Choose a Creature Day

These are all a lot older pieces of work I don't usually have displayed because the art is so outdated (done when I was still amateur.)

For our Fantastic Fridays Group I'm pulling a few old ones off the shelf.


African Pegasus.


I was sitting in church one day and started day dreaming.

This is what hearing the gospel inspired. LOL.





One of these days I'm going to have a pet cheetah.
(faux fur, by the way, no one needs to call PETA)




"Dragon Fly"
This was another church inspired piece.




A basilisk from an old children's book I started writing in high school.






Water Lily Mermaid.




I saw this guy in a dream. Does that mean he's my dream man?

  5. Hi Deirdra, thanks for commenting on my blog. I haven't posted anything for quite a while tho. I've been so busy with work and family things, plus I have a ton of books I've been trying to finish. I would really like to start blogging again tho. Thanks for your encouragement. It really means a lot. :) P.S. I enjoyed looking at your drawings.

  7. You are so very talented. I can't decide at all which is my favorite of the group. Some of my best creative idea come when I am sitting in church as well. The mind is enlarged and inspiration strikes.
