Small (3″ x 8.75″) ink pen and watercolor on Rives BFK print paper.
While going through mounds of papers/receipts for taxes, I found this little drawing (4.75″ x 6.25″). It’s done in brush and ink. I had tossed it aside some time ago, but it pranced right back to me! I also found a pair of earrings I’d been looking for, an original ACEO, and lots of small pieces of drawing paper.
White Pony is a small watercolor painting (8″ x 8″) on heavy watercolor paper. A couple of days ago, my mare Roxie and her pasture-mates were kicking up their heels and running and playing. It was freezing out, but they seemed to know something we didn’t. As I drove back home, I saw that several horses in the area were doing the same thing. I think they know spring is very near, and we’re seeing the last of the bitter cold. I’m pretty sure they were celebrating!
detail of Ghostly Irish, a half sheet watercolor & acrylic painting that’s headed for the “Six Views of Ireland” show at the Schepis Museum in Colombia, Louisiana, with: Linda & Bob Ward, Yvette & Doyle Jeter, and Judy & Bob Horne. We’ll each show our interpretations of Ireland based on recent trips.
I’ve been designing a lot lately with hearts or heart shapes. It’s February and maybe that’s one reason, but another is because I love the shape of the symbol of love. I wanted to see if I could create images or paintings with heart shapes without making it seem trite. Not sure I’m successful, but it makes to happy to create them, so off I go. How to Grow a Heart is a small ink drawing (4″ x 6-1/2″) with watercolor on paper.
