EDM Challenge #63: An Urban Nature Walk

This week we are staying at our daughter's apartment with our 2 year old and 1 year old grandchildren while they are out of town.  Even though we could have gone on a nature walk in Riverside Park, we somehow only managed to walk around several blocks in the neighborhood before naptime.  We did find lots of stuff: a dried seed pod, green flower petals on a branch that fell from a tree, several peanuts that were left for the squirrels under a bench. a small pebble that my grandson loved, a dried piece of tree branch left over from autumn, two pigeon feathers, and the ubiquitous yellow caution tape that is around every sidewalk project in New York City.  We had so much fun on our outing that I wanted this to be my EDM Challenge #63.


Great drawing, story and I'm sure a great time had by all!

GORGEOUS, Shirley!! And to do all this with a 2 and 1 year old!!! SUPER WOMAN, too! LOVE THESE!

Your nature walk sketches are wonderful!!

I love what you found on your Urban Nature Walk!! How fun!! and how nice to share it with the grands. That sounds just perfect to me! I really like your twist on this and the drawing is a nice momento.

I love the juxtaposition of the yellow tape with the pieces of natural detritus. It places the sketch into context which gives it an extra dimension.

Love the juxtaposition of the caution sign with the found objects. Really nice sketch.

Great drawing! I love the fact that you were with your grandchildren, too -- that makes it even more special!

Wonderful drawing! Thanks for taking us along on your fun little walk, Grandchildren are so much fun!
