Giraffes & Waffles?

Time keeps on tickin’, tickin’, tickin’ into the future! It sure is flying by and I can’t seem to find the time to get everything done! I started a new job doing landscaping so I’ve been spending a lot of time in the sunshine! …..I wasn’t able to draw much this week but I didContinue reading “Giraffes & Waffles?”

Tanglepedia

I was able to take a trip to the art shop yesterday and picked up a little sketch book and a pen cloth to keep my zentangles supplies in.  In my newest bible, The Joy of Zentangle, there is a lot of tangles to learn. The authors of the book suggest to have a keyContinue reading “Tanglepedia”

Inktober Challenge

As some of you may know I have an obsession with instagram! I check my account daily and surf the photos on there of other artists and friends. I had noticed that many of the artists I follow were posting ink drawings with a related hashtag, Inktober. I became curious…What does Inktober mean? I found out InktoberContinue reading “Inktober Challenge”

Let’s Sea What’s New

This month has been quite an adventure! Things are changing rapidly and and new opportunities beginning! Now I know what the hummingbird moth was trying to tell me! I’ve been spinning in circles trying to get everything done. One project I will be finishing this week is a surprise! I don’t want to give awayContinue reading “Let’s Sea What’s New”

Scribbles & Scores

It’s amazing to see how a few scribbles and scratches on paper can create an image. I’ve been using a pen lately to prevent erasing. All my lines are permanent so therefore I don’t have the option of a second attempt to get a line perfect. I’ve been practicing many different pen and ink techniquesContinue reading “Scribbles & Scores”

Free Spirit WIP II

I am on to my next piece. I’m working on another dog portrait to be displayed at a local  “Dogcare”. I have four pieces already finished, this will be the fifth. I am a little behind as far as matting and framing them all. These drawings are odd sizes so I have to custom cutContinue reading “Free Spirit WIP II”

Free Spirit WIP

Spring came and then the snow followed! At least where I am! I’m scratching my head confused as to how this happened. Two days ago I was thinking about wearing shorts. Today I have two pairs of pants and three shirts on, struggling to stay warm! Baffling! Well, enough about weather. Let’s talk art! I’veContinue reading “Free Spirit WIP”

Childish Chalk Talk

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” -Pablo Picasso I came across a video of an artist, Ruth Oosterman, painting a picture using her toddler’s doodle as her layout. You can check out the video at the bottom of this post. I thought it was a reallyContinue reading “Childish Chalk Talk”

Transsssformation

Just a sketch for today’s post. Snakes and other reptiles have always fascinated me. The great anaconda is an earthly wonder! I marvel at their size. The snake in Native American teachings represents transformation. In “shedding your skin” you can tie up loose ends and create room for new beginnings. If a snake slithers acrossContinue reading “Transsssformation”

Free Spirit Flashback

I came across a bunch of old sketchbooks and school projects the other day. It’s really funny to look back and see the drawings you did as a kid and compare them through the years. I thought it would be neat to do a timeline of my work for my latest post. I wasn’t ableContinue reading “Free Spirit Flashback”
