More Fall Leaves

Yesterday I was on the Westminster College campus and I found some leaves on the ground that I really liked. They were really bright and colorful and an interesting shape. So, I picked some up and brought them home to paint them:



I put veins in the leaves on the first one, but I didn't really like that so I left them off the second one. I think there is a secret to painting veins on leaves that I have yet to discover. I never like how it turns out when I try to paint the veins on leaves.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
