Good Friends and New Art

This is my newest colored charcoal drawing. It's done on a 3"x5" Pastelbord panel. I like using Pastelbord and will pick some more up on my next trip to Jerry's Artarama.

I plan on doing art today while I listen to a book on tape. I have a charcoal piece I want to tweak a bit and some new pictures that are giving me inspiration.

While at my moms on Friday I was taking pictures of her rhododendron and I can just picture a rat peeking out of the petals. Or perhaps holding one. I'm sure by the time I put pencil to paper something will click.

My next inspiration comes from a visit with two of my best friends yesterday. My friend has a stream running through her back yard! (how cool is that?) I finally took pictures of it since it was a beautiful sunny day. Here is a peek at one of the photos I may work from.

Well, that is all for now, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day with Mom. I am going to visit my super mom today and just have a nice relaxing day.

Yesterday my wonderful sister-in-law took my mom shopping in a humongous mall to find a dress for my nieces wedding. (I went along for the fun of it.) My mom is not the shopping type and doesn't especially like large stores, so it was interesting. We managed to trudge through a lot of the mall. Unfortunately a dress wasn't found but it was great company.

Although we had planned to do something today, mom is kinda worn out from yesterday, so we will be hanging in and see how the day goes.

This ACEO is from a few year's back.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!
