Another progress picture...

There is something about the color red that intrigues me. Whenever I work with red I get really deep into the process and don't want to stop working...

"Waves pf Passion" - Tribute to Georgia O'Keeffe

20x26 Colored pencil and solvent on white Canson Mi Tientes Paper

I'm sitting with it for now... need some time to look at it to decide if it needs anything else. Any odd reflections stem from the bad lighting and even worse photography ;)

WIP - still!

I finally found my muse again! Things seemed to go in strange directions after I returned from Santa Fe. For one thing, my mind was so occupied with the things I experienced, I couldn't think of much else.

Then I decided to put two fingers of my right hand (drawing hand) at the wrong end of a submersible blender while my left thumb decided it needed to push the ON button. Well, that took a few stitches!

After a few more interruptions of my creative and happy lifestyle, I finally turned things around on Halloween night  under an almost full, but sadly invisible, Hunter's Moon. I hunted down my creative dragon. It's easy at a full moon, she sits and stares at it, forgetting everything else around her! ;)

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....
