Colored pencil commission and a little 80s nostalgia

posted in: Creativity | 2

I was commissioned to do this colored pencil drawing of my friend Debbie’s late husband Scott. Scott was an amazing man. Only days before his death he helped to rescue a family from a burning car. He was truly a hero and I was very honored that Debbie would feel I was worthy of making this piece to commemorate her beloved husband. I don’t draw men often enough, but I think I did a pretty good job here. Figuring out … Read More

Isn’t he a cute little gnome? I wanted to share with you the finished portrait I did for Selene of her little grandson as a gnome.. ^_^  It took me about 17 hours over 10 days to finish.

I’m back! =) And arting again! Yay! I have had a tough time allowing myself to create. I was letting pressure to perform suffocate my muse and deter me from experimenting and making mistakes, which is how we learn anything. I decided to devote my creative time to my art journal for a while. In my art journal, what I make is purely my desire with no worry about who will like it, who won’t like it etc… I can … Read More

But I wanted to share with you guys how beautiful “near-Spring” is here in the South Carolina upstate with photos from my visit to Hatcher Gardens today. Today was pretty much a perfect day weather wise. It was just cool enough to maybe need a light jacket, there was a very slight breeze and the sun was shining so beautifully. I had a few errands to run and decided I would stop at the Gardens after I was finished with … Read More

Nothing new really

I’ve been doing a lot of spring cleaning lately and been busy with the not-so-fun kind of life stuff. But I thought I would post some older stuff I never got around to sharing. I made this when I first learned how to use the water-soluble wax pastels. There was no planning or anything involved, just doodling really. A little dragonfly fairy. Face #14 And then this is from one of the Life Book 2013 lessons. It was teaching gradation. … Read More

Snow in South Carolina

Today I woke up to snow falling outside my bedroom window. It was soft and fluffy and not totally unwelcome. We don’t get a lot of snow here which means that when it does snow, it’s a truly special thing. My beautiful daughter Arielle and my grandson Aiden in his first snow ^_^ Arielle’s beautiful little family.   Aiden, washed out by the snow ^_~   I think we don’t have enough left in this world that is allowed to … Read More
