Pastels and Pencils: Log Cabin, Duck Pond and Mountains

I thought about Bob Ross paintings in doing my art this week.  However, I used Pastels and Prismacolor Pencils instead of Oils.  This was fun to try through a different medium.

Thank you Kristen and Eva for the opportunity to show and tell our art work on Paint Party Friday. A fantastic place to see different artists, tools, paints and how they accomplish so much.

I've been missing a couple of weeks. Busy with my writing and photography.

Puffins are on the west coast (Oregon) and the east coast (Maine). Prismacolor pencil, Pen, gel pen and Pastels.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for the wonderful fun times at Paint Party Friday for so many artists.

I have not seen a Puffin in person yet. But I love the little darlings.

These past few years, the population of Atlantic puffins has continued decreasing, reaching dramatic cotes (more than 30% of them have disappeared).  Scary. . I would hate to lose them.

Cowboy checking out his Bull

This is my new ACEO card.
PBR finals are all week ending Sunday afternoon on CBS-Sports.  The cowboys are riding and the bulls are rank.  He has hat, chaps, vest, shirt, jeans and boots.

Pastels, Prismacolor pencils and gel pens. This has been a fun genre for me. I enjoy watching the cowboys ride that 8 seconds. The bulls are gorgeous and they know what to do. Pretty smart.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a wonderful place to be part of all the creativity and artists each Paint Party Friday.

I would love to have celebrated my birthday in Las Vegas for the PBR party. Check the schedule for the rest of the week if you are interested.

Be the one that leaves the lasting impression. ~ seeingstars

Bull-Rider with a Gold Buckle

I watch a lot of bull-riding on PBR, Championship Bull Riding and RODEO. The fellas are pretty young, very talented, having fun, and winning Gold Buckles. The PBR wraps up 2015 next weekend. Usually CBSSports carries both the bull-riding and Rodeo.

I used Prismacolor and Watercolor pencils.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for Paint Party Friday every week where we can show off our creativity and help others by visiting and learning from the best. Be sure to visit the artists.

I am still feeling the effects of the cold. I will try to visit and comment. I appreciate all the comments that I receive. It keeps the joints oiled and the head in 'creativity' mode. Thank you.

#23 Wish/Wishful

#23 for September is Wish/Wishful.  As you all know, I am still looking for my yellow cottage. So that I can have a garden of veggies, herbs and flower. The cottage will be by the water and as you can see there are birds everywhere.  The picture at the bottom was clipped from an old calendar.

I used watercolor pencil, Pitt pens, and pan pastels.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a place to play.. .. Paint Party Friday.  There are so many fine, creative artists to see at this website.

September Prompt: 20 Tiffany Glass

Tiffany was a doggie we once had. She looked like a Brittany Spaniol.  She went over Rainbow Bridge.  I have depicted #20. . .Tiffany was her name and the glass is a sheet of ice (winter) when she left us.

I used Pastels and Prismacolor pencils.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for Paint Party Friday. A place where artists can create and share each week. Be sure to visit all the wonderful artists.
