Pond Frog

A new picture....this one is coloured pencil on a pine block...

I am loving the slightly darker tones that my coloured pencils are getting when worked on raw wood.

I think in the middle of all this snow, cold & head pain, my body is craving to relax in the embracing warmth of summer, hence this summery image in the middle of winter, ha ha...


(The next 2 shots turned out abit light...)
The original is 6 x 6 inches and will be for sale at the Gallery I show at here in North Bay...but if your interested in purchasing it just shoot me an email at mandysaile@bijouswhimsy.com



Prints will be available in my ArtFire Shop and my Etsy Shop...


What do you think?  is is making you long for summers warmth too....

I think this is my favorite of yours yet. I just love it! And I've been craving summer-ness as well.

I hope your head starts to forget about pain soon. It must be so awful, these constant headaches!

Loving the frog - you are so, very talented. I don't know how you have the patience for all that beautiful detail!

Oh Thanks Michele, it isn't easy that's for sure, ha ha...I tell myself not to complain or mention it too much on my blog but than it is definately a part of my creative journey isn't it so these days I am abit more honest about my struggle as a chronic/acute migraine sufferer.

And Thanks Lauren, I am really pleased with this piece as well...at first I was a tad nervous that people would find it too dark BUT I love it and knowing that atleast one other person out there does too makes me feel great.

Hugs to you both.
