Three Muses - Black and White

I've had houseguests for a week, and haven't had time for art, so (again) I decided to post a spread from my Sketchbook Project journal for this year.   I guess the fleshtone of the faces will have to serve as the dollop of color!    Thanks for looking.  (The faces are copies of newspaper cartoon caricatures).

Take a Word - Tattered

I've had houseguests this week, and no time for art.  I'm participating in the Sketchbook Project 2013 this year, and I decided to post this photo of a spread from that journal for this week's Take A Word challenge..   This page is done in pan pastels, and for some reason they don't scan true to color.  Sorry about that!  The images are ATC size, and tucked into pockets.    If you're not familiar with the Sketchbook Project, have a look.  It's an exciting and fun project.  You might like to participate!

Sunday Postcard - Travel

The folks at Sunday Postcard have chosen Travel as the theme this week.   I have a "thing" for vintage autos, but I can't remember where I got this one.   The driver is a figment of my imagination, and the map is from an old calendar.   Thanks, ladies, for a fun challenge!

Collage Obsession - Oriental

For 2200 years, beneath a field in China, 8000 terracotta warriors in full battle regalia guarded the tomb of Qin Shi Huang, the first emporer of China. Villagers digging for a well in 1974 discovered this astounding archeological site. Each warrior is about 6 ft tall, and no two are alike. They are accompanied by horses and wooden chariots, as well as other artifacts. Who knows what mysteries might be buried beneath our feet?

Take a Word - Memories

I had fun with this, foraging for ephemera and a treasured old photo, taken in about 1943 or so.  In the background is the one-room school I attended.  My friend, Kenly, and I have "Old Kate" hitched to a home made wagon, taking a cool drink to the men working in the field.   My life encompasses a quantum leap from a time before electricity and indoor plumbing to my life of comfort in a large city today.  Oh my, how times have changed!   Thanks, Deann, for occasioning my trip down memory lane!
