Just a Minute
11" x 14"
Colored Pencil on Pastel Board

Finally finished with this one. Now all that's left to do is color the outside edge (not necessary, but I think it looks better), spray it, attach a hanger or purchase a stand for it. I am really happy with the way this turned out. Hopefully, my son will pass it down to his children. For now, though, it's Mama's.

Almost Finished

I have been taking classes and, as a result, haven't had too much time for anything creative. I decided that I was going to do my best to get this finished before classes start again. They start on the 11th, so that doesn't give me much more time...but, I think I can finish this. After that, I am planning on going back to a drawing that I started over a year ago, and see how far I get. Hopefully I'll get it finished soon. There is no way to get it finished in between this term and the next, so it may take another year-smile. So it doesn't become jinxed, I am not even going to mention anything else about the next drawing until it's finished and ready to post. I plan to take photos of the continuing stages. Well, that's enough typing for this post, hopefully there will be a final entry for this portrait before too long.
