Summer of Color

This week the challenge is baseball nut which is vanilla ice cream with ribbons of black raspberry and studded with cashews.  I had some fun with these colors.

My first piece is a sketch that I colored with Prismacolors.  It is from a Lifebook lesson on how to draw whimsical animals.  Here is my puppy.

The next piece is a watercolor painting that I did in my journal.  I used pearlescent watercolors so she has a lot of shimmer.  



 The last piece is a small quilt that is different than my other two.  I used strips in the colors and twisted and sewed them down.  The ends are left free to flutter in the breeze.
Now I am off to finish preparing for my daughter's open house in four days.  After that I will be back to creating.  Have a good week.

Lovely pieces of work - the quilt is fascinating, I love the twists in the fabrics giving it such lovely texture. And the drawings are so delicate and pretty - cute puppy, and lovely shading on the girl.
