I'm slacking a little on my nature journal entries.... maybe because it's been too godforsaken hot outside to notice much in nature.  It's been a bad one here in TN.   So while puppes are only sort of "nature", my nature journal is a little more encompassing than just the traditional observational nature journal.  It's usually one picture to a page.  One of these days, I'm going to make a website where you can feel like you're turning the pages.  It's next to best, because I love this book.... it's got paper that feels almost like fabric (it doesn't warp with water media either, which is nice, but erasers and frisket are NOT ITS FRIENDS, either, which is a little intimidating). 

Anyway, this is the story of Eevee.  I named her that because we were out hunting Pokemon when a wild Eevee appeared, and she's the right color, and I have no idea what she's going to turn into.  That's a super nerdy Pokemon reference, I know.

I know this:  I want to draw/paint more dogs, and get better at it.  It's amazing how much life a shiny nose and eyes adds to a painting, though.

I work with a group called Friends of White County Animals, and they want me to write Eevee's happy story for the local newspaper.    

Happy tails to little Eevee, her fur-ever family, and to you!
