Sketches

Set up in a workshop
Done on both pages
Old Truck
Cotton

I still love to sketch. Sketchbooks are still one of my very favorites,
and try to keep my sketchbook near. I have a small case that has a place for my sketch book, and pencils, and pens along with a small watercolor palette.
I normally draw with a pencil then go over it with ink.
Some say you should draw with the pen, but still prefer my trusty pencil! (and eraser) Most of the time, I go back and put color on them.
I just went to the high school last week, and talked with the art class about sketch books. They just started theirs. It was fun to see what they were doing, plus I saw some of their work, and
they were all doing great.
I just got a couple of new fountain pens to draw with, NOW to just use them!

The Triplets


The Triplets
12x12 stretched canvas
Torn Paper Collage

I am still doing cupcakes for the series, and I have a funny story about this piece. Before I did it, I drew it off, and named it, 'The Triplets'. I thought since all the other cupcakes were colorful and different I would make these 3 all the same. I had just made a batch and they were all the same, so I thought . why not have one alike. So, when I got through, I took a picture of it, and put it on the computer, and ask Ken if he would go look and see what he thought. I had not mentioned any names. He was looking and said.."What is this? Triplets?" I thought well, I at least got my message across! (For some reason they remind of Coke cans!)
