Here are two more scarecrows to continue the Friendly Scarecrow series. I really like the one where he is jumping in the leaves!
I had sent my online art portfolio to Porterfield’s Fine Art and the president of the company sent me back some encouraging words within 10 minutes of sending it to them. He suggested I try acrylics for more color saturation as art licensing companies look for saturated color. He said he could not use my art this point in time. but it was “Awfully good”. I’ll take it! Usually you get nothing back but a rejection letter. This was nice.
He did like my scarecrow and my santa holding a present, which explains the reason for all the scarecrows. The more the better! Hope you like them.
Well, here i am again, and this time I have 3 pictures I have finished and hopefully ready for the portfolio.
The Piggy Pudding picture makes me feel like I still have to add something, whether it is pockets on the apron or corner pieces of pines and berries. I may still have to add to this one. But the other 2 I am sure are finished. I hope you like them…it took me quite awhile…watercolor!!!! Enjoy!
I have already posted Friendly Scarecrow No. 1 awhile back. I am trying to do a series of 4 pictures because that is what the art licensing companies look for. Now, I just have one more to go. But for now, here is 2 and 3. And yes, it has been kind of time-consuming, but worth it. Hope you like these guys!
Well, I finally went back to doing watercolor. I have been away from it for some time, and I love the way they look. The colors are so bright and you can be rather spontaneous with them as well. I love pastels and colored pencil, but this just seemed like a lot of fun for me. And it was like riding a bike, it all came back to me…and believe me I was scared!
Now I want to do a series of this little guy and see how they look. Everyone around here that has seen this picture has loved it so far. I hope you like this little guy, because I guarantee there will be more to follow.
Hello! I figured as I am waiting to finish other drawings in the works..I will showcase an older one.
This is a colored pencil drawing with the quote that says it all. I really believe this one is true. I really love the way the picture came out. As soon as I read the quote, I knew how I wanted to illustrate it. So here it is… Enjoy.
Hello! I just added this one to my portfolio. I have been trying to add as many seasonal categories as I can to get a good variety of designs to showcase.
I really like this one because I really like the angle I went for. It’s a little different from anything I have done. I think I want to create more pictures drawn at different angles, instead of the typical straight view. It’s a little more interesting. The colors came out great and I used the smooth side of the paper, instead of the rough waffle-like side that leaves the funny pattern in your picture.
Anyway, I know it’s almost Spring, but hope you like my scarecrow for Fall.
Poor scarecrow! I don’t think he’s quite caught on why he is not scaring those scarecrows away, and I think he just gave up! Maybe it’s because he doesn’t look so scary. Maybe he’s just a little too cute! Oh well, maybe he needed some friends, anyway.
You know what they say…”If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!”
Autumn is upon us, and I am ready to take my Autumn In New England CD out once again and listen… and dream. Here is a lovely piece of music on that CD. Oh, I just want to cry when I hear it. The memories of my kids and the fun things we used to do all come swarming back to me. I think I may just grab them now anyway and force them to go on a pumpkin ride with me…ha-ha!
I just love Autumn in New England. I can think of nowhere else I would rather be this time of year. I want to pick apples, go on pumpkin rides, go antiquing, make a scarecrow. I’m just a kid all over again, and I love it. I’ll share it all with my kids, too. I have this music(CD) I had bought at a drugstore many years ago called “Autumn in New England” and I would play it in my car driving with the kids to all the cool “Fallish” events we wou … Read More
