Ball and Jack

Here is another twist on "Ball and Jacks". I came across this little tiny real crystal ball in an out of the way little shop and I purchased it because I knew it would make a great addition to my artwork. Here is my first offering featuring this little treasure. 6x6 Color Pencil Painting. Why am I calling it a painting if it is a color pencil drawing? Because, it is done in layers with the color pencil and then using mineral spirits to spread out the color with a brush or swab giving it a washed effect, more like painting than your typical color pencil effect.

I also wanted to let everyone know that my new web site is up and running. It features videos teaching different aspects of art. If anyone would like a free sneak peek, just email me. One of the lessons on the site is on painting glass in oil paints. I did a sped up version of the the painting progress on You Tube. Take a look and let me know what you think. The new web site address is .
