Holly Hocks & Dolphins




This picture of the school of bottle nose dolphins was from the Mutual of Omaha 2003 calender.
Done in the Inktense watercolor pencils and WC paper.










Well... I tried to do some holly hocks and I'll be doing this again from the picture that I took of them! I know that The scan didn't do a good job. Derwent watercolor pencils and WC paper
I gave Lillian this picture of them they were from her front yard.

Fathers Day and Anniversary Card and Gift




Here they are!

Sunday kickin'

Yesterday was our 17th wedding anniversary we went to dinner at a local mexican restraunt very good food, and then watched two DVD's Rush Hour 3 and Ace of Hearts. Both were fun to watch. I made Davids' card (my own design) and he gave me a beautiful Hallmark card.. and also a beautiful Rooster Cookie canister (that matches other things that he's bought me for the kitchen decorations.)...

I also made his Fathers Day Card which I used a Design by Tami Mayberry from the CardMaker newsletter...that I subscribe to. CardMakerMagazine.com

Nature Trail at Roper Lake St. Park


This is the beggining of the Nature trail across from the Hot tub! It's already in the triple digit heat here in Southeastern Az. and the man made lake is a big draw...

Everyday in May


This is the First drawing for June 2. I decided to try to draw everyother day in June so it won't be so furious and I can possibly spend more time on a project and do a couple other types of things.

This is an African violet plant that survived out of four and it bloomed this year. W/C pencils in journal.














This next picture is of a scene from a calender picture from Kauai Island.
Derwent pencils in the journal.



I caught this picture of Casie at the Sink last Christmas and it was mostly in shadows...This is a different approach using watercolours and 140 lb. watercolor paper.


This is a Conche shell done with Watercolor pencil in my journal that I've come to find a real challenge in it's self to paint/draw in.
