Garden of Good and Evil...

It's been a very long day; so this will be a short post.  I needed to unwind and what better way than to hold on to that last ounce of consciousness I have to finish up a piece for the Garden of Good and Evil challenge for Macabre Monday.  I have had this awesome image from A Day for Daisies for the longest time and never found an opportunity to use it...until now.
Colored with Prismacolor markers
Lettering and Apple in branches sketched by me:)
I copied and flipped the image to create this beautiful creature. The theme made me think of Eve and the Apple.
Oh, a bit of good news...I received the honor of the Liebster Award for this blog!!!  Thank you Andrea :)
Not familiar with this award?  No prob.  Stay tuned.  Details to come.  But I am late for my date with the Sandman.
Thanks for stopping by!  Good night and sweet dreams.

Love lies bleeding...

Life has been unkind recently, so I'm kind of  in a funk.  When I saw this week's theme over at Macabre Mondays it was perfect.
So, I poured myself some Merlot and took out my ink pens and Sharpies.

Ink sketch
(Sketched my own hand for this one)
Love can be delicate and beautiful like a rose; but it can still hurt you and bleed you until you have nothing left.  It's ironic how one thing can heal, can also destroy.  Ugh, I need more wine.  Until next time.  By then I would have come out of this funk.  Thanks for stopping by.
Cheers,
Mary

UPDATE
Wow, I was selected for Gruesome Twosome for this!  What an honor!

All you need is love...

Hi everyone!
Short post for today...so much to do, so little time!  Life has been so crazy that I HAD to take an hour to just do something, anything creative.  I did a quick sketch for the Art with No Boundaries "All you need is love" challenge.
I would like you to meet Fiona.  She's a little sprite that helps infuse broken hearts with love so that they can heal.  She's contemplating which color to use next!

Pencil and ink

The Wilting Flower

It was a rough week and my art had to take a backseat.  So glad it's the weekend and I didn't miss out on this week's challenge over at Macabre Mondays.  The theme: Shot through the heart.
I decided on a fashion sketch.  Meet Sophia.  It was her big day.  Unfortunately her groom never came.  Broken hearted, her soul is doomed to wander until she can find true love again...

Will you be mine...forever?
