Fifty Shapes


This one is done. I've been calling it “Fifty Shades of Gray-Green”, but more than anything else it's a shape study with a little work on depth. 12×16 acrylic, graphite, and pastel on canvas.




Black and White Watercolors


I've been working on these in the evenings when I have a cat or two on my lap. Makes it a bit tricky, but they're only 5 x 7. I used watercolor crayons and graphite. It was interesting to see how much depth I could achieve.




Winter part 2


We've reached the end of March without much sign of spring here in VT except a few disappointed red-wing blackbirds who hung around the feeders out back for a couple of days. I suspect they've retreated south again; I heard a distinct “WTF?” In the usual red-wing calls. We're nursing another sick cat, and when I can't entice him to sleep on my lap, I've been working on this journal spread.
