|Penny Planted Poppies|
5 x 7 inch papers, gel, acrylic, ink, oil pastel, colored pencil

I have been raking leaves. Actually what I mean to say is boy howdy, have I been raking leaves!
And I'm still not done. But that's boring. Who cares?
Here's my art. :)
6 x 8 inch papers, gel, acrylic, ink, colored pencil, oil pastel on cardboard
available on Etsy
I painted on another piece of cardboard (the painting above). Call me frugal.
|charcoal and graphite in a 4 x 6 inch sketchbook|
I did this sketch using one of the old photos gifted to me. It doesn't look anything like her, but that's not what I was trying to do. I just wanted to capture the essence of her, that's all. I really enjoy drawing portraits with charcoal, but it is so much easier in the 8 1/2 x 11 inch sketchbook I have. The thing is, I like the way drawings look in a small book. Well, I like the way art looks in a small book...period. That's why I always do those tiny sketchbook sweeties in the pocket sized moleskin. Which, by the way, I have not done for a while. It's because of all those darn leaves.
|The Arkansas River at Oak Park|
This is Riverside...a lovely area that I love taking walks in. The river is actually the Arkansas. It's pronounced "AR-KAN-SAS" in these parts. I used this wonderful photo editor called Snapseed on my iPhone. I love this program. It made those trees look painted I think.
Well I'm off to rake more leaves...I filled 22 bags so far. Yikes.
Thank you for visiting. I really love it when you do!
