Every little ridge is beautiful. Kate, it doesn't matter what you decide to do in live, you are a very talented woman with gifts to give...

glad you got your mojo back.

I'm so glad you found that joy! You do such perfect and beautiful work! It's a joy for us to look at! You are an inspiration to those of us just starting out in the art public.

Damn, girl, these pencil pieces are wonderful. I love the smooth lines, the precision. Ah. did they take long to do?

Kate said...

Thanks ladies!
Ronni - I usually only have time for a quick drawing in my Moleskine because I rarely have time to draw unless it is for work, so I try to do studies that only take 2 or 3 hours.

Hi Kate!
It's so good you could retake drawing... I love your seashells drawings, I've been strugling with these creatures lately (trying to paint a few), and I have to say it's not easy at all, and you have put almost every single detail on them, and their glow... I really love your work...
Best regards,
Carolina

Its a good feeling when you look at, and draw something that well. To put things in black and white and all the shades in-between with a few pencils is a good way to clear your mind of anything that is bothering you.

Hello kate! Still terrific and fantastic as always. It's a joy to see you over at my blog. I have been trying to catch up with all your blogs. I see you have a new one or maybe I have not seen that before. I hope all is well with you Kate.

Kate!

It's been too long!

I was wondering what was happening with this blog. Glad to see it is still alive and kicking.

Fantastic job on the seashells. What a smooth looking texture you achieved!

Just great!
