Scrumptious Things Called Houses

IS IT POSSIBLE that most everyday I find myself loving my neighborhood even more? Fresh farmer's markets, tree-lined streets, the parkway, ...the sounds of trains in the distance. When the sun was still coming up and the only things out and about were singing birds, I was inspired to take a few photos of the most charming houses around my neck of the woods.

I still have a lot more sketches to do, but I couldn't resist starting to add color in already. Leave it to me to be 10 steps ahead of myself. I've got about 4 paintings waiting to be finished, but I really just wanted to start in on this project today. Guess you can never have too much stuff for a gallery night, right?

SHOW PREP - More Work In Progress

GATHERING bits and pieces (literally) from here and there to get ready for my annual gallery show in October. Here are some snippets of new, but incomplete pieces that incorporate paper, felt and paint. They're a nice break from my usual digital illustration. And besides,... what's more fun than working with mod podge and having itty-bitty pieces of paper stuck to your toes?

Next on my list – ink feather sketches. Love creating positive & negative space and texture with just the use of lines. These will be completed digitally.
