First Sketches in Ammon's Book

I have Ammon's Mole out of order because some people had several Moles and I had none.

Collaboration with Mike
This is my collaboration with Mike.  I used a Sakura graphic pen and a Sakura micron pen, neither of which matched his pen.  I wasn't sure what he used (should have asked, I guess.)

Nightmare #120211-b
Sakura Micron pens, colored pencil, gouache
This was originally an attempt at an abstract.  I love Andrea's abstracts, but I don't seem to be able to do abstracts often (only occasionally).  I was unhappy with the abstract by itself and added nonabstract details.

By the way, the corner is cut of out of this page (by someone OTHER than me).  But that space on the next page is somewhat damaged.  Perhaps someone can make something on the next page that will show through and be a collaboration--or maybe I will at some later point, for the next person to finish.

I love your abstract Mary! I like that you have added realistic details in there, I don't seem to be able to do that very often.

Thanks, Andrea--I feel a little better, I was sort of disappointed in it!!!

You shouldn't be - AT ALL!

Are you kidding me, Mary?! That green patchwork-y page is awesome! I love the fact that your additions don't match his perfectly - that's what adds richness to it. WELL DONE!

Thank you so much, both of you. I was feeling a little low about my art. THANKS!!!!! :-D
