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.

Problem!

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....

Mandala - WIP



I am fascinated with Mandalas. Not only do I enjoy looking at them (google Mandalas and you will see what I mean), but also creating a mandala seems to be a spiritual process.  This one is 4" x 4" and will be mounted on cradle board when finished. It's ink and colored pencils on Stonehenge paper.

Update on the dragons...

Here is a very depressed dragon. I am finally working on it again, but my mind keeps giving me different endings to this tale.

I might have decided on a title though:
"DRAGON PRESS"


ACEO anyone?

I am also working on other things - what I call 'high intensity' trading cards, but because of the work involved these are really ACEO's  (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) and will be available for sale. An ACEO follows the same size guidelines as an ATC, 2.5x3.5 inches.


Strike when the Muse is hot!

I have been busy over the Christmas holidays. Actually, my holidays are now a semi retirement. I managed to take extra time over Christmas/New Years and I am having so much time playing with my inner child (and Nissy, my muse and studio dragon), that I sometimes get the desire not to go back to work at all. But I will return because I love my job and it gets me out of the house :)

I have been playing with ATC cards and got quite a few new ones. They are so handy when you want to try new paper, new pens and pencils, or just to play with ideas. If you are interested in trading, please send me a message or email me, I would be happy to trade ATC's all over the world.
