So what's buggin' me? Lately I've been in a funk with my art. Things aren't coming along quite the way I'd like. Maybe it's because of summer. Or that my time for art has been chopped up due to lots of other work coming in. Or that there is so much neglected stuff around the house that keeps calling for my attention. Whatever the reason I haven't had much to post recently simply because I don't have much art happening and what art I have attempted to do I haven't wanted to post. Big whine. It will get better.

Anyway, about a month ago I drew this little ladybug. It seemed lonely, so last night I drew the moth to keep it company. It has been a while since I posted any art cards. They are very relaxing to make and at least I can feel like I have accomplished something. But don't worry, no insects were harmed in the making of these drawings.

Hi Ann,

Love the delicate colors in the moth! Thanks for stopping by my blog... I haven't tried the Colourfix papers yet - but got a couple of samples on my last trip to the art store so I look forward to experimenting with them soon.

Ann said...

wow - you all are too kind! Thanks everyone for stopping by and leaving such kind comments!

thanks for the welcome at EDM! I came to your blog and enjoyed myself :-) The moth is a great drawing. Up here in the Sierras we get a lot of bugs and I've often thought that I should draw them..... and that's as far as I get!
