Cocoa Beach

My husband and I just returned to Massachusetts after visiting my in-laws in Cocoa Beach, Fl for five days. I brought along my sketchbook and some art supplies. I managed to create ten new little studies. I was so inspired by the plant life and pallette I found there. The sun-soaked beach they live on was especially inspiring!

Summer Studio

I have moved into a studio space for the summer to explore painting abstracts in a focused and larger format. It’s a dream come true! Surrounded by wooded pathways that lead to beaver ponds and rushing brooks. Inspiration waits for me every day!

Folio Focus

I joined Rise, Design and Shine’s Folio Focus group recently. I wasn’t sure if or how it would dove-tail with the Fifty Figures project I’ve been chipping away on. I have been using it to push some ideas around with the intention of finding my digital voice. So, the results have been mixed and sometimes rushed. I have turned a corner with Illustrator and it’s all I want to do at the moment.

Fifty Figures Goal

The 100 Days Project, when I did 100 Botanicals and Bugs, changed the way I drew. I loosened up and found my voice in interpreting vintage botanical illustration and most important, I had fun. TO that end, I have set a goal of creating fifty figure/character illustrations. I will not be doing this in fifty days as is sometimes the rule for these types of endeavors. I hope to gain a richer vocabulary in creating the human form. Here are my first three pieces.
