Dragon Breath -Paint Party Friday

Years ago I discovered a picture of a cat with fire coming out if its mouth--I saw a dragon, hence the title "Dragon Breath."

I've been incredibly busy and continue to be so--I hope you don't mind my sharing this goofy drawing from long ago.

When you peruse this piece, I hope you laugh as much as I did, as I drew it!  Thank you for dropping by, your comments are such an encouragement.  Have a happy weekend, dear Friends, and Happy Paint Party Friday!

Tiger Burning Bright -Paint Party Friday

Good morning!  This sweet tiger is one of the two dozen or so baseball sized ACEO art cards I created over the past couple weeks.  I love tigers.  This one seems quite gentle.

Here is an acrylic I painted many years ago.  The painting is about three feet tall and hangs upstairs in the "art gallery." 

Have a happy weekend, sweet Friends.  Thank you for coming by--your comments put a lot of joy in my heart.  Happy Paint Party Friday!

Whiskers Akimbo -Paint Party Friday

I took some time aside and made two dozen of little ACEO cards.  This whimsical little fellow is my favorite.  For those of you who don't know, these tiny art pieces are the size of a baseball card.  They're a lot of fun to do.  It will be fun to add color to them.

I hope your week has gone well.  We are expecting rain by Wednesday, then back to higher temps next week.  It has been such a mild summer.  I've enjoyed the warmth and sunshine.

Thank you for dropping by, dear Friends.  Your comments always brighten my day. Have a lovely weekend and Happy Paint Party Friday.

She Loves Birds -Paint Party Friday

It has been an emotional, hectic week, so I'm posting one of my earlier pen and ink drawings.  Birds have always given me joy.  I love to heckle them with their own calls--it is so fun when they finally realize it is a human talking to them! 

My Daddy had the same gifting.  The birds would land on his shoulders waiting for the seed he would bring out to them.  The humming birds loved him too.  I'm sure they are all around him in heaven. 

Happy Paint Party Friday, sweet Friends--thank you SO much for dropping by.  Your comments are encouraging to my heart.  God bless you and have a GREAT weekend.

Apple Blossoms -Paint Party Friday

I did a lot of artwork this past week, as I waded through the emotions of losing one of our treasured volunteers.  This precious young man took his own life. 

I didn't have the heart to upload any of those pieces, so I've posted this drawing instead.

I love to make borders of twisted ribbon, flowers and tree branches.  This is a favorite pen and ink drawing of mine.  This one illustrates the detail which can be achieved by interlacing all those things.

Above you see my exquisite reference model,  Rena.  What a dear blessing she is to me.

Thank you for dropping by.  Your comments always brighten my day. Have a lovely week and Happy Paint Party Friday.
