Hot Air Balloon

Another warm-up painting.

Gold gel pen, whoohoo!

Next warm-up piece may have multi-media. I'm trying to expand my horizons right now. I'm messing around with patterns and adding some new elements like 3D pieces to things now.

Meanwhile, I have 6-9 unfinished paintings on a larger scale for various people/projects I'm doddering through (most have just had their colors worked out). I'm taking a page out of a friend's book (quite literally) and building a "process book" which is a sketchbook with mutlimedia paper where I plot out each project from start to finish and have it all in one place instead of having a few things here, a color study there, some swatches pasted to the wall...

It's a novel idea to me but appeals to my need for simplicity.

School has begun which means more posts for you! I'm pretty stoked.

Fox Again

Messing around with the colors for the fox painting. This is closer to what I wanted. I'll have to repaint it.

A Post With Birds

So here is the painting I did for my boyfriend's parents (Angry Birds fans) for Christmas:

And here is a bird I painted for fun and also trying to come up with ideas for thank-you cards.

Productivity has slowed to a crawl with job-work being extra demanding and holidays and everything. Still working but I have about 6 unfinished pieces I'm in the middle of.
