                                  I saw this and couldn't help myself I had to paint it

                                            pencil - colored pencil - collage

I wanted something more in my original drawing. I thought of lines that I would draw but I wanted color too. So I decided to add the color but that was horrible by it- self . I decided to add the lines but thought it would be more interesting if they were made of a magazine picture.
So here are my lines, my color and my little white pumkins.

                                             Beautiful white pumpkins for DSFDF but I want to add something before I e-mail this one but I don't know yet what it is, so I'm going to chew on it a little.

"Prickly Pond"

                                                     8 x 10 Oil on gessoed hardboard
Prickly pond in Warren Vermont has always mesmerized me I truly believe it is a heavenly place and I have the pleasure of visiting there. This is were the famous Prickly Floats of the 4 th of July are made. Go check August post. My daughter was mentioning that this is the spot were she painted the windmill for the Parade. It's a beautiful memory place.


                       This was such a beautiful walk very early in the morning in Warren Vermont ,              arriving at my brother's place on the Loop Road.
