"A Little Peek..."

of my artwork in Nina Johansson's book "Multitudes.
(click on images to enlarge)

A bit of zen like freedom...


A bit of calligraphy and color play...

...and a bit of the ancient southwest desert...
a step back in time to one of the first art exchanges ever! LOL :)

An artistic array of marks, colors, styles, and charm
fills Nina's little Maruman
"Multitude."
I don't want to let her go...
as that will finalize of my portion of our Maruman exchange.
But professionalism calls...and Multitude flies again.
I now will wait like the rest of our faithful fans
until
the last three books cross the deep blues seas
and safely arrive home.

wow! I wanted to enlarge the top one bit it didn't...these are gorgeous as usual.

I actually bought a book on cactus today so I can start learning how to draw the beauties that they are. Our local arborteum LA County, is going to have a cactus show in two more weeks. I plan on getting lots of shots.

we went there today and ...oh I got lots of sketching material to work on from my photographs.

Oh, these are gorgeous. I can't seem to click to embiggen the first one, Margaret, but the intricacy of your pen lines and the beauty of those greens and blues are just killing me for a closer look!

Jennifer Lawson said...

Wow, these are beautiful Margaret and they are just the peeks! I can't wait to see more. Now I must find Anita's Maruman packed somewhere in my luggage and begin my pages...

These books will truly be wonderful treasures for each of us to have!
