I cannot explain how good it feels to be back doing Illustration Friday! It has been a long time! This, I originally sketched for IF's wordjungle, but didn't have time to paint it. SO, when I saw this week's word, lush, I made sure I had time to paint it and get it on my blog!
As for me, I am back teaching kindergarten part-time, still working on my book...interest in my the dummy...so keep your fingers crossed for me! Hopefully I will get back to painting regularly now that summer is over and the kids are back at school! Thanks for stopping by!
Here's a sketch for the topic jungle over at IF this week. I had every intention of finishing this and painting it before now...but the summer sun this week was quite a distraction! Oh well...I'll post it when it is complete!! Thanks for visiting!
Miriam just loved Saturdays. She'd get up just as the sun was rising and head out to the country straight to the farmer's market.
Hi there! I loved Illustration Friday's theme, robot, this week...can you tell? I tried to be a little different this week, as I usually like to use some white space in my background... So, using color to fill the page was a bit tricky in spots! I hope you like it, too!
Here's my submission for IF's word of the week, travel. In my opinion this must be one of the coolest ways to get around...if only I could! I did this recently for a friend whose daughter loves Mary Poppins! I am working on another submission for IF, but this just fit so well...stay tuned!
Here's my submission for IF's word of the week, protest! This little pup certainly does not want his bath! I had fun with this one, although I m disppointed in the scan...the greens in my original are mush greener...oh well! Thanks for stopping by!
Well, it is finally summer! I am home with the kids which means pool, beach, relaxation and hopefully more time to write and paint! I'd like to introduce to you our adorable dog Sprinkles! She is such a curious dog...especially when it comes to bees! Here she is keeping a very close watch on this one!
Here's my submission for this week's Illustration Friday prompt, wild! It's one of those sketches that have been sitting in my sketchbook for a while just waiting to be painted! Finally I had a prompt that fit it...yay!
Here's my entry for Illustration Friday's word prompt wool. I have been back to using cold press watercolor paper and am really enjoying it! I was really happy with how it turned out! Happy Monday everyone!
Hi! It seems as if another month whizzed by and I didn't get a chance to participate in IF! BUT...now I can! I was determined to get this done...a painting for my little nephew's birthday! It just so happens that it fits (sort of) the theme edge! Don't fall in dragon! I am sorry the scan is so grainy..I am not really sure why! I also had to saturate a bit because the scan came out so bad! Oh well...maybe it's time for a new scanner?
Well...I hope you enjoy this one and hopefully it will not be another month before I do another post!! Happy New Year to you!
