The days have been mostly cold and extremely windy here in our mountains lately and I have been busier than usual with stuff. Yes, just the stuff I usually have to do but at a more hectic pace these last few weeks for some reason. However, I did manage to do these two ACEOs this past week while watching (listening to, really) the Democratic debates on TV. Maybe because there has been this air of stress around me lately that I chose two calming, warm summer images to draw. They are both scenes from my "neighborhood" when it is at its best. All warm sunshine and soft breezes.

Your artwork is really motivating. That's what I want to do when I grow up :)

very nice little cards :D I just want to lay down and sleep on that grass, its looks so soft, or see shapes in the clouds.

I love the texture in your artwork-your colored pencil technique is great.

Also, those Derwent colortint pencils in the post below are awesome-so subtle and rich...I think I may have to go shopping ...:)

These are absolutely beautiful. You are very talented.

Thanks for visiting my blog again, and for your comment on my mouth. I wanted to write more, but ran out of room. I hope my children will someday find my sketchbooks and read them.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate you all stopping by :)

Great stuff! I love this one, the scene seems somehow familiar! ( I swear I've been at that very spot before!) the colors and texture of your pencil work on this one is g.
Good job!
