It was just so "brown" .....

A brand new Nine West bag from my favorite resale store, on sale for $2.  and it was lovely, but just so "brown".  I took advantage of the smooth outer pocket and this is my brand new bag !!!!

" The Inkwell Family Collection"

With inspiration from a fabulous artist named Carla Sonheim, I have done some quick sketches, using ink, a very old brush and a Micron pen. These are in my 6X9 sketchbook. I love the looseness of the figures, and the simple marks that bring personality to them. Thanks Carla!

A salute to Tybee Island Georgia, a magical place.  (also, every denim jacket needs some paint)

" Hope"

This piece is a study in several things.  First, a lesson for me in using more neutrals and fewer bright colors.  I think that was a success. Second, this was a study in multiple mediums.  This work includes acrylics, graphite, and oil pastels.  Great fun working this way!

" Winter Comes"

In an effort to continue creating, without buying additional materials, I am on a mission to re-work some of my older pieces that I find boring, or incomplete or just plain wrong.  Below I will show you the before image and then the, I think, new and improved piece.  I have promised myself to include a small part of the original painting in the final rendition.  Can you see it?
