I was challenged by my friend, Willena Jeane Belden, to post a painting a day for seven days. This is digital art. I just published “The Missing Butler and Other Life Mysteries” (A Collection of Short Stories). These are illustrations from that book.
Day 6 – Auld Lang Syne – (sixth story in the book) A middle-aged woman meets her ex-lover in the local grocery store.
(Note: This is an okay drawing. Capturing melons was hard for me, considering I love melons and not beets so much and the beets came off excellent. At least I think the beets is one of my best works. One day I will try again on the melons.)
Funny true story, which I wrote into the story – I stopped by a roadside stand about 15 years ago and was looking at the cantaloups. I asked, “Are these organic?”
His response was, “No, dear, these are cantaloups.”

I like this picture! Does digital art mean you created it with a computer? So pretty!
Thank-you! Yes, it does, or on my iPad. I use a stylus in lieu of a pencil to draw. I like that it is so portable and that you can back out mistakes. I wanted to get back into painting for so long, but the thought of ruining a beautiful piece of paper intimidated me. Then my son-in-law introduced me to this method. I got the new apple pen which is so much better than the previous stylus. The only drawback to it is that you have to be on Bluetooth to draw.
Wow, technology has changed so many aspects of our lives. I had not thought much about its relationship to art, but here’s a perfect example!
