9 . 10 . 2015 ....Watercolor   9" x 13"


9 . 10 . 2015 ...Liquid graphite and Pastel sketch ... just putting color and texture to a piece of left-over paper...  I do a lot of these small pieces with mixed results.  Sometimes they turn out and sometimes they don't.  Working with the Derivan liquid pencil ... putting down a few marks, letting it dry a tad, adding a few spots of pastel here and there, and then with an old hardware store brush I start pushing the various shades of color around .... just letting it go where it goes..

9 . 7 . 2015   My wife hooks rugs .... This one is actually a wall hanging that she did awhile back of one of my paintings  .....  I think her work here looks much better then the painting I did of this scene.
"....I love the year's decline, and love through rustling yellow shades to range, O'er stubble land, 'neath willow grove, To pause upon each varied change: ......   Autumn by John Clare, from the Village Minstrel, 1821

9 . 7 . 2015   ...Watercolor 9" x 13" (studio work)  ... similar to the painting below, but with some soon to be October color.  I'm getting ready for the autumn season that's just around the corner ... especially at the higher elevations..
