Portraits, Paintings, and Sketches

For today’s post I decided to deviate from my usual posts and spend most of this one showing you some pictures I’ve drawn, painted, etc. over the past years. 🙂  Since I was little, I’ve always enjoyed cutting, pasting, drawing, stenciling, painting, and coloring. In the past few months I’ve taken up a new area of sketches by drawing several of my friends (portraits).  I really have enjoyed it, and I plan to do more (I’m in the middle of one now, but it’s not done, so you won’t get to see it until my next art post). 🙂

I’ll start with some artwork that is several years old (from 2006 and 2007).

Monopoly (probably drawn in 2007 or 2008)

For the next few pictures, I have no dates.  I’m guessing I drew them around the same time as the drawings above.

And now for some artwork created in 2008.

And now for some drawings from this year!!  Starting with a tree (I love to study trees, but I’m still learning how to take what I see and capture it with my pencil).  🙂
