The other day, in an effort to get out and moving more, I spent my lunch break in the arboretum. During the hot weather I had a nice walk shaded under the big trees. On my way back to the care I passed some flower beds with these big pick echinacea blooms and the big butterfly doing his business. It was quite windy, as you may see on the video that I took. All stills and video were taken with and edited on my iPhone.

It was a wonderful way to spend the lunch break.

The past week was pretty much a blur of work,drawing, sketch month end, travel to Toronto, delayed flights, traffic jams and rushed dinners. In between I found time for a quick sketch of… Arnie. Hahaha – I know, right?! What the … Well, we were watching an anime and a new character appeared, all beefed up and he reminded us of Arnie.

I sketch a lot after watching something adn just before going to bed, so with Arnie still fresh on my mind I googled an image of him in a body builder pose – et voila!

Happy weekend and cheers,
