Working while away

Well, our internet provider debate still is not resolved, but I've been working while away. Giving and correcting tests, updating my art history knowledge from Romanticism on and preparing for next year. With the exception of the horse, which was done as a Christmas gift, here's a sampling of my little art world. And yes, it was still snowing earlier this week, although it's not sticking now, and the flowers are starting to bloom despite it all. God's cycle of life overcomes the temporal weather and I'm so glad--it means we won't have snow forever!

From Botticelli's "Madonna of the Magnificat", this is my drawing, but it is also the next assignment for my students.

A fabric postcard sent to Scotland. I didn't fit in the envelope--c'est la vie.

A Christmas gift for my sister who rides and trains horses, gives lessons and competes in dressage.

A study in colored pencil focusing on values.

The same picture only now being worked in acrylics and experimenting with underpainting.

A gift for a friend in progress.

In a corner of the world far, far away...

I've been away from the computer a lot lately due to internet access problems. I should be back soon... Is it still snowing where you live? It still comes and goes here. This winter is now the second snowiest on record for our area. But my crocus are blooming. Wishing many flowers to you. :-)
