8 x 11 Pen & Ink
This piece was done as a fundraiser for a recovery facility called "Set Free"
Families would stay there until able to be on their own. I decided to draw a couple of the children  watching the Koi fish in a little pond they have.

One of the things I like to do is add color but only sparingly to add a focus impact to the picture.

But I wasn't sure which way I wanted to go. So I decided to make copies of the drawing on watercolor paper and try a few different ways.

I decided to have the one with the pond in color framed for the event.

8  x  11 Pen, Ink & Watercolor
" Chez Marie " is a small cafe in Paris very close to Montmartre. I thought I would post this drawing I just finished for CHRisTMAS.
First the place is red and second it is called Chez Marie and I thought it could be the new version for the stable where christ was born,
" At Mary's place " 
After all he was put in a trough and that's where you put the food you give to the animals, since he is feeding us still I thought it a perfect correlation.

BTW   This piece will be features on my general art blog also

" MONtmARTre "

                                                     8  x  11          Pen & Ink

This is from my vacation with my daughter to Paris. I was showing her where her grandmother lived ! The only thing I can say is I hope everyone can have the opportunity to go there at least ounce in your life. We went in the off season and the advantage for me is that I could see the architecture of each building since there were no leaves on the trees, like in this drawing I could see the Sacre Coeur  in the distance. Otherwise it would be obscured by the leaves !
