Ms. Witch and her cat posing on her broom for a picture

 As I was walking around the neighborhoods today, I saw that someone had put up their Halloween decorations.  So, that brought me to thinking. . .I love all the Halloween decor . . .I need to draw a picture. . . . And here she is.
Her night sky isn't light enough that you can't see the stars.  She decided to hold steady so we could catch  a good picture of her and Ms. Kitty.

I used graphite, Prismacolor pencil, pitt pen, acrylics and watercolor pencil.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for throwing a great party for creative artists to participate with each other. Paint Party Friday is the best.

New Journal page

We were asked to use real feathers or to draw them.  I had found 2 bird feathers and decided to draw my (still looking for) Yellow Cottage.  It will be at the end of my rainbow.  My love of birds is shown with the feathers.  All in all my pastel painting is my dream.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a great artists party every week. Paint Party Friday artists are creative, teach, show videos of their work.  Check them out.

Farm sketch and Doodles plus Crochet and young Dove.

 The house has a turret because my daughter keeps saying she wants a castle.  I sketched it all and then used soft pastels to make it colorful.

The Doodles were sketched while the TV was on.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for the wonderful Paint Party Friday each week. So many creative artists share their work, art supplies and their knowledge.  We all learn from each other in a creative environment.

I've also been crocheting huge flowers. I will use them as decor, either for pillows, clothes or put them together as a scarf, valance. . . 
 all occasions

When I arrived home, look what I found under the hedge.
Just a little one. .  .  very skittish.

Value your mistakes as a lesson.  If you’re not making mistakes, you’re not trying hard enough.

Who Took My Worm?

I decided to draw another bird.  He is totally graphite.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for providing a wonderful and creative outlet for artists where they can receive feedback, Paint Party Friday.  I love visiting the artists and seeing everything from mixed media, to water color and videos of learning.  A fun, exciting and creative place where people are humble, vibrant and teachers of the best kind. Be sure to visit all the artists.
