Old Blue

This car has a history, a short one.  When my husband was in the military, he found this car in some Northwestern state and bought it.  He drove it all the way across country to his mom as a gift.  This was at least two decades ago, and sadly, his mom never drove it or used it, and so it sits.  We’ve had people offer to take it off of her hands, but she refuses.  Odd, right?  It’s a robin’s egg blue color and is starting to rust pretty good.  It would probably be an easy fix up for someone who has the love for it.  Sad.  I’ve photographed it many times, and drawn it a couple as well.  Here it is in my moleskin sketchbook, first done in pencil, then in Micron black pen.  Enjoy.

Blue Hue Zentangle

This is an artwork created for I am the Diva’s challenge # 152 (to use the tangle Aquafleur). I added a watercolor wash on Bristol board and used Micron pens with Sharpie fine tip non bleed pens. You can view the Diva’s blog here http://www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com/. It’s a fantastic blog!
