Randy’s Chairs

Filed under: DRAWINGS — Colby @ 9:47 am

I was at my sister’s house and walked out onto their patio room with my brother-in-law. I thought the way the light was shining in and casting shadows was interesting so I whipped out my iPhone and took a photo. My brother-in-law gave me a strange look. I said, “What, you’ve never taken pictures of chairs before?” He said, “No. No I haven’t it.” So this drawing, done on my iPad, is dedicated to him.

Veteran’s Day 2018

Filed under: DRAWINGS,History,Religious — Colby @ 1:15 pm

My church asked for a cover for their Veteran’s Day service.

In addition to the United States flag I included:

Dog tags to represent our military veterans. Poppies to illustrate the hope for an end to all wars. Military service seals for each branch of service (as gold medallions). References to two bible verses from John 15 and Psalm 18.

I came across the term “dryad” the other day and felt compelled to come up with my own version so I conjured up this creature on my iPad just for the fun of it.

Loft Playroom Mural

Filed under: MURALS — Colby @ 3:10 pm

The GrandKids were wanting a new mural for their recently remodeled playroom. When they were little I could paint whatever I wanted and they’d be happy. Now they’re old enough to make specific requests. And I mean SPECIFIC.

GrandDaughter wanted a volleyball player silhouette with the background melding from the blue of the walls to the green.

GrandSon wanted game system logos with a digital looking transition.

Then they decided they wanted additional smaller images around the room. GrandDaughter came up with a scenario. Hefty Smurf and Smurfette holding up a volleyball, phone rings, he answers, she can’t hold up the volleyball by herself. Meanwhile, Papa Smurf looks on.

GrandSon wanted vintage video games scattered around: Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Q*Bert.
