Well the time has come!!! I’m having my first solo show!!! I will be having my artwork on display at the Old Courthouse Gallery Opening night is Tomorrow, May.31st and I would love to see you there!! Read about the details here
Not sure if anyone is still even coming to this blog anymore….but shortly after my last post my blog was hacked into. My password was changed and they deleted a couple of my last blog posts….grrrrrrr!!!!! as well as added a few of their own ….but….I have now had this issue fixed. Yipeeeeee!!!!!! and I am very glad to be able to post again
Hubby brought it to my attention that my last post was a little…ahem ‘x rated’…I quickly went and took a look and my first reaction was ‘holy crap’ lol…sometimes I get so caught up in the actual drawing process, that I forget about the final drawing. Or maybe my mind is so sweet and pure that I just don’t think that way? Har har…
Just a little somethin’ something from my sketchbook…
I don’t know what it is about mushrooms they are so much fun to draw! Maybe because every time I see a mushroom I always think of fairies? They are magical to me, I just love them!
almost halfway done with this drawing. What was I thinking drawing so many mix tapes??? Here are the two I just finished…
And the ones I’ve already done to date…
Sitting in a tree…
Hope you all are doing well and having a good start to 2012!
Here is my progress so far on this guy. I’m really not sure if I’m liking the paint job on his back yet…I thought I would think on it a few days and maybe come back to it. I don’t want to even tell you how many times I have painted him already. Oh well, what can you do??
Today we remember those who fought for our freedom. Our(Canada’s) ten dollar bill has this wonderful poem on it. It was written by Lieutenant John McCrae. A Canadian soldier who fought in World War 1
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium
May we never forget.
I know, I know….it’s a little sad. One little leaf to show after being absent for how long?? Would it help if I told you that I’m starting to prepare for my upcoming show in June and that I am working on some rather large and time consuming projects? One is a sculpture which I’m not willing to share just yet because A- You will have no idea what it is at this point B- It actually looks rather creepy and C- I am a great big chicken.
The drawing below is 46×34″ which is HUGE in drawing land. HUGE.
I also did a mosaic of house numbers…sorry, you only get a peek!
I was rather not pleased to see the snow yesterday….soooooooo not cool. What was mother nature thinking?! Hahahaha…As you can tell I am NOT a lover of winter.
Anyways, I hope everyone is doing well these days and sorry I’ve been so scarce on here lately. It may be like that for a little while as I work on my larger projects. But I think you will really like them so please keep coming back to check up on me!!
