Two Trees

Summer has fled.  It's pouring rain and blowing
like crazy.  The dead salmon are drifting down the creek.
The seagulls are  having a great feast on them.

For The Virtual Paintout Blogspot



I am always conflicted about doing this, finally did a drawing of a drawing on  the side of a music shop.  Done in markers, acrylic and just plain markers.

Some Pictures of Ketchikan from Nowhere (Gravina Island)


















It was such a beautiful day yesterday, I took my bicycle on the ferry to the island our airport is on (Gravina Island) and went for a bike ride down the highway "to nowhere" that was built down the middle of it, at taxpayer's expense, for no reason that an average citizen can see.  Anyway it is a great bicycle ride and nice to see Ketchikan from a different perspective.

Sue Hodnett and Harry


This woman lives in London, I believe. She does amazing watercolors.  I tried to "copy" one of her watercolor portraits of a fellow flickr artist, LOL, and made him end up looking like a bear.  Thankfully he was quite happy with the results.

Kentucky Backyard


I was a Vista Volunteer for a year in Louisville, Kentucky.  The house I stayed in had a detached garage and a barbeque thing in the backyard.  Most of the houses in Louisville had the same thing.  They were used often during the hot summer evenings.

For Studio Atelier




okay, i decided to just cover the acrylics with the pastels as soon as they dried.   I hope she'll accept this one, instead of the other so unfinished one. :C
