Here is what I did Saturday - took a class in Dayton at the DAGSO chapter with Marian Jackson. She is a wonderful teacher! This is her copy from her website - mine is almost done. This is color pencil on Mi-Tientes tobacco paper. This class was very informative and enjoyable.
When I get mine done, I will post and you can compare.
Thanks to all involved!!!!! & Happy Painting!

Here is a work in progress - this is going to be titled 'Impatience for Charleston'. It is color pencil on a 16 x 20 piece of blue, smooth vellum. You can see my reference picture that I took along with my magifying glass.
This picture was taken 2 years ago in Charleston, SC on our Honeymoon.

Well this show went pretty well. We really enjoyed it - had a few sales and some contacts. This was a well established show - over 20 years so it drew a big crowd. Unlike the first show, there was no rain! Yeah! This being the 2nd show - we were also more relaxed. I know that I need to focus on some smaller items but hopefully I will be combining the art with some quality crafts.
Keep watching my blog and please make comments - it really makes you feel good when people comment.

Had all 4 grandsons this past weekend - we had a great time - went to a museum for a Dragon Exhibit on Friday night, swimming, Butterfly Festival and Dayton Dragons Game all on Saturday! In between time there were kickball games, playing chess, drawing and playing a computer game - that's what happens when you have three 9 year olds and one 5 year old - must keep everyone busy - but I think all had a great time!
Must get back to work!

The weather here was absolutely wonderful here today - we had a birthday party for the Brother-in-law which has been a tradition for over 40 years. Turned out very nice!
Both Gracie and Heidi was groomed Friday for the party - so they were their absolute best! Heidi, the Great Pry, is so white you need sunglasses to look at her now.
Have a great week!!!!!

She is always a joy to make - she just comes to life right in front of me!!!!!
If you are interested, she is $40.00 plus shipping. She can be made in different colors to suit you.
It has been a great weekend, went to a hosta walk on Saturday and spent the rest of the day in Columbus. I had never been to a Hosta walk - they had over 600 hostas at this farm north of Columbus, Ohio - could have spent a fortune - but only bought a half of dozen. Beautiful speciums!
Thanks for looking!!!!!

I haven't been on here much lately because after doing the Memorial Day Parade, that I described in a previous post, I immediately starting on the Cancer Relay for Life that was held from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. the next day - June 5th & 6th. I was the Captain for our Exchange Club so I had to make sure every thing was organized. It was really a lot of fun, and very, very heart warming. I had a luminary dedicated to both of my parents who passed away from Cancer and I walked in the survivor walk as I am a twice survivor of melanoma! Thank God for great Doctors! I truly believe that they have saved my life. If you have never participated in one of these it is well worth doing - it makes you feel so good that people care!!!!! We are going to beat this Cancer thing!!!!!!!
Oh, by the way, I donated a print of my Kohl dog painting that is posted here on the blog. They promoted it by saying that it was done by a cancer survivor! The gentleman that won it was tickled!
So - now I hope to be better at updating my blog. I will probably be posting in another couple of days!!!!!
Happy Painting everyone!!!!

I'm working on a watercolor single Rose that should be done this week. For my upcoming show in July I need to focus on some smaller (8x10) pictures so that is my goal. I want to do this same rose in different colors. At the parade I had my camera with me, of course, you hardly ever find me with out one, and got some great shots of some horses (my favorite animal - next is dogs) so I'm hoping to attempt them. They were beautiful - a 4-H club - they had stenciled Stars on them and red/white & blue sparkley streamers one the tails. You never know when you are going to see something that might make a great painting!
I guess it looks like I'm getting the hang of this after all.
Have a great day everyone!!!!!!!

This is my attempt to do one of the twin grandsons - I'm not really pleased with this - I think that I need to do something different with his mouth.
I am currently working on a geranium watercolor that I will post soon.
Thanks for looking - please leave me comments.
