Slim Pickins

Got a new toy!

I wasn’t crazy about my old tablet, very basic and I couldn’t get the fine detail I wanted, so I finally broke down and bought a Wacom Intuos Draw Tablet off of Amazon for about $80.

I love it! It’s much more sensitive than the old one and I can get a lot of detail out of it and I love the color!

So what’s the first thing I draw? A camel of course! I did a painting similar to this ages ago, back in high school art class. All monotone.  It got lost in one of the moves so I’m thinking of making another one with the tablet.

Now I just gotta find some more time to play with it…

Oil on canvas board.
A long time ago and far, far away… Had a lot of time on my hands lately, so I started dragging out my art & supplies. Found this hiding in a folder. It’s sort of a doodle in oils I did in ’98. Something out of my head ~ based on all the trips we made through Tennessee and Alabama. I’m thinking I need to start a new project….

Old Sketches – #13 Nazgul

Still unpacking boxes, found some old sketches. I was really into the Lord of the Rings as a teen (books, not movie) and my art then reflected it. I was also toying with different ways to sign my name. Margaret is my middle name.

Antique Embroidery Art

My old “hand embroidered” Triumph Motorcycle Jean Jacket
Original “OOAK” no pattern, no photo,
just out of my head, a lot of embroidery thread
and tons of patience!
It took me over sixs weeks to do ~
20 years ago.
(I had painted a matching horse on our
’70 Triumph Bonneville Motorcycle tank too
but sadly, we no longer have the bike).
