The first is a fantasy piece, done in colored pencil on Stonehenge paper, titled "Tending the Elderly" & depicts a fairy tending an elderly dragon at its cave home. The second , also done in colored pencil, if a portrait of my granddaughter.
New projects include a quilt which will be colored in colored pencil. I've come upon a method to do this & I'm doing a small quilt to test the method. If it works as its supposed to, I'll post it here once its finished.

This colored pencil "painting" was inspired by July 4th celebrations. I was thinking about all those soldiers who are overseas at this time and this image popped into my head. So I decided to draw it. It's on regular drawing paper & is done with Prismacolor pencils. The size is 14 x 17, unmounted. It is for sale if anyone's interested, just email me.
I've done some family portraits of my kids & grandkids, and a couple of small challenges, but look for more CP work to come. I've decided that watercolor & colored pencil will be my mediums of choice for art work along with art quilts. I'm not abandoning them at all, just taking a break.
