Going a Courting

I'll be working on the color for this piece this week. 

It was for Illustration Friday's word of the week, "Shy"...but the interaction
didn't end up seeming to shy.

Found Object Drawing


I often see this flower in my yard and have always thought it
would be a great hat for a fairy.

So for today's sketch, I did so. And then decided I ought to paint it as well.

The Human Random Idea Generator

Me: What should I draw today?
Husband: Bunnies in hard helmets driving a digger.
Me: Seriously?
Husband: Yeah...digging up carrots.

Contemplating Fireflies

Two bunnies contemplate the night sky full of stars and fireflies.

Originally I was going to make this a daytime scene without the bunnies, but after seeing the bunnies in my backyard I decided to incorporate them. I also wanted to play some with a night sky and just let the watercolors pool rather then smoothing the color out like I usually do.

Forest Fairy

I actually drew the original sketch back in 2006, but finally decided to do something more with it now. I am not sure about the barn owl may or may not stay in the final.

There are Monsters under the Bed!

I started this, stopped it, started it again and then stopped. Then I needed the paper that was under this one, so I took it off the board. I may or may not put it under the brush again, but I thought it was about time she get some air.

Mother's Day Card

I decided I needed to draw up some more cards, thus these two were born. If they print out like I envision, they will be up on my etsy shop soon.

It seems I have just been in a pink mood lately!

Bright Designs

These watercolors will eventually be cast into a bezel with resin for necklaces. I went through a paisley stage in grade school and decided to bring them back to go with the bright colors I was in the mood to paint with.

Studio Photos

I had an friend visit about a month ago. She took some rather stellar shots of my studio and art supplies. I offered to tidy up a bit, but with the wisdom of an art teacher she said, it's more interesting this way.

Valentines Day-the day after

Something I look forward to every year is a Valentine's Day exchange.

This year I decided to do a Calendar. Most likely I am going to reformat it for 2013 and sell it on my etsy store.
