Finished drawing

Here is the finished drawing, titled "Jesus' Toenail", done in chalk pastels today. For the story behind this drawing, please see my last post. I added shading and markings on my arm, the watch face, the tree trunk, branches and leaves, and made that huge thumb a more appropriate size! That is one beauty of chalk pastels, you can go right over the top and cover anything that needs it! Voila! Oh, and P.S....pay no attention to the line of white dots up the side...those were some hole punched areas on a peice of construction paper I picked up...I was planning to draw a watch and cut the dots off...but the whole thing got out of hand...and now we are stuck with holes! Just my luck! Hehehe.

Very good drawing Julie. The shading is great. The holes make it seem even more real.

It's a hopeful piece, Julie, with the "zunehmen" crescent of a moon. Good work!

Like your hand. Regarding pinching cuttings, it is the only way they grow! My mother always when she was walking around the neighbourhood would come home with a piece of something and they always grew, a very well known gardening guy from the UK (now dead) whose lecture I went to admitted to always carrying in his pocket a small pair of heavy duty scissors so he could take cuttings, so we all do it!

Nice job on the picture. Cute toenail story.

I thought about you when I looked at Lyric's blog today. You should look at this post just to see her cactus garden photos:
