Duck Duck Finished

Duck, Duck

Here's a new piece I'm working on.  Scrapbooking paper again with colored pencil, graphite, and pen.  Photo courtesy of Photographer Anne Kelly from Facebook and used with permission.  She takes some wonderful photos, and I have used several for my artwork.  The paper is about 8x10 inches.

"Harey" the hare

I did this for the Weekend Drawing Event for Wetcanvas for May 9, 2014.  I picked a photo of a beautiful hare.  This is done on watercolor paper, with watercolor, colored pencil, and pen.  The paper is 9x12 inches.  The paper is in a journal sketchbook like the ones Cathy Johnson uses.

My mom had a cyst removed from her shoulder.  My nephew took her for the procedure and when he dropped her off at home, he needed a break.  I went over and sat with her for a couple hours and started this piece.  I finished it at home tonight.

A Precious Gift From God

I just watched a video that was posted on Facebook.  I cried all the way thru it and still crying.  It was just so touching.  What started it all was FB deleted a photo the mother posted of her newborn who was born without part of his brain/head,  When she reposted it, she was banned from FB. Not sure if the ban was permanent or short term but it shouldn't have been banned at all.

Here is the video.
