Progression - Poppie Sketches






Now to add a little bit more background color and texture and then to finish the edges.  As you can see I need to update my sketchbook sketch of the poppies as well.  I started this small piece way back in 2009, I may finish it yet.

Bi-Focal Adjustment


It's taking some getting used to, today I put on my cheater glasses thinking things would be much better only to discover how bad those cheater glasses really are!  I officially have "Elder Eyes".

WIP - Untitled Vine Piece - 112311

I finally figured out what it was that was bugging me about this piece and I concluded, this morning that I was getting way to literal with the vine interpetation.  So back to the drawing board and time to remove some stitching.

WIP - Untitled Vine 112211

The hand stitching to the far left is bothering me, am setting the piece aside and will pick it up again in the morning, maybe I won't feel so froggy in the am.

WIP - Untitled Vine Piece 112111

Now with more stitching, I'm thinking I seriously need to go dimensional with it though using coils, etc.

Not Convinced

I stitched the flax down and now wish I had not done so, I was hoping to capture a creek here locally that has several ox-bows coming off of the main stream.  I may cut some back, may add some hand stitching not sure yet.  Thinking.

Studio Redux 110211



Working on the drawing/painting space portion of the studio. I still need to move the canned goods out of the hutch and then paint the inside of the hutch a hot carnation pink color!



From peach to black in less than 30 minutes!  The hutch is the future home of my painting and drawing supplies, along with still life objects and inspirational items.
