Decided that Celebration is the name for this wall hanging. I've used some hand dyed fabrics as well as commercial material. There is machine and hand quilting and sewn bead work. Although this is certainly not a drawing, the lessons learned by drawing and painting are applied to this medium.

It was fun watching this piece unfold. Oh yes, I added a multi colored yarn.
                                                         There was joy in the making.

LEARNING mandala

Wow! I have so much to learn. I wanted to do a pastel piece and play with the french curves and circles templates. I did it, but there is just too much going on for my liking. To me a piece works best if there is a place to rest your eyes and it just doesn't happen here. There should be peace, unity and calm for my liking. Thus: a learning mandala.

Micron pens, Inkstense and colored pencils, patience!

I'm on a roll

Oh my, another mandala completed. Since I'm fighting a rash caused by a run in with poison ivy, I have to remain quiet and cool. Oh darn, an excuse to sit and draw. :)

Done with Micron pens, a Sharpie and Inkstense pencils.

Cover Page

This is the first page of my new 9x12 sketchbook. Yes, it wasn't a quick sketch, but I certainly enjoyed the process. Finished it as I was watching the women win the World Cup. Congrats to them!!

Micron and intense pencils were the tools of choice.
