I created this piece in color and was not happy with the colors I had chosen and decided to place it in my Photo program of my Apple computer and create a black and white image. I really like the black and white image best. There is always more to do with a "Smudge!" Give it a try!
May your holidays be Merry and Bright! To create this simple image in a "smudge" all you need to work with is a negative rectangle, and a negative teardrop shape. After I created the image I scanned it and printed it out on my computer and took a favorite silver pen and created the lines and squiggles. Imagine what you can do with these 2 simple shapes. Give it a try! Smudging is fun!
Merry Christmas Everyone! This piece created was scanned onto the computer and printed out in color. I took my Silver Ink pen and drew circles, pattern's and lines on top of the ornaments, added dots in the air space and now sharing it with you. Enjoy a fabulous Holiday season! Peace, Health and Prosperity!
A School of Fish was created on a gray speckled paper. It is fun to work with colored paper sometimes. Give it a try on your favorite colored paper, and send it my way to post and share! The line in the middle is because I was making 2 separate images to create book marks for my Fish friends.

This piece, El Capitan of Yosemite Valley in CA been entered into the Latimer Art Club Exhibit and Sale taking place now until the end of July during ARTOWN in Reno, NV at the Wilbur May Museum. I had the wonderful opportunity a few years back to be hired as an Artist-in-Residence to teach art classes at Yosemite, a magical natural wonderland and state park. This image is taken from a photograph. I added the magnificent clouds all created in the Oil Pastel Smudge technique! If you have the opportunity to visit Yosemite, take it! A most fabulous spot on our planet!
