Illustration Friday--- "Gravity"

Pastel on black Canson paper. Painted on site---with no photo reference! (yep, forgot the camera that day...sure makes one work a lot quicker than usual!)

Is Spring in the air?

I found spring in between showers today, tucked into the front corner of our yard---first daffodils I've seen this year! Amazed they were in my own yard---I usually notice them around the corner first...

These next photos are of the lovely Valentine bouquet I received---again caught in the bit of sun that peeked thru the down pour today. Have been learning all about photography, RAW and other fun things these past few days as I become familiar with my new toy! The joys of digital photography...who knew it could be such fun?! Off to learn more.....

Happy Valentine's Day!

A day of LOVE! What could be better? Wishing everyone love---with a partner, family, friends---it's out there, just waiting for you to find and share!

The hearts you see were painted several years ago with acrylics. Lots of fun to make, give away, sell... still have a couple left at the gallery downtown.

Have a great Valentine's Day! Am going to try and see if I can convince my sweetie to take Latin dance lessons starting tonight with some other friends---wouldn't that be romantic?!

Illustration Friday--- "Crash"

As I was setting up this still-life, one of the eggs rolled off the edge of the railing & landed on the front porch. As I prepared to spatula up the mess, I realized I had a better composition than before & decided to use the broken egg before chucking it, resulting in "Egg Plant"...

This is watercolor on clayboard, sprayed with an acrylic uv varnish finish. (available for sale!)
