I love Fuchsias. When I first saw my dream house, they were hanging on the front porch. Alas, in the busy summer months, I often forget to water plants hanging out front--so I put up fake ones which often fool my little hummer friends.

I have been down with a bad head cold--fever, aches, stuffy nose, plugged ears--but I'm better this morning. All I've been able to do these past three days is sleep and sit--and draw. This Fuchsia girl is one of two pen and inks I started. Enjoy. When I get 'em done, they'll be quite colorful.

It sounds like you have had the same thing I had Beth! I completely lost my voice for a couple of days last week. I'm feeling better now, but my right ear is still hurting a bit. I hope you feel better soon! This drawing is lovely.

Beth! It is my very first time here at your blog. You are what a True Artist is defined the Very Great Way! This pen art is just amazing! And also, you gave me a new learning! Now I know that Fuchsias are actually Flowers. I've always thought their only this warm happy shade of Pink! Lovely!

I really hope you feel better now! And I also want to thank you for those kind and touching comment you left at my personal Blog.

God Bless You and More Power! Mabuhay from the Philippines :)

Hope you'll soon get to feel better!
Your drawing makes me think like Escher -do you know him! (he transforms in his drawings/paintings fishes into swans, etc.)
Looking forward to the finish of this beautiful lady:)

ah a lovely fuchia lady!
I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well, no fun at all. I am just getting over a cold and it has lasted much too long! May yours slid away swiftly!
