I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

Elizabeth Patterson is an L.A. based artist who has figured out the knack in recreating the fascinatingly complicated formation of raindrops on a rain-streaked windshield. What’s more unusual still is that instead of acrylic or watercolor, she uses colored pencils with a bit of solvent to create her art. She uses a composite of several of her own photographs to get a feel for her drawings. In 1984, Elizabeth was involved in a car crash which resulted in the complete loss of use of her drawing hand. For a while, she put her artistic aspirations aside and traveled to Hawaii to explore the magnificent underwater vistas. It wasn’t until around 1999 that she picked up her pencils and, to her delight, found that her artistic talent was unaffected by her injury. She continues to explore her favorite subject matter, demonstrating an admirable mastery in graphite and color pencil drawing.
