Gardens Influence on My Art and More of the Usual

I've become enamored with Gelli Roll gel pens and my garden! Here are some examples of combining the two! I've gotten such positive feedback that I'm looking into creating an account on Society6 so I can offer prints for sale. Stay tuned.

And my love of gel pens and Creative lettering continues as well! 

This was date night in Roseville, Ca
The night of the day my husband sang at Open Mike .... I was so proud! 

The Old West Trio

Of course I also continue to draw in coffee cafes

And I continue to discover new art supplies! 

One can just never have too many pens! 

I also had a surprise visit from our eldest grandson! It was a joy to show him our new garden and talk about the meaning of life! 

Loving becoming more and more self sustaining! 

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your visits and comments as they keep me inspired to draw more! 

I wish you a Creative Week ahead!

  8. Great post, Lynn. The gelli roll pen work is awesome and makes me want to run out and buy some black paper. I think I still have the pens. As always I enjoyed seeing the sketches of the people you draw and the beautiful fancy lettering. Your dh looks just like you draw him so I would have know who was up there singing without an introduction!

  9. Lynn, I love your illustrations of date night and everyday life! Your hand lettering really spices them up and helps to tell a story. Your grandson looks sweet. He is about the age of my son and his smile makes me smile. -Terri
