Fun Gifts In The Mail


I was the winner of a recent drawing held by Lesa of Percolating Today.   I was so excited when she contacted me.  I never win anything.  And I have a great weakness for boxes and containers and cigar boxes in particular.


This purse is so cute with the modern beaded Miami design on one side and the original cigar label on the other.  The handle is a very nice shiny silver color and the corners are too. 


Lesa filled the inside with a big bag of CHOCOLATE!  There was actually more than this but it didn't last long enough for the camera.  


And look what I can do now!  Its perfect for taking some pencils along.  I love it!  Thank you Lesa.

I Have the Coolest Students


Sea Turtle by Debra Cox

 Every now and then I've just got to do a little bragging on my students.  I have amazing students in my local classes.  Here is a colored pencil drawing created for Debi's granddaughter.  It took many many patient hours to create.


Vintage aluminum cups by Justine Hennessy

My online students at Creative Pencils are no less amazing.  How proud I am of them as they bravely move forward through the workshops to build their drawing skills.  In the Pencils Series, 101, 201, & 301, the students learn to draw what they see and the basics of shading.  They move forward quickly.  These shiny vintage aluminum cups were drawn as a part of one of those shading exercises.  I love that Justine captured the sheen of the metal. 





Cat portrait by Sandra Petersen

Several of my Creative Pencils students have been studying their way through a workshop on creating cat portraits in graphite.  This is one of the examples of the wonderful work they are producing.  Look at those eyes.  They look right into your soul.   Good job, Sandra.


Dancing Swan by Elizabeth Johnson


And now, as promised, today is the day to announce the winner of my drawing from the GYB event held by Vicki of 2 Bags Full.  Thank you Vicki for this lovely event.  I know you worked many hours to create it.  I promised a drawing for a prize on February 1.  The prize I offered was an 10" x 8"  giclee fine art print of my Dancing Swan drawing.   The name chosen through a random drawing was Patty of Patty's Pretty Things.  Patty, I will be shipping this Dancing Swan off to you in a few days.  I hope you enjoy her.
