Well, I am having computer issues. It took ages to get on here to make a post. I will post a few of my latest from my art journal. Also a couple of old ones.
First a poppy done with acrylics on a slate.
Unfortunately I put it outside. The tile was the exact fit for a wrought iron table I had. It washed away over the course of the year. Bummer. I will do it again if I remember how.
The next one is Bijou from my journal
The next few are from my journal also. I am trying to "stay loose" but get a little more detail.
The cat is an old one, a drawing of a friends cat but with its eyes painted. I still like this one.
This is a picture I did many years ago. Its me with my first granddaughter Danielle I am nibbling on her ear. I must learn to not take a photo literally. It would have been better if I had not done that but it is what it is. Danielle is now 23 so you can tell how old the drawing is.
Back to the journal
Some are still simple. I sort of like it now............the simple drawing and painting.
I think I am getting the hang of it. I still prefer the detail though like my old ones of the poppy and cat. More to come but I am ending here while the computer is still intact.
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
