Knotted Shawl

Knotted Shawl is a large colored pencil drawing.  Someone gave me the shawl and I happened to have an old dress form.  I draped the shawl on the form and knotted it.  This drawing took a while to do but I loved doing it..  Drawing is very meditative, meditation keeps you young and far more relaxed.  I used Prismacolor pencils for most of my colored pencil drawings.

Paul's Red Sneakers on Crayola Tin

I started this drawing about 5 or 6 years ago.  I would take it out and look at it and put it away.   Last year I started doing small colored pencils drawings and took this pencil drawing out and started on it again.  I think it came out pretty good, a lot of people liked it.  I hung it for this years featured artist show.  After I finished with the show I went back to oils and I want to do my dog Missy with Acrylics. I do keep out of mischief but I will say teaching four classes is a bit much for me.  I love my artists, they are so wonderful but my energy level just peters out.

A Better Picture

This is a lot better.

Autumn Leaves

A colored pencil drawing that I did for the featured artist show at East Colony Fine Art gallery.  I showed with Joan Tierney and believe me she is a very very good artist.  She uses acrylic in a beautiful way.  I am sorry this photo is not a very good one but I am happy to be writing this blog.  I have been so troubled with my computer lately and Marie came over to help me and i think I've got it.  We hope.

Sunflowers are my favorites, and this is the time they are all blossoming.

Doll and Music

Sorry for all this.This photo is not very good but the colored pencil drawing is.  I am having a real hard time to get my photos.  Since now that the blog information has so changed I am having a wicked time downloading my newer photos.  When the blog had one word browse  I could just upload what I wanted but not now.  I am very frustrated.
Enough complaining.  I have been drawing lots more than painting.  I am really loving going back to my drawing.  I have at least four new CP drawings to share with you when I learn how to download them.
Be patient with me.  I will figure it out.

Hi Everyone, Sorry I am so behind.  Here is a painting of Eggplants that I really had fun painting.  In fact I have done two of them and they both sold.  My opening at East Colony Fine Art on Friday night went really well.  My partner Joan  and I made a great duo.  I am a little behind as I would like to upload the drawings I did for the show but can't seem to do it.  I showed all colored pencils and I sure would like to show you.  Till then, have a wonderful weekend.
