Change of Pace

Change of Pace

Taking a break away from painting.  This was an entry in  my journal on March 2nd.  Using my favorite pen the Rotring ArtPen.  Love the tones that can be achieved with very little work or planning. So more or less it is meant to be just that Fun.  Still waiting for the lovely weather that is yet to come.  Yesterday Mike and I went to Trader Joe's and I purchased lovely flowers and a Shamrock plant. Tomorrow we will celebrate my honeys birthday.  My son and family and Mike's sister will be over for dinner.  Mike decided to make corn beef and cabbage in celebration of St. Pat's day a few days ahead of time.  My sons name is Patrick, so we celebrate St.Pat's day. Happy Painting everyone.

  1. Une belle idée que de fêter la Ste Patrick ! Joyeuse fête à votre fils...
    J'aime beaucoup les dessins de votre carnet de croquis. Très printanier. Les utiliserez-vous pour la peinture ?
    Gros bisous

  2. I have always liked sketches for their freshness and spontaneity. These are lovely and there is a beautiful sensitivity to them.
    It was great reading about your successful son. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed it.

  3. Great sketches, Joan - I use Rotring Isograph pens all the time, but never tried the art pen. It must be great to have a chef in the family.
