Well. . . sheesh. . . of all the things I thought I'd draw, I never ever thought I'd be drawing an outhouse in the back of beyond in the wilds of Australia!
I never!!! Well, I guess I will. . .  :2funny: :2funny:
 
As for good luck. . . .me thinks we are gonna need it! Buckets of it. . . luck that is!! :gl2: :gl2: :gl2: :gl2: :2funny: :yippee:
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

I haven't done anything in pencil in quite a while and gave this a try:

This is nice, rickety and countryish Mary Lou! Certainly doesn't look like you've been out of practice with drawing - well done! :clap: :clap: :clap: I think this is the outhouse behind our "Let's Draw" barn ;D

 :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:  I am SCREAMING with laughter at all of you ladies ... you are just so comical and I LOVE it.


 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Mary Lou, you did a fine job of the outhouse but then everything you do, you do well.  Congratulations.

Thank you so much Denise, Patricia and Val! Val,  I am  laughing, you are so funny.  :2funny: I just read one of your comments to someone about bushes and you said all you know is how to hide in them!  That was hysterical.... :2funny:
 
This was a rather "countryish" subject :tooth: ...

Terrific, Mary Lou. With some ink and a little watercolor it could be a perfect little Mary Lou special. Who needs Venetian courtyards and canal fronts when you've got outhouses right here at Paint Basket? Personally, I'm holdin' on to my drawers though, because Val's gonna blow the doors off this little gem.  :heeha:  Ummmm, Val? Do you think you could make it quick? :faint:
