The art and illustrations of Bonny Wagoner
creating magic with watercolor and colored pencil



I've known my entire life I was a creative.
All of the materials I use in my work are archival quality.
By design my work is meant to last.

Works in progress:
When I finished a series of foundation graphite pencil drawings featuring Timberline Lodge (on Mt Hood in Oregon) last year my grandson asked me an innocent question, "Can I help you color those in?" His question inspired me to create a set of ink drawings for him to color. When my artist friends saw what I was doing they suggested I publish a coloring book. I have to share if I said this project was fun, it would be an understatement. By Bonny WagonerThe Newels - by Bonny WagonerThe second series of drawings are underway featuring just the newels of Timberline Lodge and will be completed by the end of summer. The book should be ready by the holidays. I was just up on the mountain finishing taking reference pictures of the last newels and I had the chance to talk to the rangers about the two that are so worn I was having a hard time figuring out what some of the animals were. Now I know. I took some more reference pictures to finish the last of the drawings. Preorders of the second book will be made available with some fun extras only available for those orders.

Weekly urban sketching outings - we meet at the Columbia Learning Center every Thursday at 10:00am and then head out in to the surrounding areas to draw/paint for a couple hours. Bring a folding chair and your supplies if you would like to join us. All skill levels are welcome.

Please visit my [blog] to see more of my sketching adventures which take me out in to gardens, greenhouses, backyards, along the river, in the forests, in the mountains, along the coast, downtown - really all over so it's more "sketching everywhere".
