75 Day Sketch Challenge: Days 20-21

I kind of went wild with daisies on Day 20's page. It was one of those summer mornings when I was awakened by the sun at around 5:00 am, so I figured I might as well get up and get to work. But, instead of working, I ended up sitting outside by the flower bed with a cup of coffee, listening to the tinkling of the fountain nearby, and sketching a huge mass of daisies.

They only bloom for about two weeks before they shrivel up in the heat of July, so it was nice to have a chance to capture them while they were fresh and pretty. Today they don't look that good. Too many 95 degree days lately.

For Day 21, I drew my breakfast. I'm hooked on Fage nonfat Greek yogurt with lots of fresh fruit and a spoonful of dark brown sugar. It's so rich and creamy, I almost feel guilty. Seems like it must be dessert!
