Sunglasses

From a selfie my daughter sent while at the beach. I find the more I draw the better DUH! Trying to do something at least.

I totally stole this from a painting at my cousin’s house. All is fair in art.

Chiara, the dog next door. I’ve been keeping an eye out for her while some of the family is away.

Drawing of the mehndi I had on my arm. I kind of liked it. I understand tattoos a little better. Here’s Muffy’s design:

Good night!

7/17/18 summer is flying

I had a chance to start a new sketchbook. I drew one of the pieces from my cousin’s collection.

Some kind of cute spider that my friend’s son found in the woods.

My friend Kathe gave me this snakeskin. It is complete i.e not just a piece of it. She saw the snake eating a fish and a minute later there was just this skin.

Me up at Lake Hopatcong. Cheers!

Sketch

A sketch from a Facebook photo my cousin posted of him and his family.

I intend to paint it in but can’t find my brushes. Things are a bit disorganized here but maybe some progress.

I better not post the photo without my cousin’s permission.

Buddy breathing

I was discussing swimming pools and memories with our friend Claudia McGill and remembered when my Dad used to sit at the bottom of the pool with his scuba tank. All the kids would dive down and he’d hand them the breathing thing; we would hang out down there and take turns buddy breathing. I hadn’t thought of this in a long time. This is just a prelimary sketch and I’m going to paint it.  Claudia said early memories are the strongest. I’m going to have to think of more memories that I can translate into visual ones.  Maybe a series?

Two drawings

I admit I had Draw a Bird day in mind. I just didn’t get around to it. I intend to draw a crow (one flew very close over my head yesterday). The featured image is a blot painting. I cut it out of the sketchbook and mounted it with an Easter egg colored background. 

I tried a little painting of the dumpster with flowers in it. The old blooms and satin ribbons had such a sad look. 

Off to draw a crow now. 

Landscape on black paper

With a shout out to Jeandrawingaday who often plays with lines and marks on paper. 

Portrait (not of self)

My husband paused “Sixty Minutes” last night and I did a sketch of the guest. Can you tell who it is?

Saint Catherine 

An image I got on the Internet a while ago and drew in pencil in my sketchbook. It seemed wrong to not give her any color (those rosy cheeks and blonde curls). 

The portrait was by Luini (never heard of him). Here was the drawing I did in pencil. It needed color, right?

Doodle with gear

I’m working on a larger piece but did this one at the same time. 

I guess you could see a face in this one. Here’s a stage before finishing with more black. 

Candy dish with African violet

I guess this could be considered an entry to Charlie’s food fest over at #doodlewash. I have this candy dish on the counter at work and the patients love it. They are Sunkist Fruit Gems.

Here’s a view of a Sunkist Fruit Gem and the candy bowl. A fine weekend to all!
