What makes you dream?

This is my niece Brittany when she was about 17 years old.
I recently took my first art class. The instructor is someone whose work I admire; Lee Hammond. She taught me patience and how to use tools that I had but didn't know how to use.

Thou that goes by the name of Anonymous,
Sharing a body of work that is synonymous,
With the limitless possiblities,
Of any one persons abilities.
What a prolific artistic soul is the creator by the name of Anonymous.

This was done in colored pencil and is in response to an art challenge from The Artist Challenge, for Anonymous. This was not my first thought but my second and is in regards to all the "Anonymous" artists and authors.

This is a copy of a masters work. Picasso did this self portrait when he was 18. I love this piece. For me this is the piece that show his mastery! Mine isn't perfect so back to the drawing board. It's all good because it's fun to work on a piece you love and this was my first time using charcoal, I liked it. Want to do more.

I drew the character and then cut her out....after scanning I opened her up in the paint program and gave her a background...I'm not done with her yet...I think I'm going to have fun with this one :0)

I was doodling at work today...(hey my job is about multi-tasking). Started with a funny little curve that became lips. They looked sensual so I wanted to add flowing hair. Then I started thinking about Bernini's sculpture of Pluto and Proserpina...So that is what I ended up with, my interpretation, or at least a snippet of it.
