I recently finished this very special custom work. Did you know that some people believe that a red cardinal is a representation of a loved one who has passed? When you see one it means that the loved one is visiting you and they usually show up when you most need them, to let you know that they will always be with you.

Here is the full video of me playing around with my Sketch & Wash pencil, watercolor brush and waterproof ink pen. I’m working on some new characters and trying to figure out how I want to portray these pesky sea gulls.
This is a sketch that I created with some of my new sketchbox materials and loosely inspired by the work of Gustav Klimt. The doe is actually cut from a piece of paper that my 4 year old painted. Shhhh, don’t tell her. I really want to make more collage pieces like this. It SOLD and is framed and ready for a new home!
Wishing you a very happy holiday season filled with peace, love and joy!
I created this illustration just in time for Day 5 of #illo_advent. If you are not familiar with the illustration initiative, it was created by Penny Neville Lee and you can find more information through her twitter feed. https://twitter.com/PennyNevilleLee What a great idea!
