Do you doodle while you’re on the phone? I do. Face #11 was doodled while talking with my mom today. Watercolor, ink and colored pencils. Happy Valentine’s Day!
A quick watercolor that I did today for EMG Sketch Fest, for the prompt Green Eyed Lady, prompted by Elma Bree.
What a busy week! How was your’s? I’m hoping it was wonderful and that you’re all set to have a fabulous and relaxing weekend. In between all the busy stuff that life throws at us, I did some doodles and a couple of quick little postcard size paintings. The doodles were done on two separate […]
This face only emerged after I gessoed over the one I had started which wasn’t working the way I had thought it would. I’m so glad I covered it up and let this girl come out. Lessons learned…gesso is my friend and to be flexible because every painting has a soul waiting to get out, […]
I haven’t done a drippy watercolor face in a long time, so decided to play today.
Today’s face is called “Everyone is Beautiful”. As you can see, I wrote those words in her hair. When I started to sketch her, I decided to grab my camera and photograph some of my steps. I have some friends who are beginning their face painting and sketching journey, encouraged by 29 Faces. […]
Face #2 is finished. Mixed media including water color, ink, colored pencil, graphite and acrylic. I know I shouldn’t take photos at night, but I wanted to share her with you today. The true colors are so much nicer (especially the background and the shadow under the nose) and the hair color is much richer. […]
Hello my friends. Happy February! I’m sketching and painting faces all month. What joy! I’ll be sharing all 29 of the faces a create for this year’s February 29 Faces art challenge. I love, love, love this challenge. I’m so excited to share my first face. I painted her after doing one of Life Book […]

Everywhere you look people are sharing their resolutions for 2016, or, more popular in the art community, their […]
OR.. Why I’m Behind In Life Book I’ve been playing catch up with Life Book 2015 watching some of the lessons for the first time. What I find interesting is what happens when I do the lessons, which explains why I am (or think I am) so far behind. I’ve actually watched most of the […]
Over on my FB page, I’ve been sharing some of my digital art from this past year and it seems right to share here as well. This is a digital work titled, “At One”. It is a digital mixed media piece, done in Poser 7, PSP and PS. and a closer look, at […]
I thought I’d let you know that, yes, I am still painting during all these wonderful artist interviews. I hope you are enjoying the features, I know I am. I painted this pretty girl last night. I think her hair was inspired by the howling winds outside my window. They are still howling this morning! […]
