Red Delicious

A grouping of Red Delicious Apples.
I took the reference photos for these back 
in 2008. Having a slow start to get back to my art,
I finally put them to paper.

It's somewhat of a series, with more to come.

Done in pen and ink with transparent watercolors
on 140 lb bright white hot press Arches paper.
Crawfordsville Bridge Oregon

I had the pleasure of seeing this covered bridge 
on a trip arranged by Bradley T. Waring.
I had never been to Oregon. 
Part of the sight seeing tour was this covered bridge.
It had been moved and was located
 close to a residence that had a beautiful garden
specializing in roses.
This is close to Brownsville Oregon.
If you get the chance, stop by and visit the folks with the garden.
The hubby wrote a really cool history book based on
local facts and story telling

I had fun with the piece trying to get ready for an art show locally.
Not sure if I will make it,
everyday has it's challenges.

Done in pen and ink with transparent watercolors

Clemons Antiques

Found in a small burg in Indiana,on a road trip to Indianapolis,
the old sign was quite appealing. 
Closed long ago but still kept the small town charm.
It was many years ago
that I came upon this sign.
Finally got around to putting it to paper.

Pen and ink with
transparent watercolor on
140 lb bright white hot press Arches.

Heartland Series  1

This started as a bookmark for my daughter Hilary
and ended up being a slightly large piece.
I still need to do the bookmark,
especially since her birthday is up and coming.

I want this to be a series about the midwest,
 especially the farming communities.

"Life on the Farm "

It was done on Arches 140 lb bright white hot press paper,
with Pigma Micron pens and transparent watercolor.
Image size is approx. 7" x 13"
