Hi everyone. It's been forever since I was in here last, but I have been soooo busy. I found some of my artwork, and thought I would share it with all of you. This is a colored pencil drawing of a Painted Bunting...I think. Anyway, enjoy it...I do!

Self taught, actually. I have a degree in Commercial Art, but the talent is what made me do that. I started drawing Silver, out of my Lone Ranger coloring books when I was 7. (I never actually colored in those books, either...just drew the the pictures onto another piece of paper...lol)
There is a down side to obsessing over details...I drive myself nuts if it doesn't look perfect. perpl

Thanks, Tonya. I've suddenly become inspired again, so I've pulled out the art supplies and started warming up again.

Oh, I LOVE Prismacolor pencils...the colors blend oh so nicely. However, at 3 bucks per pencil, and mine seem to have gone A.W.O.L., Crayola and Roseart do the trick. Did I mention how much I LOVE Prismacolors?...lol

I found the rose bush. The photo turned out a bit fuzzy and it looks warped (the dangers of taking a picture of a flat item), but as soon as photobucket gets done chewing on it, I'll put it on.
