Wicked witch

Well, I’ve had wicked bad luck the last few weeks so after we saw Oz the Great and Powerful this character seemed appropriate to draw. After nearly two weeks, four phone calls, three separate guys out here and a brand new router and wiring our Internet is sorta, sometimes back up to speed after the phone company tinkered with the box in our backyard while burying a new line for our neighbor. I’ll give it a few more days to get better, then it’s back to calling customer service…

I can’t paint at my drawing table since I messed up my ankle by slipping and falling in the shower, so this was just a quick doodle done lazing in the recliner with my foot up.


The Lord is my shield

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song I will praise him. Psalm 28:7


The 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge ended today, I started a day late so I’ll do one more for it tomorrow. It was lots of fun and I really enjoyed my theme of loosening up my painting style.



Shield is based on Lancelot’s in First Knight– cool movie, first one to really show the armor getting all dinged and banged up during a battle and it had Sean Connery!
