Hi Everyone! Here is my first pet portrait. He is of course my own pup--Admiral Adama. Extra points to though who know where he gets his name. Check out the full painting HERE!
I hope to take on a few portrait requests in the next few months. Please contact me if you are interested via the contact page.
Have a great day!
We stopped by to see the new Peace River Botanical Garden and Sculpture Garden in Punta Gorda, Florida. 1st stage is open now with 11 acres of gardens, sculptures, boardwalks, gazebos, and snack bar. Future stages will open more acreage (26 or so), an art gallery and lots more plant life and artwork to look at! Can't wait!
Go support art and nature at your nearest Gardens or Park! Where do you like to go to see nature and art combine?
Just a quick painting of my favorite colors. Hope you have a sun-shiny day!
Here is a quick little snippet of a dog portrait I'm working on. He's my pup Admiral Adama. I'll post again in the week to show the finished product. STAY TUNED!
I like celebrating Valentine's day with any type of love - romantic, friendship, family, or even the love we should have for strangers, our fellow human. Whether you celebrate with a friend, spouse, or a sibling today is about feeling the love! Maybe buy a stranger behind you a coffee at the drive thru. Or give a coworker a extra nice hello. Just try spreading the love. Hope you have a great day!
Check out the new time-lapse of a quick drawing. Just trying to get back in the swing of drawing from real life whether it's photos or sitting there in the field. (Literally, because it's a cow... in a field... teehee, oh just keep scrolling) What critter would you want to see next? Requests are always appreciated!
Enjoy the video and enjoy your week!
Here is another time lapse of a watercolor painting. I used watercolor paint, pen, and pencil. Please enjoy and have a wonderful holiday!
Another video, yay!! Can't be grumpy hanging out with these 12 little critters! Created with watercolor and pens. Have a happy day! These Christmas critters will be available for cards in the shop!
Hope you enjoy this little video. I'd like to create more of these so ya'll can keep up with what I'm working on. Let's try shall we.
Have a great day!
Ok, day four of the attempted "drawing a day." I have had a few beautiful Copic markers for years and not been practicing. So the coloring has much to be desired, please be kind. ;D
Hey look at that, 2 posts in a week. Crazy. Here is day 3 of INKTOBER. Brain is running on fumes so quite a literal translation of the word - poison. Hope you like.
So this is the first year I really wanted to try to do the INKTOBER challenge. Basically it was started by an artist who knew he should be drawing everyday, to practice. Then it blew up from there. He put out a list of ideas to help artists get ideas of what to draw and the rest is up to you. So naturally I'm a day late but I'm really motivated this year to participate. So here are my first and second day drawings. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to send encouraging comments. I need all the motivation I can get.
We survived the hurricane here in SWFL. Still cleaning up and repairing damage all around the state. Here is a little piece of the beautiful swampland we live near. Such an amazing place of life. LINK to the full image.
It has been too long since my last post. Summers will do that to you. Here is a small sketch of some hand-lettering. Had a lot of fun but need to practice more.
Hope everyone got to see a glimpse of the eclipse. The clouds were perfect cover to get a photo without destroying my phone! Woot! An amazing, rare site.
