29 Faces #1

a youthful elf

I very much enjoy drawing and painting faces
making this a very fun challenge,
one face a day for 29 days.

My personal challenge is to portray the spirit of the character in the faces I draw, as well as to improve on their features, especially noses.
Visit 29 Faces to enjoy others doing this challenge. 
Thank you Ayala Art for hosting this!

AC: Room {with a view}

painting inspired by my world
(as most of my art is):
Porch with a View

lovely Nadine of tinyWOOLF

well recently i looked out my window and saw this big owl
a Great Gray

the world around me often inspires my art
sitting in the corner of my couch
next to a good light
i sketch and paint

last year i painted
the view from my door: 

this week
the view from my porch
summer is a great time to sit on the porch!

lovely last days of Summer
or perhaps Winter
to you 

thank you for getting our fun weekends up and going Nadine!

Deer Man and Little Man

when he saw the little mushroom man
he knelt 
to take him to heart
watch him do his yoga

this painting was partially inspired 
by this antler I found a while ago
they fall off once a year

I hung it on my wood shed
to enjoy it daily

love that it crept into my art

Aqua Hair

the other night
i took pencil to paper

watercolors followed

always curious
to see who will show up on the page

Story Tellers

They have so much to tell her!

They told her about the baby merganser ducks
that like to ride on their mothers back:


about the magical pink and purple moss cloaked boulder
in the forest

how under the stars of the night sky
it rises from the earth 
becoming its moonlight form
a rugged man
who waltzes with the trees
