The beginning...


The first step in drawing a portrait is the layout. It's very important that this be as accurate as possible because it is the foundation for the entire drawing.

I'll be working on this portrait over the next couple of months.

*I am learning to draw this portrait through the dvd series...How To Draw A Portrait by Darrel Tank*

A Birthday Card for Mema.




Heart Of Hearts
My grandmother is quite a remarkable woman,
She's a unique combination of warmth, kindness laughter and love
She ignores each and every one of my faults, helps me pursue my dreams,
She lauds my every success; she means nothing but the world to me,
My grandmother is blessed with the wisdom of a great teacher, maybe even a great preacher,
She is as sincere as my truest friend, and showers unconditional love, like a mother,
She's my everything, I admire her, respect her, and love her much too much,
In my heart, dearest grandma, you will always be, the dearest one to me,
You are the most precious person in my life, you really are,
The shining star, the crazy diamond, with a light shines oh-so-far,
My dearest grandma, heart of hearts, here's wishing you a very happy birthday,
Your love and memories, for me, I'm hoping are here to stay. ~Unknown

Watercolor Flowers





Flowers
  by: Albert Laighton (1829-1887)

They are autographs of angels, penned
In Nature's green-leaved book, in blended tints,
Borrowed from rainbows and the sunset skies,
And written everywhere--on plain and hill,
In lonely dells, 'mid crowded haunts of men;
On the broad prairies, where no eye save God's
May read their silent, sacred mysteries.

Thank God for flowers! they gladden human hearts;
Seraphic breathings part their fragrant lips
With whisperings of Heaven.

Welcome!

Welcome to Inside Out! The place where I will be posting my artwork and who knows what else relating to art! I don't have any artwork up yet, but in the meantime have fun looking at the few pages I created. :) :)
