AEDM - Woman with Red Earrings

So here is a type of version of Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer's masterworks Girl with a Pearl Earring except it is Woman with Red Earrings. I know my work doesn't compare but this is what I thought of it. I have a 16X20 copy of one of his paintings. Being the reader that I am I read the book by Tracy Chevalier which I loved. Also loved the movie with Colin Firth. I am a Historical Fiction Fan! This is my Sunday drawing for my Worship Service notes. I try to have these done before service begins because I don't want to set a bad example for my children.

AEDM - Seeing Butterflies

We have a wonderful Butterfly Conservatory in our vicinity that I love. The butterflies are free to fly and if you stand still they will land on you. Although I am off on Saturday's my day was full so as usual my creativeness had to wait for the end of the day.

IF: Sneaky

A little sister can be very sneaky when she wants to hug her brother who is non compliant. A quick little drawing for Illustration Friday - Sneaky.

AEDM - The Almighty Converse

Another sketch for my Chuck Taylor Converse Collection. Hopefully I'll get to add color to them next week since I will be off work, but with us going out of town Wednesday I'll only have 2 days. Thursday morning my husband and I will be running in the ATL Half-Marathon and after that I will probably just relax.

AEDM - Work in Progress

So here is my work in progress. I want to do a collection of converse sneakers. Too busy to finish anything today. We had to go to IB Open House. My youngest daughter will be entering High School next year and I feel like we are sending her to college. Schools are testing for entrance in 2011. I miss the simple days when everyone went to the same High School.

AEDM - Lady in the Grass

So I've been doing my housework in the morning before I go to work, so my creativeness has to come at the end of day after everyone has been chauffeured and fed. I wish I could hire a maid. So now at 9:30pm I've finally finished work on Lady in the Grass. I had to leave it alone because sometimes as much as you try you can't work thru it.

AEDM - Sunday drawings

On Sundays I usually doodle before the sermon begins. This is my doodle for today. I usually just keep these drawings in my notebook, but it is still being creative, so I decided to post these little drawings.

AEDM - Bus Ride

I worked on this for several hours. I was attempting to have the same strokes in the coat on her face. It's still not what I was hoping to for. More practice needed.

IF: Burning - A Sad Disturbing Story

Things like this I usually just keep in my journal but this is so disturbing everyone needs to know. This week in the New York Times there was a story about Afghan women who set themselves on fire trying to commit suicide. It made me very emotional to think that a woman's life would be better if she set herself on fire and died. Life is not always beautiful. I do not want to close my eyes and forget about others in the world and I wonder WHY?. Let's pray for a better world for everyone.To read the story go here:New York Times

Fall Harvest at My Home

Welcome to my home. I love autumn. Join me as it spreads. In the Foyer. In the Living Room. Art Closet. In the Dining Room. The Home Office and In the kitchen among the pheasants.

AEDM - Converse Love

I love my Converse All Stars. For a long time I admired them on everyone else. My teen thought I was just trying to be young, but I had to explain to her that these were out when l was young. So who cares what young people think I purchased 2 pair.

I use to have a green velvet dress that I loved.

AEDM - Face 23 Daydreaming

I use to avoid putting facial features on my art because they looked cartoonist which is not what I was attempting. I've been challenging myself to not give up and put more detail into my faces.

AEDM- Wedding Day Blues

This is not my best work. I'm currently in a slump. On your wedding day you may get cold feet about what you are getting into, bcause you really don't know what to expect. I got married at a young age and I'm happy to announce that it has been 28 years that we have been together on October 29th. I still feel like we still have so much to share together.

AEDM - Two Sisters

Today I enter in Art Everyday Month. So I am a day behind and I am not feeling very creative today. This is all that was in me, a drawing I did in my sketchbook last year. Today I added color.
