Sari 2

Sari 2

So, I have this wonderful friend who insists that I need to take a few of my journal entries and put them to canvas. She really loved the Sari piece and wanted me to do something similar but with a darker skin tone for her apartment. I was flattered but warned her that truly I am no artist and that might prove to be a challenge.

Last night I tried my hand at a dark skin tone and behold... I failed, miserably. If anyone wants to give me some pointers, go at it.

Vlog, WHAT?

Movie maker magic. I can already hear my husband's hand slapping against his brow.

Professional Doodler

Some people say, "Wow that's really good!" and I say "Naw, it's just doodling." A professional doodler is less intimidating than saying artist. Artist gives the impression I think I have talent.

ATC - Childhood Companions Series

I've begun creating Artist Trading Cards (or ATC) on a whim after reading up about them on the net. What I love about them is that I can enjoy doing them with my daughter (Nana). They are small enough that you can complete one in a reasonable amount of time and they work well with the attention span of a 6 year old.

Here is a series I did, completely inspired by Nana who told me I should do drawings of her stuffed animals. Watercolor, pencil, marker on 80 lb card stock.
