Chunky Pajama Man and Dog

Here's my newest Pajama Man. This one is on kid's finger paint paper, in pencil and watercolor pencils.

American Tree Sparrow

Okay. I had convinced myself I could not draw a bird, but I sat down with a photo of one (didn't have a live one!) and gave it a try and voila! I actually can draw a bird! On to bigger and better birds! So if you are convinced you can't draw something, don't waste time like I did...try it again!

Reclining Nude figure drawing class

pen and ink, chaulk, Photoshop.

Seated nude figure drawing class

Pen and ink on paper, 15 minute sketch.

Figure drawing sketch

Charcol 15 second sketch. Quick and fun!


When my son was small he had a yellow parakeet. He would let it climb onto his finger and then the bird would crawl up and sit quietly on his shoulder. Only decent bird I ever drew (and that was from the back!)

Exclamation Point

My Exclamation Point turned into a sort of band of flying thought balloons! Fun pencil sketch on illustration board.

Figure drawing class

Did this in figure drawing class, with conte crayon.

Pajama Man 2

Here's a quick sketch I did the other night in pen and ink. This morning I scribbled in some prismacolor. At least I'm sketching!!!!

Veterans Day in US

Thank you to all the veterans of all the wars that have helped protect the US during wartime, especially my Dad, Frank Taillon, who was shot in GuadalCanal during WW II and who received a purple heart. Don't forget to say thank you to your loved ones!

Big brother's birthday

I've been collecting stuff for making some collages for a while now, and decided to make one for my brother's birthday. Check it out. It's mounted on board, and I had my husband drill small holes to hold the owl hanger. It has little holes in the back of the owl to hold the ribbon. I had a ball doing this and now I want to make more! Enjoy. He was about 10 I guess when this photo was taken at our camp.

I was waiting (not so patiently) for some updates to load on my new computer, so I decided to do a quick sketch of my rolodex. I have fun using a large sharpie pen on kids finger painting paper because it is so slick the pen just flies over it. Try it sometime!
