A new day, a new flower. And you thought this blog was just going to be about my dogs!

My moleskin no longer has blank pages. Today while on the ferry to Seattle I decided to work on flowers. I used Faber-Castell artist pens the basic six and a Faber-Castell black Fine point pen. The down side of initially drawing the flower is if I make a mistake I'm stuck with it. So probably all new drawings will be drawn first in pencil,outline in black pen, and finally add color. The whole idea of using the moleskin is just to get use to sketching in public, instead of always just working in my studio. I'm trying to get myself psyched up for my trip to Venice, Italy in May.

Spent the day off and on trying to figure out how to post a picture of me for my blog. Finally figured out how, but still not what I wanted. I guess this is just the learning process of blogging!

Worked on colored pencil drawing of a Bird Of Paradise. Tomorrow I start on colored pencil drawing of my house.

Yup...I'm Just crazy about dogs. I live with 5 beautiful dogs who have enriched my life daily. They are the reason I get up each morning and want to create art. Sophie is my baby, she's a Cavaliver King Charles Spaniel; then Zuzu who is a Yorkie; Jolie is a Chinese Crested Powder Puff; Bella and Chloe are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
