Improved mandala

It was bugging me to see the mandala from afar. It was just to washed out. So, I went over the colored areas with a red colored pencil. This is it-the final. I am pleased.

 Now on to Septembers piece. Think that it might be ballpoint pen.

Here are some flowers given to me by my husband for our 50th Anniversary. 
Oh my! what a milestone.

August 2018

It has been drawn to my attention that I have not posted in a while. Lazy? Maybe so. Thinking that no one cares. Maybe so. But, I decided that for today I would add my mandala for August. I struggled with whether or not to add color. Yes, I did. But, I present before and after for comparison. For such a calming project this became a hard decision. Peace of mind to just finish it.

Yes, it could have been done in many color combinations, but wanted to keep it low key.

Airport sketch

As I did this sketch, not once did the young man look up. Phones can be so intriguing.

Finally comfortable with sketching. Yes, there are "mistakes", but so what?

March mandala

Yes, I've used pen and colored pencils, BUT the outside border is a fuzzy cord that has been stitched! The technique was inspired by work by Izziyana Suhaimi  at www.Izziyana Suhaimi.com. Stitching on paper is definitely a new element for me.

February 2018

Doing a piece in a monochromatic color scheme has always been a challenge for me. Think that that log on my shoulder has been knocked off😊

Wow! another new year

For all that has happened in the last couple of months, one needs to be happy that they can welcome the new year. We are safe, no fire, mud slides or excessive snow. Yeah.

There is not the challenge of a general design pattern that I used last year.
 Just that it is a seven inch circle on a ten inch square of paper. 
Naturally, the color is more intense, but hope that you get the idea.

I am doing other work such as dyeing fabric, quilting, embellishing and drawing. 
More later. Blog posting seems to be low on the list!
