Nice work everyone. Sorry I have not been around but just pig sick of being housebound. Just as I thought I would be able to get to the studio today it snowed again!! I have spent a fortune in Kindle books to escape it all!! It might be spring before I get back into the swing again!! Have fun.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Shameer great job with watercolor. Your landscape has wonderful colors. The town and castle has wonderful detail.
Joyce fun sketches painting. I like all three.
Bonnie beautiful watercolor of your Granddaughter and garden. Great job on the flowers foliage and your granddaughter.
Susan your pool room is great. I don't see a problem with your lines. I love to swim it looks like a great place to be.
C&Cs always welcome
Jen thanks for stopping in. Hope you can get to the studio soon.
Karen, thank you. I love your keyboard. VERY good detail.
Catching up again!
Claudia, what an array of wonderful photos. I like your encaustics & really love the coloured pencil carnival character.
Sarah: beautiful watercolour rose.
Charlie: the bus and truck are great,
Kim T: what a beautiful painting - "Friends Recalling" - such detail.
Joyce: lovely memories captured in your three sketches.
Bonnie: this a lovely painting of your grand daughter in your garden - the colours are beautiful.

Finished this picture - it is coloured pencil, but didn't photograph or scan very well. This is the scan. (24cm x 15cm).
Comments & critique will always be welcome & appreciated!
Gerri, my canyon isn't a glassier it all rocks just like the grand canyon.
All C & C's always welcome
Sorry Joyce I just jumped to conclusion.
C and C always welcomed
Charlie glad to see you back. Good job on the La Sal and the buss. Didn't you post the truck once before?
Claudia I love the texture and composition of your encaustic. He kind of looks like he has on chain male. Very medieval looking evan though it is a person with a mask in a parade. I like it.
Susan for a person that can't do water you sure did a fine job here. I was going to ask you if this the pool room where is the pool table but that would be crass. Love your WC.
Sonia nice little drawing of the pair of pears. It is well drawn but I think if the color was a little more intense you would like it better.
Thank you, Karen for your nice words. Our winter got
scared away. It feels like spring with lots of wind.
Karen you piano is looking perfect. This is a good
start. I noticed, you changed the sheet music. Sometimes it's good to take a
break from a painting and start fresh. I'm looking forward to see the city and
this piano piece finished.
Jen, I hope, even if the weather stops you from going
to your studio, you have time to do some sketches at home. It's always nice to
see your work. Even if I said that reading a good book makes you feel home and
it's probably very relaxing, but maybe you will also get inspired by your books
and sketch something out.
Thank you, Geri and Sonia for commenting on my work.
Sonia, I know the problem with scanning and
photographing, sometimes it doesn't bring out colors right. You put very nice
shading on the pear and apple.
I love the reflex ion on the counter
C&C always welcome
Thank you, Asusanrae, Karen, Sonia and Claudia for your kind comments on my garden painting.
Jen, nice to hear from you. Your Kobo will be like my Blackberry tablet and is worth about 100 times what we paid for them with the purchased library. I always download a book when I have something to do that will leave me waiting a long time, then I'm tied up reading it after. I do love them though. Have a nice break.
Asusanrae, I am so envious of your pool room, it looks spectacular. I love the deep blue and it must look great in the sunsets. Nice work on the pots and plants and the reflections in the water. Lovely.
Karen, your piano with the sheet music and flowers is coming along beautifully. I like the song you picked, very fitting. The keys and music are so very well done. I don't know how you got all the fine detail with the notes on the sheet music. I can't wait to see the flowers completed.
Sonia, nice work on the pear still life. I like all the shapes created between the apple and pear and their shadows on the table.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Thank you Bonnie, Claudia and Charlie. I have been wanting to try acrylic for a while. Thirty years ago on Valentines day I married my best friend. My husband a musician sang to me My Funny valentine at our reception. The piano and music had a special meaning for me but...how to paint all those little lines and notes. Solution buy a few colors of acrylic...a few brushes...and paste the printed music to the board. Had to overcome some obstacles along the way but I'm happy with the result. Acrylic and paper on 8x10 canvas board.
Not sure why pic didn't post.
