A Pencil Portrait

 I took this photo over 20 + years ago, and thought about doing it in pencil for almost that long.. Sometimes it takes that long to start something.. The original photo is on  this link in my Journey blog.
   The young man is my son. BJ

Strawberry Art Fest Time

'Little Sunrise Dancer'

'Sunset on My Shoulder'

These are my 2 entries for the show which starts the 28th of Feb. and run to March 10.
Both are 18x24" framed ...
 Both  were entered in the Proffessional category which is a little scarey. But I'll live through it.
I'll be hosting a day at the Art Show while it's open .
 Art is displayed in a seperate building.. Thank goodness we're not near the cows and critters. Yes, I'm kidding you.
The Plant City Strawberry Festival is well known throughout the country. Everything is strawberry.
There's entertainment mostly by country/western folks. This year Alan Jackson will be entertaining on one of the nights. 
Hmmm! hope I'm there THAT day.  LOL !  BJ  
p.s. I don't know how to reply to each of your comments individually on the comment page, but I see some of my faithful followers and thank you all for your kind words and encouragement. !

A Sketchbook of Mine

Front Cover

A few pages out of one of my sketchbooks.. .The cover of the book is one of those canvas things, so of course can't let that stay blank..
Done at different times and I think this was watercolor pencils.
Paper was terrible and you can see the buckling on some , but they were just pretty quick sketches or paintings so no matter.
Pretty sure I did this one when I was in the hospital last year.
What the heck was *I* so happy about !!!M
Hey, thanks for looking.. Working on a special pencil drawing right now so thought I'd post these..

I Remember

I'm working on a pencil piece, it's taking a lot of time.Well that's my excuse for not posting any new watercolors. So thought I'd put up a few old ones, and wow is this one old.. I can't believe 20 years has passed since I did that one.. Seems like yesterday. Every day seems like yesterday LOL !   

              Yeah, go ahead and march anyway.. BJ
