"Mr. Rogers Big Mistake"

This is a little weird drawing I did of Mr. Rogers, he always was so happy go lucky and really was a nice guy in real life also. He is trying to be friends with the Godzilla-like monster and doing his best to be neighborly. But the creature has other ideas I guess.

"Won't you be my neighbor?" Not!!

This I did with prismacolor pencils which measures 5" x 7".

PEEP and Chocolate Bunny "Friendship Farewell"

This is an ACEO or art trading card I did with an Easter theme to it. I used the traditional pink marshmellow PEEP and chocolate rabbit. It is titled "Friendship Farewell". Here is my little story to go with it.

"They toasted their friendship and bid their farwells....as tomorrow was the BIG hunt
and the children would be after their heads".

I know it is a bit morbid but that's what I came up with when I was drawing it...sorry it couldn't have been more cutesy. This one I did with prismacolor pencils and measures 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".


I am in a local art group named "Art and About", you can see our blog at http://www.artandabout54220.blogspot.com/. At our monthly meeting we have a theme that we picked the month before and each person does their version of that theme. Last month it was "tulip", so this was my version of a tulip. I kind of made it on the retro side with the pink flamingo and of course it had to have a spaceship in it as I am into the alien thing. This piece I did with prismacolor pencils and measures 5" x 7".

A Companion of Diana

This is from the blog "Different Strokes from Different Folks", check it out at http://differentstrokesfromdifferentfolks.blogspot.com/. They have a bi-weekly challenge of a photo that you redo in your own style, as you can see I like to use a lot of color. This challenge was of a marble sculpture of one of the goddess Diana's companions, a nymph and her hound. The marble sculpture was done by Jean-Louis Lemoyne, titled 'A Companion of Diana', commissioned by Louis XIV in 1724. Diana was goddess of the moon and of the hunt, this nymph is one of Diana's companions, with her hound. This sculpture belongs to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
