This is the latest pencil work that I've done. Since I don't travel much I use Wet Canvas site for inspiration. Great photos sent in by people and copyright free for artists to do 'their thing" . So I did mine with pencil, even though this was a very colorful photo I felt that need to do every detail and I'm pretty pleased with it.

How something this small can make me this happy! Oh yes, I wanted a Bijou Box for years, a teeny weeny palette box that you can take with you ... Even discounted they are about $75. then I found this one on Wet Paint for under $14-. There was a small problem in my order at first but the people there were great to deal with. Fast too.!! It's small , usable and has a thumb ring, baked enamel.. and it's adorable. !!. I'll be filling it with wonderful color . What more could you ask for????

For this one my attempts at 'loose' went out the window. But I like it anyway. I have African Violets on my window and did this from one of them. The weather here (Florida) today is just awful.. Dreary, rainy, and just plain miserable. These violets are the only thing that has any color and lifted my spirits a little.

I've been working on a series of scenes from Italy the birthplace of my grandparents. Buildings and landscapes are not my usual faire but I'm enjoying trying. Not easy for me as I literally can't draw a straight line. Wiggly or curves ones are fine, just not --- STRAIGHT---- ones. Thats very visible in these shutters!

I know your saying "what's she doing painting Pumpkins! " Well, I took this phtoto in a little town I lived in called Lake Alfred. (Fl) and I don't live far from there now. Every fall they would do this to sell pumpkins. I loved that big old house. Pumpkin time, Spring time, anytime . I'ts a very small painting. 4" x 6. "
