I am a painter working in pastels, with some oils, and acrylics. I sketch in pen and ink. As an artist my original paintings are influenced from living in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Bolivia, Peru and Chile, and travels throughout much of Canada and all our fifty States.
This is my spot for posting paintings and sketches, to muse mostly about art, life and a little about UT Baseball.
Popcorn kernel was on the Hunting list. Mary gave us some pop corn containers and that seemed fun to sketch as they are red and white. I used Micron 02 and Zig Millennium for the color. Freehand and at home. Sometimes I should do a pencil under drawing. Just not my style day before yesterday. (the container is plastic)
Number 1, pop corn, Number 2, tea strainer and Number 3, potato peeler
Bluebonnets are in bloom. A few not so good photos. I should slow down and focus, just like my sketching.
First the little ones by our mailbox. There are only about 8 little stems this year. Something is eating the leaves so not much growth. Drat!
This one looks pretty good.
These are by Highway 71 with a bunch of Indian Paintbrush mixed in.
And the pollen from the Loblolly Pines has arrived. Covers everything and comes through the screen as you see on this glass table. So when the weather is the nicest, we have to keep the doors and windows closed or this would be all over the house. This is about one days worth collection. The good thing is that people don't seem to be allergic. It will last about a month.
We are going by Jennie's and Brandon's later. She said we are welcome to come, just bring our own toilet paper! And we should sit 6 feet apart. That girl!

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los Niños. (Link on sidebar)
