Something New

I returned from Santa Fe and Georgia O'Keeffe country about a month ago. The landscape is what impressed me the most, together with the solitude and air like velvet, it's a place after my own heart.
My mind is filled with images from the journey and I have started getting a few strokes on canvas.

It's a mixed media piece in progress of New Mexico impressions.

More Mandalas...

Still working on Mandalas. This is the latest WIP.

An Older WIP

It's quite large for colored pencil and I got burned out on it a while back. Yesterday I pulled it out and I am ready to work on it some more. Maybe this time I get it finished.

The title I am not complete sure about, leaning toward "The Way to My Heart". About 20x26 Canson Mi-Tientes paper and colored pencils.

Is anybody else having a problem with the wood of the colored pencil splitting? See image below.

I also have found specs of blue in a red pencil and specks of red in a yellow one. What is happening to the quality of Prismacolors? 

Current Work in Progress

Irises are some of my favorite flowers in the garden. Sadly I don't have a green thumb at all and so these pictures I took at a friends house. It's an 8x10 on Stonehenge paper.

Time flies when you are having fun....
