Wow---unbelievable paintings, Carol. And to think that they are done with crayon makes them even more amazing.

Thanks for sharing. I especially love the faces of the American Indians.

Hugs,
Betsy

I will never look at a box of crayons the same way again.

I loved the American Indians too!

Those are fasinating! I've used crayons before in doing pointalism pictures, or simple illustrations but never thought them as a tool that could help produce such wonderful images as these. I guess the talent of an artist comes out no matter what medium or tool they choose to use.

Thanks for sharing them.

Amazing artistry. I used to work in pastels, which were somewhat similar to crayons. That was when I perceived I had artistic talent.

I remember Mother designed some quilt pieces with crayon drawings which she ironed with wax paper over the design. It seemed to melt the crayon into the fabric. Some of my family still have that quilt which was youth bed size.

Looks just like Kate's crayon drawings, ha ha! Amazing, really, isn't it? And so versatile! Wonder why he chose crayons as his medium?

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Amazing work, and to think all done with crayons.....
I love the American Indian drawings, it feels as if you can touch their faces, and they will come alive.
What an artist !

and to think most people think of crayons as kids toys

Linda Pendleton said...

Very good! Thanks for sharing.

You have got to be kidding...ALL crayons? I feel like getting my box out! (I love crayons...I haven't used them in ages but it's nice to know that they are there!)
Thank you for sharing this!

Crayon? Really? Unbelievable!

Vicki Lane said...

Amazing work! Who'd have thought plain ol' color crayons could do that!

(We had stuffed tomatoes last night -- I kept back a few till they reddened up!)

Thistle Cove Farm said...

GASP! These are fabulous, so difficult to believe they are crayon!!! I sure didn't get that when I used to sit down with a box of Crayola's -LOL-

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Wow. this gives "colouring" a whole new meaning.

Trixie said...

Well! Aren't those paintings something! My eyes lingered on Miss Kitty, that old tramp! And Chester. I believe I went with him for a short while. When his fingers started groping at the strings of my chastity belt I let out a holler that could be heard for miles and said, "Get thee behind me, Satan."

Choose Virtue, young girls. Choose Virtue.

Glad I'm done with the men.

Thank you for loving Trixie Goforth, honey. She loves you too.
