New Drawing: Work-In-Progress

Yesterday I posted one of my more “philosophical” posts. Then I changed my mind a few hours later and took it offline. The truth is, my ideas about my life and where it’s headed are changing that quickly. The truth is that, if you’ve read some of my older posts, there is probably a lotContinue reading “New Drawing: Work-In-Progress”

The Blue Guy Returns: Sneak Preview

In April and May 2020, I created a series of daily “Happy Drawings.” The you-know-what current situation had just started a couple months before and I had decided to try Facebook again. These drawings were among the first things I posted there upon my return. My intention was to hopefully add a little happiness toContinue reading “The Blue Guy Returns: Sneak Preview”

ADK Love

Clearly, I’ve got ADK (the Adirondacks) on the brain, so I thought I’d share a little snippet from a new drawing – created for use as a repeating fabric design. I call these houses “ADK Little Houses” and in this case also, “Floating Houses.” Inspired by the little roadside cabins for let to travelers seenContinue reading “ADK Love”

The Stunning Beauty of Imperfection

I’ve been wanting to be more spontaneous in my drawing-to-digital art conversion since the beginning, and, as of yesterday, I think I may have gotten a lot closer. I decided to experiment with adding color to one of my recent drawings. After some initial clean up, first using techniques explained by Art Rocket, and thenContinue reading “The Stunning Beauty of Imperfection”

I’m on a Journey – One I Can Take from the Comfort of My Couch

This idea was initially sparked by a podcast from Jennifer Bailey, about the importance of setting up a daily “alignment (good mood) practice,” which I’ve been doing in a very unstructured way for a while now. Then the other day, I came upon a Gabby BernsteinContinue reading “I’m on a Journey – One I Can Take from the Comfort of My Couch”

Kaleidoscope Design Challenge

For this week’s Spoonflower design challenge, I chose to create watercolor symmetrical “kaleidoscopes” and frame them in an ogee layout. White space between each motif/ogee line was used to give the design an open, uncrowded feel; to give them room to breathe, if you will. Very pleased with the results! Here’s my process, more orContinue reading “Kaleidoscope Design Challenge”

Things I’m still not good at (Dot #17)

I’ve been in need of a break, so I tried for an easy dot yesterday. I had done a bunch of dot drawing prior to finalizing and uploading the first one, and I used one of those drawings yesterday instead of creating a new one. Below is the before and after. I must admit, I’mContinue reading “Things I’m still not good at (Dot #17)”
