An Interesting face to draw...

This is a pencil drawing, or rather a rough drawing on brown textured paper of Alexandra (Alexandra is much prettier than this drawing) but she has such an interesting face. She gave me permission to use a photo she had on FB. I hope she doesn't mind my drawing! I love using colored pencil but it seems sometimes I don't have just the right color! I am definitely going to draw, maybe try to paint, but for sure draw again on different textured papers! This particular paper didn't allow me to blend very well. So I have to try again!

Still playing in my 4" x 6" journal and a WIP...

The top one is work in progress...not sure where I will go with it but I am enjoying the process. Of course some needed distraction with the girly girl stuff. I love paper dolls, yes still, at my age! I have been cutting some out and pasting them onto papers just playing. I use to cut out the Mary Englebrite (spelling?) paper dolls from her magazine every now and then when I bought one. I then took my Xyron and adhered the cutouts onto magnet sheets and now I have a little collection. I keep thinking I will give these little magnetized dolls to some little girl someday but can't seem to part with them yet. I don't know why! Then there is my love for mermaids. Go figure. I have been playing around with ACEO's but haven't posted yet.

I feel like drawing!

These were recently added in my little pocket journal, pencil, watercolor, stamp ink, patterned paper, MS butterflies, not much done for the day. But so enjoying the wonderful weather we are having, it is dream like weather. It is a little breezy right now and there are beautiful wispy clouds with blue sky. I hear the ice cream truck whistling by. So it is about time to make dinner (fish tacos) tonight and maybe more drawing for dessert!

A self portrait of me done in my mid to late 20's. I just found it I have to get my sketchbook out and some pencils and lose myself in the line and in my imagination!

Still waiting for my son to fix my blogger!

Look what caught Fwed's eye this afternoon....

Blogger won't let me leave comments or read many that were left. I accidently found many comments left through the back door but I can't comment back! So thank you that left me comments since the last ones posted here! I know when my son comes by for my computer check up he might be able to enable it once again. I can't leave comments on many blogs nor can I sign in to some. Who knows. Anyway, these woodpeckers were really big! Fwed and I were upstairs looking through a dirty window. When the weather improves so will the view. It just isn't worth it with all the rain right now. Click on the picture to get a larger image.

The moment waits for you....

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog! I appreciate all of your visits and comments!
