Heading to Chicago

I am off to see my darling grandchildren for the week-end and when I come back I am making a promise to myself to be more faithful in my postings. I can't really imagine that anyone would be interested in what I have to say, but hang in there with me, for it may get exciting.

Grapes and Crystal

This is my latest. The reference photo is from Wet Canvas.

I drew this for my dear friend, Sharon. She loves trilliums.

Lonely Tomato

Here is my rendition of another tutorial in Arlene's book. I am learning so much about color.

Back from vacation

Had a wonderful week in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Took along a tin of art supplies which held many of my favorite colored pencils. I was working on my second Travel Journal and it helped the plane rides go a little faster. When I arrived at our resort I was digging through my stuff to show the grandbabies the journal and it was no where to be found. I must have forgot to put it back in the backpack when landing in Tampa. So, needless to say, I was so sad. I hope whoever found it is having fun with it.

BIG SURPRISE: Youngest daughter of Judyvan became engaged to a wonderful man. He joined our family in Florida and surprised her with a diamond ring. So very romantic. Here are my two granddaughters having fun on the trip.

New book, New drawing

I bought this great CP book by Arlene Steinberg and plan to complete every lesson. Here is my first one. She is such a wonderful artist and her colors are amazing. My dream is to keep learning and find my own style and find my creativity. I do believe that there is more I am capable of, it is just such a slow process. I will ask the Universe to be patient with me until I find the artist within. By the way, I just love the book. The Artist's Way" by Julie Cameron. So inspiring.

Photoshop Fun

Some fun stuff I did in Photoshop. I took a wonderful online course through Artella. I haven't played with it for a while, but watch for more. I'm in the mood now.
