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.

More from sketchbook.............I think #8
Well, I was not going to do anymore sketchbooks but find that I just enjoy doing them. They are not anything special. I am not trying for good artwork here. Just experiment, have fun and practice. I get my ideas from other blogs or artists, pictures I see, photos I take......just about anything that inspires me to pick up a pencil. Because they are not always original ideas of mine they are in the sketchbooks and not made into pictures or artwork. The above picture was modified from something I saw. The next is original. I will forget what is what over time.
I kind of like that one. The next is based on a Susan Branch picture. I love her work.
I tried some letters. I used to love manuscript writing. So.......I tried some decorated letters.
Anyway, I try to attempt different things in the different books but I do get repetitive sometimes. I do a lot of faces because I enjoy that but they are not portraits.
I like doing animals
Anyway. I guess until I have something better to show I will have to show excerpts from my sketchbooks
tantangles are fun.....I enjoy them sometimes
Well that's enough of that thank you very much, more than enough.
