Four Legged Slug with Woman Rider

Four Legged Slug With Woman Rider
Janet C. Fish

I started this picture at least a couple of months ago.  I had some new paint to play around with, so did.  Then since I am looking for projects to finish right now, I saw this and thought I should finish it.  The slug and woman were both in the shapes already.  I just had to outline them.  Then I used pastels to color in the slug and woman.  It was fun, no masterpiece, but fun.

I have more projects to finish that have been laying around here for days, months, years.  Not a whole lot of them, but enough that I need and want to catch up.  It's fun to accumulate unfinished projects then go back with a new view.

Peace Hand

Peace Picture

I started this picture for my husband around 2 years ago.  I traced my own hand.  At that time I was concerned that I might die soon, and wanted to leave him something special from me.  But I never finished it until today.  It is only technically finished.  I will likely add to it over time.  I'm thinking about a heart in the upper right hand corner.

My next one I'm hoping will be both of our hands, fingers reaching toward one another somehow.

Just to let you know

I have reached a bogged down thing with my drawing.  I still enjoy drawing, but I don't really like the results most of the time lately.  So, am taking art in a different direction for a while.  

My next post will be probably in a week, maybe less, I hope.   Maybe more, I fear.  It will likely be a crocheted hyperbolic plane with a little art worm I made sitting in it.  The worm is pretty cute.  The hyperbolic plane is interesting to me due to the type of yarn I'm using.  It's a chiffon left over from manufacturing, and cut into ribbons and different colors tied together.  

It is tough to work with.  Tires my hands.  But I think the finished piece will be cool.  I HOPE.  LOL

Drawing has been healing for me.  But I think I need to go in various other directions for a while, just to enjoy newish things.  Things I haven't done in a while mostly.  And finishing up projects.  

Thanks for being here.  I don't see who sees my blog posts, but I do see that people are here now and again seeing them.  So, thank you for that.  I appreciate it.

Mother Nature, Cat or Something

Two pictures that were at least fun to make.  I'm going to be starting some other projects soon.  Not drawings.  Fun stuff!  Well, fun for me anyway.

This picture was just playing around with ink colors and watercolor pencils.  It was fun to play with.  Interesting that water doesn't seep through to the back of the paper easily.  I've not had any problems that way.  But this alcohol ink does seep through to the back of this paper.  That must be why slick paper or plastic paper is used with the inks.  It can be just beautiful on the plastic paper.  Amazes me.

A Long, Sleepless Night

This seems to be a lot of my life lately.  I hope I learn how to sleep again someday soon.
