Finished Art Work
« on: January 15, 2009, 10:52:10 PM »
Hey kiddies!
   Well we're down to the wire. Only a few days left, then it's heading home time! On Tuesday I'll go in for the first of my monthly infusions, and after that I am free to go. I did call ahead and made sure that they had a TV in the infusion room. Don't want to miss the Inaguration for anything. While I have been recovering here in California, I brought along some colored pencils to try my hand at doing some art work using them. I had read an article discussing different techniques to use with them, and decided to give it a whirl. I've done some small sized colored pencil drawings before, but this is the largest and most ambitious thing I have done. I think it came off pretty well. It made for a less tedious recovery, that's for sure. Have a great day everyone, and thanks for looking.

Hi Carl

I'm glad you are finally getting to go home, I bet everyone (two and four legged ones) are anxious to have you home safe and sound.

As always I love your art work, it looks like it has been done with water color pencils..are they water color?, I have thought about using them but have never been brave enough to try, a lot of patience is needed by all accounts...the painting is fabulous, I would love to try something like that one of these days but in Acrylics.

Look forward to catching up with you.

   No, they were just regular old colored pencils. I have watercolor pencils, but I've not used them yet. I will soon though, and you'lll be the first to see.
