Leaded Mountains Colored Pencil Landscape 5×7

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I love stained glass windows. In fact, I learned how to make leaded windows in my late teens. It was almost magical to me how you could shape the glass and hold all those beautiful pieces together with some lead and solder. In this landscape I’ve tried to capture the same feeling of beautiful, milky glass with a definite border between each “piece.” I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!  Finished piece is 5″ x 7″ with an ample border for your mat and frame.  $20

Autumn is my favorite time of year. In this meadow landscape I have tried to capture a few things that I love about fall. Come with me and visit a meadow stream before the first snow of the year arrives.  This original landscape is done in colored pencil on 100 pound paper. The finished size is 5″ x 7″ with an ample border for easy matting and framing. $20

Experimenting

I’ve been working on some landscapes. Well, experimenting with them would be more accurate. I’ve been concentrating on using colored pencils for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that they are much more convenient for me to use – no prep time and no clean up which is very handy when caregiving. I’ll be adding mineral spirits to my arsenal tomorrow and see how that will affect my drawings. I can’t wait to give it a try. I’m also working on incorporating the tooth of the paper (the paper’s texture) into the finished piece of art. I love the soft look I can get with that. I’m looking forward to sharing some new pieces in the days to come!

Antique Americana Cow Kitty in Colored Pencil

This is the second in a series celebrating my love of quilting, sewing, and other needle arts – things to which I was introduced at a very young age.  This kitty was born out of a very fond memory of a variety of patchwork cats I had made quite a few years ago. But rather than coming to life in fabric, this kitty is drawn in colored pencil on 100 lb. paper.  The uncropped piece is 6″ x 9″. I have left an ample border around the drawing so it can be matted and framed with ease. The cropped image size is 5″ x 8″.  $20
