While I am gone…

As promised, here are some of the things I have been working on in my new creative space. Many of these are from an Instagram art challenge I have been taking part in with other artists and creative people from around the world.  It started on June 1st and ended on June 21st.

Looking at this, I am all over the place, but after years of very sporadic periods of drawing and painting, I need the practice.  Like anything else, it takes practice to improve skills.  Before I went to college my drawing skills were much better than they are now because I had a fairly regular sketching schedule.  You would think as an art major I would have continued that, but a concentration in design did not include drawing and painting.  Then a full time job, then a family and boom, twenty-five years have gone by.

Some of these sketches I plan to refine into finished pieces.  I liked where they were going and want to spend some more time on them.

I am hoping to get some sketching in while I am on vacation.  If I manage to, I will post those when I get back.  Also, when I get back I have committed to a large charity event project that should be tons of fun and I will post the process of that undertaking.

Have a wonderful summer and Happy 4th of July for my U.S. readers.
