Popcorn

2.5"x3.5", artcard

Drawing with a pencil feels natural to me. Can't get more basic than a pencil and a piece of paper. It's the first thing they give you in kindergarten and it's the first thing I reach for when I feel the need to create. :) This is a very small drawing of my first harvested purple popcorn that I grew in my front yard. It might be the only ear that I get this season and although it's really tiny, it's a pretty one, isn't it? I'm drying it right now and maybe in a few weeks, I'll pop it. That will be an adventure!

Glad to see you've posted such a wonderful piece of work. The shading is terrific. More please in the New Year.

Sigs: Yeah, each kernel is a deep reddish purple. I've never had purple popcorn so i'm looking forward to it.

Jennifer: Thank you! :)

Joan: Mahalo! I will be sure to post more soon. :) Thank you for your encouragement and support, even when I experience a lull. :)

Happy New Year everyone!

I agree.. pencil as the first thing to reach for! This is a lovely piece, well-observed and obviously a "personal" subject.

Jo said...

Hiya Jo!

You know...each time I check out your blog, I'm even more impressed by your work. I always saw your work as being quite wonderful, but your expertise with pencil has me quite astounded. Jo...you got the artistic talent in the family, Miles got the hair...guess I got the looks. Fair trade I suppose... LOL Love you!

Your lil bro...

PS...give Kanoe a scratch for me.
