guest artist & more sketches…

One thing that most of you do not know is that my DH is an artist.  I’m trying to talk him into doing his own blog.  We are redoing a half bath in our house. The new color is a lavender gray color.   There was an ugly wooden framed mirror hanging on the wall.  I like to recycle what we have, so, I asked him to do his magic on the frame.  He likes to do lots of geometric shapes in his work….here’s the frame after he finished with it…I waiting for it to completely dry before putting the mirror back into the frame.  I really like how it turned out:



Here are three sketches with my Progresso woodless graphite pencil:





 I think these were a combination of mechanical and woodless graphite:



I put some color on this sketch:


That’s all for now…Have a creative rest of the week!!!

    You’re right…I didn’t know your husband was an artist. The frame is great! I like the geometric shapes. Your faces are a good compliment to the geometric designs. I love the curvy, flowing lines you use.

    Killer Frame by the Hubster! very unique and quite interesting.
    Sketches are looking fantastic. Your eyes have a light behind them. BTW, i really liked that wild man you shared previously – pretty cool.
