Art Available

Now Available on Devieantart link below

I've put up some art on Deviantart - Alice-E-Keyes. Some are photos of originals from my sketchbook and one is the above digital art. I'll be adding more digital art as pieces are completed. The website makes them purchasable though I have no idea of the quality of the prints as I've never purchased a piece from the website. And, I am willing to create on commission.

Metric Century, almost. 8 sentence Dieselpunk

 I only passed two people all day on the ride; I wished my borrowed bike was speedier. Though for style, the classic Italian Bianci was a head turner.

Olive shouted, “This bike is a wonder!” She pedaled faster and passed the boys.

“Look at Ernest’s contraption,” said Evelyn as they left the Old Faithful area.

Ranger Dashing had retrieved his motored bicycle and made a quick pass by the group to show off his homemade wilderness traveling motorbike.

“That is marvelous and so is Ernest.” Susan teased and pedaled past Evelyn.

“I’m not going to eat dust back here,” Olive said while passing Susan. They played a leapfrog game of being leader until the trail became too narrow

8 Sentence Sunday

I have a moment on the family vacation to add a 8 sentence Dieselpunk snippet. 

Dear Mother and Father,

The weather has been lovely. The evenings are cool and there hasn’t been a cloud threatening our daytime activities with rain. You’ld be interested to know that my daytime has been occupied with science. The College of Nikola and Ada has a Scientific Society and are studying the Old Faithful area of Yellowstone. I was asked to join and Uncle Teddy agreed, thinking studying with students would be more interesting than listening to the Yellowstone Board’s meetings.

You would be happy to know my sketching skills are of great use to the group of students I’m helping. In fact, Professor Hayden invited me to join the Naturalist Department and said my observations skills would be a great asset to the program. It is all very exciting.
