My car keys

A quick sketch I did of my car keys while sitting in the drivers seat waiting for my granddaughter to get done with track practice. Done in copic markers and micron pen. No wonder they
feel so heavy in my purse!!

Colored Pencil Class

Had a great time explaining the basics of colored pencil to my new students. They were all great and very attentive. I only forgot to pack one thing when I was getting ready to leave the house...my pencil sharpener! Oh boy! At least everyone else had theirs. I also got a couple more calls for the Learn to Draw class so I'll have 2 more students there next Tuesday. I'm wondering why I didn't try this earlier? I love to watch people learn to draw! I'm even considering teaching a short Photoshop class teaching artist the basics after they do the scan, what now? I imagine lots of them would like to learn that.

Learn to draw

Well I started my "Learn to Draw" class for adults yesterday and it went great. The students were concentrating on what I was teaching them and the exercises and sketches they did were really well done. They even asked if there was homework! So I sent them home with something to do and told them they should definitely consider have a sketchbook and drawing in it every day. Hope they take me up on that suggestion! Colored Pencil class starts tomorrow! Yipee!

Another botanical illustrator

Lisa Tommasi's images are a delight with tiny butterflies and insects on each page fluttering between her plants and veggies. Check them out. Really delicate and beautiful.

New Birthday card


I love to find old antique photos and play with them in Photoshop until I come up with a great new look, then offer them for sale in my Etsy Shop as birthday cards. This one will be a bit hit with any dog lover!

Pen and Ink and Dr. Martin's ink, Sheep


Here's a fun sheep I created with pen and ink, Dr. Martin's inks and acrylics. I added the jewelry for fun. After all, it's a girl sheep!
