My Memory of Spring in Northern California

Colored Pencil 9×12 on Stonehenge white.   this is a rendition of One of the things I used to love doing in Spring.   This is from my memory of living very close to  Mt Diablo,  the California poppies in the fields and huge Oak trees dotting the hills,  there was an abandoned house and we loved to hang out around it.  I always hung out with the boys and we put together our own kites we got from the dime store, put our 5 cent ball of string on sticks and away we would go on  our bikes to the old house and hill.  I'm not good with faces without seeing a picture.   This is my attempt at clouds as well.  ( on the middle right there was a small pond where we used to catch frogs and blow on cattails.(in the fall) )

About Marsha K

I'm in my 70's. I was a professional singer for years and now I produce big band jazz in Las Vegas Every Saturday. 

I am a self taught artist and have found a mental niche to take me away into place of color and imagination and calm.  I love to go into my memories and pull out a few moments of time when things were good  and happy, now with a brush or a pencil, I can draw myself into a world of color and lines.  I hope you enjoy my art,

I raised 5 daughters.  My husband and I moved here in 1994 and don't really like it here but can't afford to move.  We have a large collection of cactus and two fish ponds, two cats,two dogs, ONE bird.  A BIG backyard that  is full of flowers and all things green.... My husband plays stand up bass and is very good at Honey Do lists.   We are retired from the work force but still stay very involved with producing jazz and Big Band music. and playing and singing in our jazz group every Tuesday   We have some health issues and are working hard to overcome the problems they cause.  this year will be a good one for us.  [ip]
