March 23/24: Grocery cart/Store: The three little piggies get a FREE ride in the grocery cart @ Wolf's Market.

Piggies get a FREE ride at Wolf's Market
I like the overall image here, except for the Wolf's expression....too scarey and he's not actually looking at the piggies. He should be.

This is one of those images that really calls for the whole story. Guess I know what I'll be doing this week.

March 22: At the Movies (front row)

At the movies (front row)
This was my attempt to show three characters sharing a box of popcorn on the front row of a slightly scarey movie. It always amazes me that I can see things in a scanned copy that I don't see in the original. Good reminder to scan my sketches to see them in a new light. I think we used to hold our work up to a mirror to do the same thing in art classes. (Didn't notice Miss Kitty's gaze was different than the other two until I scanned this image) Wish I'd bumped the contrast up a few more notches.

March 13 - 17: In church, Conflict in the art room, and Sharing on the playground.

In Church
Conflict in the Art Room
I doubt if I'd use any of these images in my portfolio, too many mistakes, trite representations and
drawing issues but I believe all drawing helps you reach your goal, so I continue "Doodling". ("In Church" was inspired by discussing problems with children in church with younger friends and family. I loved to swing tandem with my sister when I was young and of course, "Conflict in the Art Room" comes from teaching Art K-6.

Feb. 23 -28: Mary Colleen, Irish Dancing Piglet

Mary Colleen, Irish Dancing Piglet, Composite
Mary Colleen, Irish dancing piglet, drawing with black and white Derwent pencil on gray paper. I tinted it with green filter to honor St. Patrick's Day. Learned a lesson: "Don't rely on your memory when working on consistency." The plaid has some variation I didn't intend.
