'Patchwork' designs loosely inspired for Native American Month, paperfolds and coloring, adult art class, 11/26/18
We used the folds as frameworks to create color patterns with. We were to do the diagonals sheet with two random Ely selected colors. The 8x8 we could use 3 colors, (random selection I think). Looks like some people created extra textures and patterns. I was just thinking in terms of straight colors. Half the fun is seeing how differently people hear or interpret things/words/messages....etc!

Little Phone screen does not register stylus strokes moving from out to in, but at least registers from in to out. I'm not used to writing or drawing that way. I expect to be able to make marks whichever way I move my tool/hand....all this stuff starts out so promising but then so quickly loses its capabilities. All flash in the pan and smoke n mirrors?!

Quoll - small (cat - ermine size?) carnivorous mostly nocturnal marsupial, endangered/threatened. Australia.

A group of MNOPQRS animals had me wondering about animals starting with N. I could only think of Nuthatch and that Nnnuu...? What was it called? ...(Nutria.) Found the Numbat for one. An Australian endangered species - looks a bit like a long squirrel or chipmunk. They are marsupial and it seems they eat only termites. I drew from a photo by Stewart MacDonald - http://www.stewartmacdonald.com.au/blog/2008/01/numbat-alert/

I think this may work into an A-Z animal series. In order to avoid overwhelm, I start with one set of four animals. The alphabet divided into four groups of six or more animals. Any letter animal in each group. Black crayon coloring pages, and the digital live/touch drawings, (which end up like neon signs).

(Note - text between slashes is dictation nonsense showing my repeated efforts to get dictation writing what I want!)
11:22 AM Weird handpie breakfast is cooking on the stove top.
The Dough - flour, cornmeal, rolled old-fashioned oats, /big in batter salt letter water Bacon powder/(dictation nonsense/
/Rolled out in two balls
Dividing to divide in to divide into balls for crying out loud/
Divide into two balls
Roll out one and form a little edge all around
Add the filling
Peas, corn, spinach, onions (all frozen veggies)
seasoned with: /so I thought so I sauce/
soy sauce, olive oil, lemon juice, cornmeal
Pat out the other ball of dough and cover the tart/hand pie. Crimp it closed. /Brakes and air holes./
Prick some air holes with a fork - you can make it into a pattern
This handpie is just a single serving I had put butter onto the tinfoil before spreading the bottom crust
I put this to cooking in the cast-iron frying pan placing the concoction in with the foil sheet that was on the tinfoil, into a commercial aluminum pie plate, tented with a piece of tinfoil and covered. This started cooking at 11:15 AM til
Excellent crust, browned underneath but no burn. Filling needed more soy sauce/salt and sour, lemon/vinegar, or mustard,
Go out to play.
Instead they fish,
With a bit of a swish,
A hope and a wish,
That the catch will not swim away!

Who runs with the hope,
And a wide wide scope
To seize every slope
With rarely a mope,
Best cover the land in one fell swope!

Three corn tortillas stacked and topped with butter pats, squiggles of /catch-up catch up, catch up, catchup and mustard, mustard and catch up, cats up and mustard, Hines catch up/ (dictation problems)
ketchup, Green cherry tomatoes cut, frozen chopped onions. Cooking on the cast iron frying pan covered with aluminum tent and cover. An experiment
Hope to take a picture of it when it finishes!
Roads are wet out but I don't think it's raining.
10:51 am- the breakfast dish finished cooking. I made a paper cut to take a picture of the finished dish. We'll see how it tastes!
So I stopped to take a pic of the crayon drawing, did a bit of adjusting and sent it off to convert to high contrast image, (good for coloring page). Now that feels satisfying!

Yesterday I fleetingly came across a suggestion of a squash and kale soup perhaps, what seemed like such an unlikely combination. It gave me the idea I could use my long overdue can of pumpkin to make a soup. I searched for that mention of the odd combination but could not find what I'd seen.
I would make a pumpkin soup though. Some canned pumpkin, cinnamon, chicken bouillon, Dijon mustard, bottled lemon juice, butter, frozen chopped onions, frozen sweet corn, ramen noodles, water. This would just make one large bowlful, (serving).
I got wondering about that spinach. Could that really be possible? I searched for pumpkin/squash spinach/kale recipes. There were loads of them. So I added frozen spinach AND some sugar. Let this simmer a bit - perhaps 5 minutes after having added the spinach.
What a delicious soup. I tried eating only half the bowl/serving but went past that. Then I did not get it into the fridge away from me in time. It was not long before I ate the rest of it!

a) crisscross perpendicular lines
b) crisscross diagonal lines
c) overlapping triangles and/or rectangles
d) crisscross arcs
Once these were drawn, one is to invent or find a creature in each set. Color as you go. Mark some eyes to help creaturize,
Then a page of Ken Hultgren art as reference for drawing deer. Hopefully you can see the connection between arc inventions and his drawings.
Bird Draw was a separate test for a group imessage. A bit more legible!

I may have figured out how to prevent that dumb fireball feature that keeps getting sent by accident. Choose a color and press until the color wheel shows. Pick a shade. Should put you right into drawing instead of a premature fireball send!

enough for the apples to really cook. The underside was ready to leave
the heat. And, it needed just a bit more cheese. This kind of apple is
wonderful cold. I think this needs a tarter apple - like a mac, macoun,
or cortland. But I was only wanting a substitute for tomato at the
moment. Dare I try a bit of salt on the apple, the half sandwich that is
Finger has so little control drawing on a tiny phone touch screen. Face
