Family, random objects and unruly subjects

Hello! I"ve not been around a lot lately. I seem to be very busy doing many things that lead me nowhere.  Some of these things are enjoyable, though, so it's not as bad as it sounds.
My brother and his girl friend came last week. This is him in the middle.

On the right is his girl friend Charlotte. I drew very quick sketches of them, and then my brother drew a very quick sketch of me. You can see it on the left. I added the earrings but the rest is all his.



These are a few things I drew since the beginning of the year. Things sitting on my table, and things in the street. Yes, I've been sketching outside where there's other people around! I chose the street carefully. There was no one around. Desert place, closed houses.

One of my orchids.

And quick sketches while waiting for my daughter at the horse farm where she rides. Horses move a lot, unlike orchids. Interesting exercice, though, I think I'll try again. When it's warmer, maybe.

Love the horse studies and the orchids! My orchid lost its flowers in the sketch phase, long before I could color it :(

I love the sketches of your brother and his girlfriend and like that he joined in also. Your coloured paintings of the orchids are excellent. I also love the horse studies and the way you have done them.

You and your brother don't even look related! I think the sketches of your brother and his girlfriend are great. The horses blow me away - tough shape to do. I love the orchid watercolor.

That's almost a life lesson- horses move a lot, unlike orchids. I like that!
Isn't it cool when people we know draw for us? It's like a quick glimpse into how far your art has progressed. Drawing well takes time and practice... and you draw well!
And then there are your beautiful colors. Your colors always move me, like horses.

Great sketches... including the one your brother did of you. The horse studies are excellent.

These are wonderful! I've sketched horses, mostly as a young girl, and I know they can be difficult! Your colors are so vivid and refreshing, always! And I have to say, your brother looks like he would be a movie star!
