I am not about to give up on my dream of a yellow cottage by the water. The best part will be the puppy (I can't have where I am living now) and the garden (veggies and flowers) and my own place. What a beautiful world.
I used Prismacolor pencils to color this sketch.
Paint Party Friday has many different artists with great art. Enjoy seeing each and every one of them.
As a child, I was always drawing, mostly I drew animals. In Jr. High school I had a fantastic art teacher. A very multi-talented teacher. I was so lucky.
This is one of my first watercolor paintings. A painting that was done before I moved here over 25 years ago. I had forgotten about it. In clearing out my house, I have found a lot of things I had forgotten about. I began my art with an illustration class at the local university (ISU) and from there I began to use watercolor. Living in a twin cities and a 2 university town gave us a lot of class options.
I don't remember what I used for the subject, if it was real or a picture. I am having fun with the art and will do much more of it in the future. Pastels are a good medium that I enjoy also.
God, family, and friends are most important. Crocheting art dolls for my nursing home friends and oldsters are a new challenge that I look forward to. Everyone needs someone. . .I learned from my friend that having a doll friend is sometimes the only companion that can be related to especially in times of loneliness. I try to carry them with me so I can give them away as needed. I love to see their faces as they choose their doll.
