This is a drawing (with pencil and white watercolor pencil) on Canson paper that I did recently from a vintage photo. I have entered it for judging in a show titled "For and About Women" along with the three girls on a tractor (see earlier post). I was inspired to try this media after looking at a book of Da Vinci drawings.

Then, a cardinal!

Happy New Year!

I hope you all have a wonderful 2010! I have been very busy with the journaling class and have now started another one called Sketching in Nature. I'm going to post some of my pages here as well as on my flickr page so I hope you enjoy them. I've found that working in a journal has given me a freedom in my work that I am very excited about. I hope it will translate to a full sheet of watercolor paper. I have two shows coming up this year (a 3-person show in June and a solo show in October) plus I'll be entering work in the local galleries throughout the year. I'm glad to have a full-time job in this economy but I find myself wishing for more time to paint.
