Updates, New Work, and Resource of the Week

Greetings everyone! 
It's been a very busy week, registering my daughter for school and her birthday. It's her senior year, so it's going to be a very busy year for us all. 
I got some new works to share and some great news.......

Some great and exciting news! I was just ask to submit "Broken Hearted" as a part of a collection of artwork in the upcoming book, “Amazing Pencil Portraits 3”. Very excited and honored. Check out Sally Ford's Platte's production of the book here
Broken Hearted
New Work
This is one of the landscapes for upcoming show. The scanner didn't pick up the details at all, nor the correct colors, so I photographed it with my daughter's digital camera. Note to myself: Really need to buy a new digital camera to take photos of artwork. Anyways this is done in color pencil. It's 3.0 x 4.0.

Tujunga Sunrise
New Sketches
Ellen Million's Sketch Fest #17 August 19-20. The first sketch is from prompt snow white and rose red - calling this one "Who's the Fairest?" Will be finishing this one up in color pencil. The second was prompt for winged wolf. This ACEO is up for sale at sketchfest. 
Note: The scanner didn't pick up all the details and colors of this small piece either. Really need to get that new camera or a new scanner.
Sketchfest #17
Resource of the Week

Updates, New Work and Resource of the Week

Hello Everyone!
I have been having a lot of breathing problems as of late, due to my asthma, so haven't had a lot of energy as of late. I can't wait til fall, when the farmers are done plowing and tilling. I havent' been able to get outside much do anything or do any walks. However, I have been working on my miniature pieces for upcoming show in the fall at the Walters Cultural Arts Center in Hilsborro, Oregon . Hope to be sharing a couple of new miniatures with everyone by the end of next week.

I will be doing a upcoming color pencil eye tutorial for well known UK artist Melanie Phillips for her new site. I will let everyone know more about the details on next blog update
