                                                       10  x 15       Colored Pencils

It's really funny, visiting the Louvre a few weeks ago I took some pictures of a few statues wanting to draw them and lo and behold this is the exercise Karin from DSFDF gives us.
 So I was happy to practice. 
As I was drawing this piece I started seeing the love between these two in a much deeper fashion then when I first glanced at it, hence the title.

                                                      8  x  11   pencil 3B

                                I went to the Getty museums yesterday with my daughter, it was beautiful. We got a chance to see incredible  art paintings like Monet's "IRIS" and many others but at one moment I got a chance to see my daughter looking up into the light.
 The only thing I can say is I believe in something greater than ourselves even more glorious. 
So      "look up"     for there is more than what the mere eye sees.
                               Blessings to all this EASTER.               NFS

" Laura's garden "

                           8  x  11   pencil, tombow pen, watercolor

This is the piece done with the local San Diego Sketchcrawl get together, we meet at Laura's house which was a feast for the eyes. We then ate lunch together and passed around our drawing pads. Good company and good artists makes for a fun time.

faux " Marble "

I was tired of seeing my last post but I haven't done anything new so I thought I would post something I did a while ago.
This is a door and frame which got painted and coated to make it look like marble for a company selling marble !
I had lost of fun doing this because I could choose to copy any of the marbles that were around me but this one had elegance to it, in my opinion. So I decided to do this for my door.
The name that we partially see is their company but they moved sadly.
