby and slow moving squirrels that frequent the front yard.
That's why I make sure she's on a lease, Ginger...
:-D

i just came back steve! how lucky you are to have a boxer dog and vice versa for having someone like you who can draw him. casey is a he isn't it? i like how you made the line strokes that made him really look tough!

i just read your post-okay casey is a she-ohh that is why she is a bit shy to show herself to the guys outside....

What a nice doggie. I love it when dogs (cats in my case) stare at something endlessly that is totally invisible to us. Really nice drawing.

Great job capturing the posture. Are those subtle reflections on the window, os has the dog been pushing his nose against it? :-)

That's a great sketch. Wondeful job.

Thanx Teri C ! Imagination is a wonderful thing!

Casey is a very good girl, JoyEliz ! :-)

She does this so often that I just had to capture it on paper, ValGalArt.

I'm full of excuses, KaySusan...:-D

I don't know Isay, she's pretty strong !

They probably see more than we do, Janey. :-)

She luvs to go outside, VioletIsMyColor. Except when it's raining or freezing...:-D

The Elves were on vacation in the Bahamas, Anonymous. :-D

She has a very doleful expression whenever she wants something, MarjAnn. It's hard to ignore !

Casey makes friends quickly, Unknown. She gives sloppy puppy kisses ( yukk ! ).

You are right on both, Don. You can see a few trees and bushes as well as condensation from her nose!

Are those Chocolate Chip Cookies, Tony Laroca ? :-D

You are too kind, Tony ! :-)

Another wonderful drawing, Steve. Is this guy waiting in the window for you?

 
At 9:02 AM, Blogger Lily and Lucy White said...

E is for … escapades! Stop staring and go!
Great drawing. Lily.

well done Sreve! my dogs love to look out the window!

 
At 6:06 PM, Blogger steve said...

Thanx Ellen, appreciate the luv !

She can't stand seeing things going on outside when she isn't out there, Mick...:-)

She is capable of dragging the holder of her leash, Lily and Lucy White, Oof !

Aren't dogs just like people, Joe ! :-)
