I am working on putting together another coloring book--this one with horses, unicorns and even donkeys. This graphite drawing is of my dear Friend Cheryl. What an amazing young woman she is! This is just the first rough rendition...
Above is the picture I loved so much--it's just perfect, isn't it?
I hope you are all okay. Have a lovely weekend and Happy Paint Party Friday.
Here is another of my little fairy drawings. This one is in honor of my sweet Grandfather, who taught me everything I know about drawing. He also had an incredible imagination. He saw pansy faces--like colorful little lions. He taught me how to see people and animals in both clouds and trees... I miss him so much.
Here is the second of several I submitted for the author's perusal. I have a lot more detail in what he's looking for now. This is so exciting. I've been working hard on this--not much else to do that's for sure!
A midget who told me, when I was depressed about people making fun of me because we had no money and no new clothes and I was wearing everything second handed. He told me, "You are the only one in the world, make the most of it."

FILLS MY EYES...
When I see something unexpected, unusual, or beautiful, my focus suddenly sharpens and intensifies. The sensation tickles! That's when I say something "fills my eyes." It is the greatest compliment I can give.
My Camera and Me
I carry my camera everywhere I go. Here you see one of my Cloud Paintings. I find unusual shapes, faces, animals in just about everything, especially clouds. Often I am able to enhance or "paint" my photos so others can see what my imagination has revealed.
What an honor to be a featured artist for this wonderful webpage!
A Fairytale Mind
This is a link to my favorite book reviewer. Rena Lanyon gives a well-written review from a youthful perspective.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I have not a single bit of talent left, and could say, "I used everything you gave me Lord." -- Darlene Pringle, Artist
"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass....it's about learning how to dance in the rain."
Life should be measured not by the number of years, but the love shared, the memories made, the joy given, the blessings received.
Old Woman Trees
The pine needles click…Click… Knitting stray wisps of wind
Into scarves of song.
