The baby girl


In my series of imaginary family; I have added a sketch image of what my baby grand daughter will look like. This one was sketched in charcoal and given color with PRISMA color pencils.
She has eyes like her grandpa, hair like her father, beautiful facial features like her mother and her GRANDMA's wit and wild personality (that'll be me)!! I shall name her FAITH. I'm sure her parents will name her differently.

THIS is Mixed Media


Watercolor, collage, ink, acrylic.....truly MIXED Media

I DID IT !!!

I did it..I didit…TONIGHT I finally did it!
I don’t know why I was so scared. It’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever owned. To me from ME. I had not drove it in 12 months. It wasn’t gonna break. Although, I feared that my first time with it…I surely would break it and a wasted investment. But, my Janome was getting tired so I took out my Brother Embroidery machine out of it’s original box, brand spanking new and finally started using it!! I’m in love..once again. If sewing machines could hear….my Janome would get it’s feelings hurt so I made sure to put it away in my closet so it wouldn’t see me take out the Brother. I might never see my old Janome again. It’s not old. But this Brother sure has LOTS more stitches that I’ll probably will never use and can do tricks that my Janome will never do. Oh well. I had to move on. I can’t wait to download my own designs from my flash drive !! yeee haaa

My Twins


So, I decided to name my series of faces. Since I don't have granddaughters and I will someday ( God willing)... I decided to create drawings of what I would think my granddaughters will look like. In case I'm not around when that time comes, I will enjoy my drawings for now. Anyhow...my THREE sons are wayy too young to start a family. And when and if ever they get married and have children of their own. I wish them nothing but girls!! Hahhaaaa..... some of these drawings look like adult females. Therefore...those will signify my "daughters-in-law"...well...I hope.

Enjoy a picture of my twin grand daughters. Double trouble is what I hope for that young son of mnine that deserves all the pain and suffering (in a good way) he caused me...TIMES two...thus...double trouble... TWIN Girls.

Things happen for a reason


Lots of Color and TEXTURE.

At first...it seemed like this piece was missing something. So, after layers or color and texture; I had to put it aside for months it seems.

I finally stumbled upon it and butterflies came to my mind. Sooo...now it has butterflies and a beautiful piece written by Marilyn Monroe.

Now I feel releived when I see this canvas. It is one of my favorite pieces of Art and hanging at my office so I can look at it and remind myself....that things do happen ...for a reason.

Watercolor


Playing around with Watercolor. Tulips seem to be the easiest to draw. Of course, since this IS MY first attempt at watercolor and no formal training, my tulips will not look authentic. But, I do like how the painting looks after it dried completely.

I kinda like it.
