Roses…

I love taking pics of flowers. My neighborhood is blessed with a little park where there are abundant roses for photographers to choose from. I also have a neighbor who has a knack for growing beautiful flowers. Here’s a pic I did of a rose from his yard. I changed the color for a different effect.I If you’re interested in this, or any of my other artwork, please contact me at artbymel@att.net. Thank you.

These almost ended up in the trash

There are some drawings I’ve created that I’ve thought of throwing away because I just didn’t like the way they turned out. They were either too ‘busy’, or I made a huge mistake in them. I don’t like to just throw them away, so I keep them to cut and use in my art journals.

Some of these are terribly messy, if you ask me. Though, I have yet to create a masterpiece. One of these days, I will. I personally think my best drawing was ‘Carousel’, the abstract piece where a carousel horse showed up by itself. The link to that post:

Here are the ones I wouldn’t normally be posting. Most of these will end up in my art journal, used as backgrounds.
