Landscape Framed

Framed landscape painting.  This one hangs in my living room because I love it so much.  It reminds me of growing up in a small town where the cows out numbered the people.  It also brings to mind..... smells........ that most people think are gross.


This painting with gold leaf may never get done.  Here a link to a post of the same project.

Pen and Ink Sketch

I have been using an ink grinder and an ink stick to grind my own ink.  Lots and lots of joy....... and much fun!!!!!!!  It actually works better than the normal waterproof india ink on the water color paper.  Plus I can get some great variety in tone.

This is a head demo of some of my homemade charcoal.  
It is done on handmade paper.  I used skim milk to "fix" it.

Super Sculpey to the rescue!!!, Mayflower Ship

This is a mini sculpture that I have been working on.  The clay is various types of Super Sculpey (Firm, Beige/Original, and 50/50 mix).  I started this project with a different type of clay it was awful, like sculpting with taffy.  Super Sculpey works more like Plasteline.  I have been using Plasteline since I was a kid.  I love Plasteline.

Beautiful Jackson Hole Lake

I am really glad that cloud was in front of the sun.  The 
sky radiates warm colors to cool, and the mountains are 
disappearing into the distance.

Pen Face Sketch

I found myself sitting and waiting...... so I did 
a sketch.   Regular "Bic" Pens are fun because 
you can get a half-tone with a light touch.
