Lime Green and Purple.

Summer of Color:  Week 3.
This weeks chosen colors are Lime Green and Purple.  Not my usual cup of tea, since I typically prefer muted colors, but I had been working on this drawing in my sketch book, so it worked out perfectly.  :)

As I worked on it, with Watercolor Pencils.

After adding a bit of water.

This week has been quite fun.  I have had the opportunity to meet up with 3 blog friends.

and Jenny from Creativity Is Happiness
You should definitely check out their blogs, because they are both amazing and fantastic artists.  
It was wonderful to spend time with them and discuss, as well as, do art.  :)
The other blog friend I met earlier this week, but didn't get a picture with.  
Clarice has a very creative and beautiful blog, with an enormous amount of yummy recipes.  
Definitely pop over and visit her.

this is a random pic of my kitty....FooFoo, he is very photogenic.

I happened upon this old pic of a place my kids and I used to like to go for walks.  
So I thought I'd share.  

Have a happy and glorious rest of the week.

Summer Of Color: Week 2

Better late than never!  
For week 2 of Summer Of Color, the colors we had to work with were:  
Bright Orange and Hot Pink.  
My apologies on the quality of my picture, it is a bit too dark in here.
 I may have to retake them tomorrow, when it's a little brighter.
(I did add two more photos, but they still don't quite capture the color, it's amazing how different the picture can look from the actual piece, maybe you should all come over for coffee and goodies and we can share our art in person. :)

With my colors, I left them a bit subtle.
 Only coloring in her face and the dragonflies, going
for black ink and a little grey here and there.
As usual, I combined a woman with nature.  :)

I leave you with some Summer and a few pics of the sunset.

Have a splendid weekend!

Guess What Time It Is?

It's Summer Of Color Time!!!

If you don't know what this is, then you definitely need to pop on over to Kristin's blog
and check out this very cool, very fun, very exciting blog fest!  This is the 3rd Summer of Color and every year it gets better and better.  
It's a great way to meet other creative, artistic bloggers.  
Expand your own art and creativity.  
See some really cool ideas.  
Win some really fantastic prizes.

I'm super excited about it.  The great thing is, if you can't participate 100% (for instance, I will be out of town for a week), it's okay, you can jump in whenever you are available.  
Happy Summer Everyone!!!
