In Which I Wish I Was A Better Artist

 Sacrament Meeting Art #36:  July 27, 2014.
Today we have a guest post from Zachary.  He drew a beautiful picture of a bald eagle flying and a fox chasing a squirrel. It's awesome.

Sacrament Meeting Art #37:  July 27, 2014.
Today's picture is my version of this gorgeous photograph my husband has for his laptop wallpaper.  I took a picture of it with my phone so I would have it to look at during Sacrament Meeting, but it's not that great.  It's darker than the actual picture, but it's all I had to go off of.  Here it is:

See.  It's gorgeous, and I really didn't do it justice.
Have a great Sunday!

I Which The Sun Says Goodnight

Sacrament Meeting Art #35:  July 13, 2014.
I love the night sky.  I love looking at the stars and I love watching the sun set and turn all sorts of beautiful colors.  I probably say that too much.  Sorry--not sorry.  I also love when the sun is barely just not quite set yet, and there's still a little bit of orange in the sky, but the stars are starting to peak out.  It's gorgeous.  So I decided I would try to recreate it with my crayons today.  I think it mostly worked.  I wanted to put some stars in there, but alas.  It's alright though.  I'm still pleased with the results.  I hope you enjoy it, too.

In Which Mountain Majesties (Except They're Not Purple)

Sacrament Meeting Art #34: July 6, 2014.
I've been driving south a lot these last few days and as I return home, I've been admiring the mountains here.
I really like the yellow fields of grass littered with trees of dark green.  Maybe it's just my yellow tinted sunglasses, but everything looks greener and more beautiful through them.
Also, the thing about crayons is you can't color the sky blue and then add white clouds.  You have to add the blue and imagine what the clouds look as you go along.  This makes it difficult for me to shape them and fluff them out and shade them.  For the most part, these clouds please me.  I think they turned out alright.
I like to look at the trees on the mountains and try to find pictures in them.  You know.  Like we do when we watch the clouds float by.  In the last grouping on the right, I see a weird vulture-like bird with a hat on its head.  What do you see?  Feel free to let me know in the comments.  It'll be fun.
