IF ~ Magnify

Illustration Friday's theme for this week is Magnify. I don't feel like sleeping tonight so I decided to doodle this....

Rosa brought her Magifying glass to the Aquarium so that she can see even the littlest creatures.

ATC's ATC's and more ATC's

Here are a few more ATC's I have made for Trades @ ATCSFORALL.COM

Okay so flying birds aren't one of my strong points but I am getting better at my mice.

Todays drawings

I have done this one for a 'skinny' swap at I have called it 'deep in thought'. This is where I would rather be... dipping my toes in a happy pond in the corner of our property!

This lil guy I have made for Rachel who has traded me a few origami ATCs. I hope she likes it.

I am also using him for IF ~ Caution. (caution ... if you see a rat doing tricks in the park ... DON'T FEED HIM CHEESE!)

These two I just did while waiting for my Daughters to finish with teaching riding lessons and horsemanship to a troop of Boy Scouts.
The bird is 'Midnight Flight' and the pig and ladybug 'New Friends'
I hope you all had an 'artsy' day.
Keep on Sketchin!

A new ARTSY twist

**This just in.... the fair has been cancelled due to several inches of rain being dumped on Grayson street. Stay tuned for this fair to be rescheduled**

I have been asked to do some 'Face Painting' at a local summer fest "Groovin on Grayson". I have never done this before so it should be quite interesting. AND FUN!!

Here are some designs I drew up after surfin the web a bit.

I am a little nervous but excited too.
Wish me luck!!!

Who says life has to end at 40

This weekend is my sisters 40th b-day and we are all planning a surprise party for her in Fl. My oldest suggested we get a Grim Reaper for the door, well, they couldn't find one they liked so they asked me to paint one.

Here is what I came up with.

This Diva Princess says "Back off Grim Reaper, my life has just begun!!!"

Whimsey boy ATC's

I had a lot of fun creating this lil guys, I created the first two during the writing of a book I am working on for someone special. The third I did on a larger scale ... it resembles my 12 yr old son. He loves to sing although he won't admit it to anyone. heehee
Let me know what you think!
