Jen C & C's always welcome
Hi all, I promised myself I wouldn't do any more of these but since I do watch C Span, it's hard to not to express emotion on some of the anti society fools that try to eliminate laws that have helped this country since the days of FDR. this is on 11x14 140#cp using Shin Han Touch felt pens

Jen I pulled some pictures of folks dancing as well as motion ideas if you want them let me know.
Bonnie; No I just used colored pencil. I don't remember what brand I used for Hay Good lookin' but I did pull out a coloor of paper that matched the color of the Sorrel horse. If you open it close up you can see where I didn't add any color, just used the paper.
Fred: I watch C-Span as well especially during upcoming major votes. I then look up the vote and find out WHO didn't vote. And who voted which way.... amazing.... I also pull up the bill and see what is buried in it that has nothing to do with what we think they are voting on. again amazing.... I wish we had line item veto....

Hi all, Fun with pastels 6x8 on mat board
Fred, this one reminds me of the terrible fires we had here this summer as well as the one at Yosemite.... but pretty colors
Fred, Love these colour. It says Fall so well. How do you like the mat board with your pastels?
Marsha, Please send pictures I will see what I can do. I was awake in the night thinking about it not sure I can do it justice. Will have a go but might have to bin it!
Mz. Hallmark (aka as Jen) Your cards are coming along great hope you sell a ton.
C and C always welcomed
Fred I think your blue people are starting their Halloween pranks a little early this year.
Well here is the latest Halloween painting. It has all the grandkids in costumes that they wore at some time except for baby who actually was a tiny skeleton last year but I thought a ghost was easier! He isn't quite that big yet either but he will be! It may need a bit of a revise when I am at the studio next. The Owl looks a bit odd but I am not much of a bird person. I guess this is more cartoony than accurate! Probably needs to watch his tail fethers don't catch fire!
about 8x9 pastel.
Fred looks like a fun time at Oktoberfest e you have any even though it is still Sept. Did you have any paintings in the exhibition ?
Marsha, I love your example of the horses done on colored paper and the way you integrated the paper with the drawing.
Fred, I have CNN (as opposed to C-SPAN) on during the day when I'm doing consulting work, and get so frustrated at what I see happening in Congress, so your paintings are dear to my heart.
Jen, this pastel of all of the grandchildren is so charming. I just love the little red shoes that are peeping out from under the ghost costume and all the other touches. This series is wonderful and is a perfect complement to your style.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Fred, you and Ruthie must have had such a good time at Ocktoberfest! I can just see the two of you as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Your pastel of the bear going home in the forest ablaze with autumn colors is a perfect piece for this time of year - beautiful, vibrant colors.
Marsha, I blew up your painting and yes I can see how you chose the colour of your paper to fit the painting. I will have to keep that in mind next time. You did such a good job with this one. Thanks so much for the information, sorry I was away and didn't respond right away. However while away I did purchase some additional colours of the coloured pencils so need to try them out now. Thank you for your help.
Jen, wonderful new painting of your grandchildren in the Halloween scene. All the different colours and costumes really looks like a Halloween night of tricking and treating. Also, great info about the cards. I will have to give it a try. I don't have the full photo shop but have a limited one and will see if I can figure it out. It would be good to have some cards made up for events as you mentioned. I appreciate your helpful instructions.
Fred, I see you attended Octoberfest at the same time as ours was held and the art gallery looks very nice. Your new fun pastel painting has wonderful fall colours. Our leaves have hardly started to change yet, it seems to be very late this year, maybe because we have had so much rain this year although I thought it was supposed to be due to the daylight hours.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Hi all, Now back to the Saturn moon Europa, Bennie and Ruthie are unable to find life so far but they discover a cave with crude sculptures guarding the entrance. They assume that the sculptures were created by living intelligent beings and prepare to enter the brightly illuminated cave. 11x14 Mixed
Fred, this is wonderful. Beautiful terrain, and a very dramatic brilliantly-lit cave entrance backlighting Bennie and Ruthie. Best of all, it's another mystery that has us on the edge of our seats.
