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!
I thought I would share a little bit about my process today. When painting forest scenes, branches, pine needles etc., I like to use a #1 round brush and a liner brush. The round brush is great for creating varying sizes in the branches and I really like to use the liner brush for the spindly pine needles. They also work great when painting fur or whiskers.

This is the last custom work that I created in 2017 for my best client and friend! 😉 Framed and ready for pickup!
This was such a great year for me, creatively. I illustrated my first children’s book, attended my first SCBWI conference, learned about instagram and twitter, had my first solo show in years, gained gallery representation and grew tremendously as an artist. Thank you for all who have supported me and continue to follow my journey! Here’s to an even better 2018.
We actually had a good amount of snow in Alabama last weekend. I’ve never seen a snowy forest but I would like to imagine that it looks something like this. Here is another post for #illo_advent. Peace, love and joy everyone.
Look at this little cutie. I really LOVE this wooden frame with the hints of turquoise in the bead work. Inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks friends!
These turtles were named for their large head size, used to crush shell-fish such as conchs. The most common sea turtle in the US was at one time a threatened species. Today they are protected by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
