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!
I’m working hard this holiday season to fulfill several commission requests and thinking about how thankful I am for all of your support. This has been such an exciting year. Thank you for following my artistic journey and/or for your patronage!
I hope that you have a holiday season filled with peace, love and joy. However, if you do get overwhelmed with the hustle and bustle of the season, be sure to do as Sheldon Cooper would and pour yourself a warm beverage. I like a cup of coffee 😉
I picked up an IPAD Pro for my birthday and downloaded Procreate. Since then, I have been trying to figure out exactly how I want to use the app and when. Over the past two weeks I have been tinkering with the idea of a “logo” design to include on the back of prints and cards, and possibly t-shirts in the future. What do you think?
This is an illustration that I created for Colour Collective. If you are not familiar with them, they are a page on twitter that posts one color for the week. Artists can then take that color and incorporate it into a work of art using any media. You are then asked to post the work by Friday with the hashtag #colour collective This color was “timber wolf” gray. Its a great way to get the creative juices flowing.

The semester ended on a good note with successful final projects from all of my students, painting and photography. I thought that I would share some finished work from my Watercolor 1 course. The final project was to create a portrait/bust of someone expressing a mood through expression, color contrast, lighting and brush work. The night of the final critique, I forgot my camera (of course). A student was nice enough to let me borrow her camera. Some of the details are not as clear as I hoped but you can still see the work and mood intended.
