Art Updates...

The writing gene apparently did not rub off on me, which is probably why I don't post more...yep, that's my excuse. Maybe I need to write less and post more pictures.
I've been working on quite a few pieces since I last posted here, so I'm going to update everyone!

Let's see...I finished a charcoal drawing of a local dairy cow... this is 16" x 20" on pastelbord...

I finally finished the Lily of the Valley (it's a Flower of the Month for May). It's 8" x "10" on Stonehenge paper...and yes, it was white paper that I painstakingly darkened. (Reminder to myself that there are other papers to choose from!)

I also finished the tiger lilies here, that I believe is on Aquabord (Ampersand). It's 10" x 8" and is framed without glass.

The poinsettias are actually small - 4" x 4", almost coaster size, which is exactly what my family thinks it should be...

Another flower of the month, this time for June...an antique rose.

This is a 16" x 20" pastel of tropical flowers...I keep forgetting what they're called. I can't decide whether or not to leave it as is, with part of it incomplete, or work it a little more. That's why I haven't framed or named it. 

And finally, the autumn berries - on aquabord, 7" x 5", framed without glass. (I may have already added this to a post, but maybe not?)

I do have another colored pencil flower I'm working on...I promise to add this as I work instead of posting the finished product.
