I know I am early. . . . but look what I found. !!!

I know this is not the best picture, could be a little brighter and darker, but, I still use my camera, because I am saving up for a good scanner.

I started this drawing about this time last year, maybe a little later.

Was going to use it as an example for my 3rd grade class. Things changed, I had to retire because of some health issues and so on and so on.

Came across it a few days ago while going through some stuff !! Now I am just in time to finish it for Halloween I guess.

It is done all in plain old regular 2B pencil on white 80lb drawing paper. You know school supplies, you can't spend a whole lot, so you do with what you can afford.

It was fun, and now I cannot wait to work on it again.

We have been seeing . . . . . .

Can you see the Rainbow in this
picture below

I guess if we have been having all this rain, it stands to reason we will also get the chance to see beautiful rainbow.
Wishing all of you a weekend of Rainbows !!!
It seems like all it has been doing lately around here is raining, thundering, lightning and so on.
The one nice thing about thunderstorms and rain clouds is all the amazing pictures of clouds you can get.
Here are a few I wanted to share on yet another rainy day here in my part of the country.
Hopefully it will clear up, want to go to the Westport Art Fair this weekend.

I finally got up the nerve and did it. . . . . .

I finally did it !!! I got up the courage and joined The Sketchbook Project. I had filled out the form over a month ago when I first heard about it, but, just couldn't decide. Today I decided what am I waiting for, so I hit go to check out and did it.

Thanks to Eden at Draw, Doodle and Decorate for listing some others who have already signed up. Check out her blog to see. I can't wait to get my sketchbook and start.

Another reason I finally decided was my son Andrew has now moved to Brooklyn, NY and since that is where this is based I decided maybe I might even get there to see it. Andrew is also an artist so I am thinking of giving it to him as a Christmas present.

Any way. good luck to all have decided to participate, and thanks Eden for giving me the push.

How does everyone keep track ??????

I sometimes get overwhelmed at all the different days and groups and ATC and whatever.
How do all of you keep track of what you are suppose to be doing on any given day, I would be comletely befuddled.
Don't get me wrong I think it is fantastic, I just am not sure I could keep it all straight.

Also, how do you get to belong to all these groups and how do you know what they are?
Now that I am going to be getting ( hopefully) back to having time to do more art, I would love to become involved in some of them.

Any help ,suggestions or ways to would be appreciated.

Love my "Blogging friends" and all their amazing work !!!

Eden's Celtic Knot Inspiration. . . . .

I know this is not quite a Celtic Knot, but it reminds me of some I have seen. I just love using markers and doing things like this with paper.
Check out Draw Doodle and Decorate Blog by Eden today for a great Celtic Knot video.
Thanks Eden for a great post.

Eden at Draw, Doodle and Decorate has the most amazing post today. A gorgeous Celtic Knot in beautiful bright colors and then with Zentangle like designs on it, with a title Six Degrees of Seperation .

Her post reminded me of some similar pieces I did that I shared above/
Eden also had a link to a video on how to draw this Celtic Knot that is really nice.
I like Eden love markers, bright colors and doodling. What fun I am going to have making Celtic Knots this weekend, whenever I am not at PetsMart.
How nice to be putting up a post again.
