Barn Window Art completed. . .

The Barn window . . .is completed. 
There is a horse inside.
I used Pastels and rubbed black pastel over a screen on the bottom window to look like screen. I also used Prismacolor pencils and pens.
Thank you so much for commenting. I appreciate everyone who visits. I have the new point and shoot camera now, but the Mac has been acting up. . . .I try to visit as many of you as I can because I enjoy all of you and I learn so much.

 Thank you Eva and Kristin for a remarkable learning experience and Artful website. . . Paint Party Friday.

Yellow Cottage. . .Rain Storm

I never give up. . .still looking for my Yellow Cottage. . .I finally finished the art project (it was a cactus) I started about 6 months ago.  I used Pastels, acrylic, pencils, gel pen and eraser in tedious places.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for Paint Party Friday. I am learning so much from the other artists and their art supplies, ideas, plus videos. Thank you for sharing your tips, tricks and how to use some of the many art supplies I don't know about.

I also want to thank you for visiting and leaving comments. It is so helpful and encouraging.

Barn and horses across from my backyard.  This 
horse is keeping me in his sights.
 Their pasture is just over my fence. I love that it is so close.
 The barn is also close to a house with a picket fence.
 The second pasture is on the other side of the barn from me.
 So beautiful in this neighborhood. . . .
 Lots of trees and the picket fence. . .
 Moon, clouds and trees.

When you know your worth, no one can make you feel worthless.

 I was sitting in my living and looked up and saw
this redbird on the vines. . .like living in a nature center.
