A  Beautiful Scottish Lass

This wonderful Woman, Phyllis Allen never is still.
She is always moving just like the wind, adapting with the elements.
I was inspired, as many people and photos move us as Artists,
to do this quick  pen and ink of Phyllis.
Even though she is standing still, with the wind in her hair
and the sun light in her eyes,
she still seems to be moving.
My credit to whom ever took the photo,
without which I would not have had the inspiration
to draw, thank you.

Aye, a beautiful Lass !

   Special Christmas Present

This is a special gift for a young boy that loves John Deere Tractors. It is a pen and ink with watercolor. I discovered through his Mom that he is just completely facinated with John Deere Tractors. I still need to date the tractor for her son, he'll want the details.  It is a John Deere Model B. It will be matted, framed and ready for Christmas.

The farm in the background is an historic farm to Elkhart County, named "The Centennial Farm".

The art is 13 1/8" x 11 1/8" and is on 140 lb
D'Arches bright white hot press watercolor paper
