Home Sweet Home
Crane, TX
These are sketches I have done this week. Is not always easy to sketch each day.
  We had a funeral this past week, and I got some photos there in that little town, (Crane, TX)
 then when we started home we came back through Seagraves, TX and took photos of old cars and pick-ups. These are sketches from the week. The white flower at the bottom was with the old cars. The very last one is from my branding day.  The black and white sketch was done with an Elegant Writer. When you put water on it, it turns really pretty colors. I also use and love the watercolor Visual Journal, along with a Tombow pen and watercolor.

Coffee Time

When Keri and I went to Canton, I took all kinds of photos, of old stuff sitting around. It was a blast!
I loved these old coffee pots.  I still remember my parents using one like these.  I painted the pots back in January, not having a clue what to do to the background. I put it up not even thinking about it until last night, when I went to bed, all of a sudden it came to me, to just put a bright color wall paper type back ground. It is so weird how that works. I was not even thinking about the painting, so when I got up this morning, I went out and looked through all my papers to see what kind of design I could come up with.  This bright color won out.
It is done on 300lb hot press paper with watercolor. it will be 18x24 framed.  12.5x16.5 image size.
