Sunday Postcard Art

This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art theme:  Double Take  - 2 little girls with 2 little dolls!


Illustration Friday: Swarm

I haven't done one of these for a while, so I thought I would take advantage of a quiet snow day to put together something with a warm breeze of spring...

so this is what I did for Illustration Friday this week, a SWARM of butterflies!

Sunday Postcard Art

My artful long weekend has turned into a bit of a self-pity weekend, as I have spent most of it in the fetal position with a nasty cold/flu bug.  I did manage to do one challenge though (involving a nap before, and a nap after) for Sunday Postcard Art.  Below is my entry for the theme: Faces

media: watercolor pencils and micron liner with on bristol

Art Journal Love Challenge

Here is my entry for the Art Journal Love challenge.  I used the famous phrase from my favourite band, The Beatles. I used   watercolors, markers, and india ink, and mostly ....love, love, LOVE!
