Red Smudge

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Colby @ 4:55 pm

I have no idea how old this is. I recently discovered it in my file. Over the years the chalk has been smudged. Not the original intent in this sketch but I think it adds a nice touch to an otherwise simple drawing.

Hurricane Harvey reminded me of a cartoon I posted several years ago. I rarely re-post anything but it seemed appropriate. While my friends and family in central Texas and along the Gulf coast are being hammered by a record-setting storm I’m having to go out and water my patio plants.

We offer our prayers to those impacted by this hurricane and to safety of the first responders.

Another oldie. I haven’t had a chance to draw and paint lately. I’ve been keeping my grandkids. And loving every minute of it.

Found art. This is a really old one. I think I did this in college. It’s a tiny one. Only about 3 ½” high.
