This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

FINALLY FINISHED (Break of Day)


I finally finished the elk picture for my son in law's Christmas present.  Decided to call it Break of Day...

Looking at it on the blog, I don't like the blue in the trees, they look too turquoise... so I may have to tweak it a bit...

My art teacher told, "Not to touch it". But, she also told us, "If you find yourself looking at something and bugging you, then you have to change it."


I had given him Something in the Wind, which was the Big Horn Ram I did, so this will make a good pairing.
              
This is a pic of the other one I gave him... so you don't have to look back under my labels...


This was the first colored pencil drawing I did.

I learned so much for our instructor.  She is such a talented Artist.

First thing tomorrow, I am off to the printer... after I fix the trees...

Am so relieved to get it finished.  I just hate to have commitments hanging over my head. This one is two months past due...
