“why do you draw with a mouse and not a tablet”

“why don’t you use a good digital camera and not your laptop/camera phone”

I have been powerfully busy, and mostly with projects I can’t show yet, in addition to eleventy billion remarques (tiny original paintings) for my duck stamp prints. I am working on non-personal stuff every possible moment of the day that I can. However, during times that I can’t work on my assignments (such as during a prolonged power outage, or when I am not home), I have some time to draw, so I have been doodling dragons and chickens, as these are things I can pull out of my bu–… er… head. I slap some watercolor on them when I have the chance, for some simple color. These all have iridescent pigments which, as any artist knows, scanners just can’t capture.

Top left to bottom:
“Black and Gold Chicken Orb”
“Gold and Blue Chicken Orb”
“Homage to the Red Hen”
“Glorious Dee”
“This Is Normal.”

All are ink and watercolor.
That chicken is the dragon’s friend. Many dragons have chicken friends. Don’t you disagree with me on this I will fight you. Chickens are polite to dragons and retrain from pooping directly on them, so don’t you even worry about that.

“ Thread Star ‘  Scanned flower photograph by Bob Bauer.  This is one of my oldest scanned floral pieces, when I was just learning how and what to do.  I still love it.  Especially the threaded center. Not as high resolution as the others I have done later.  Can only be priinted as a 10x10 incher.


Credit to Ben Bocquelet, Gene Kelly, Stanley Donen, Betty Comden, Adolph Green, and especially @tardisman14 for putting these two together.

‘ Ghost Seed ‘   Hue altered scanned plant photograph by Bob Bauer.  When I put this image in photoshop, I decided to play a bit with the colors and this particular hue seemed ghostly to me and added to the image.   Part of my collection of extremely high resolution images.

‘ Callous ‘   Scanned floral photograph of Calla Lilies by Bob Bauer.  Each different flower has its own strategy for attracting pollinators.  Some very original strategies.  This is why we love flowers.
