While the girl in my drawing is technically not a fairy she is none the less because she is a friend. The drawing is a 9×12 done on white paper using soft pastel,color pencils, and black pen. Home they say is where you hang your hat. I think home is where you feel loved. A house is just a house unless it is filled with warmth and love. In the same light home does not have to be the place where we hang our hat or sleep. Home can at a friends or church. Growing up I felt like I was home when I visited certain friends or relatives. Someday I will be in an ultimate home with Jesus and others who have gone before me. Oh what a glorious day that will be.
Today is Father’s Day. The prompt for today the word, “father,” of course. My picture entitled, “Me and My Dad,” is an homage to my father who passed on many years ago. It is a reflection back to the days when I would venture to the mountains of West Virginia to visit family. So all the fathers out there Happy Father’s Day.
On this auspicious day of March 2nd the prompt for the daily doodle is a mystery. No I mean the prompt was to draw something based on the word mystery. I spent quite a few hours pondering this one.
The reason I chose the baby and the puppy was because to me life is a mystery. Science seeks to explain life away as a process but to me life is more than a process. It is a miracle wrapped up in a mystery which can only be answered by a faith in God. I know there will be those who disagree but that is okay. I hope you enjoy my picture “A Girl and Her Dog.”
“A Woman by the Sea,” is a simple #2 pencil drawing done on tan card stock. I love the look of pencil on paper. I hope to offer some more of these simple drawings in the future. As an artist it is always good to get back to the basics and just drawing.
Today’s offering entitled the “Sunflower” is a mixed media affair. The original sketch was done on an old book page and then enhanced digitally using “Art Studio.” As always any art work on my blog is for sale simply email me.
