Phew...almost missed the midnight cutoff to IF's promo, blue. Haven't gotten the chance to contribute to Illustration Friday in quite a while so I couldn't pass this up...especially with the title being "My Blue Heaven".

Prints here and pendant necklace here. I love blue poppies. And am so looking forward to seeing them again this March on display at Longwood Gardens. They are breathtaking.

2018's first painting!!

Serenity Amid the Solstice

And I love her! So much!

Inspired by my love of winter (yes, I LOVE WINTER-someone has to), snowdrops and green eyes, I present to you the beautiful, Lumi. Meaning "snow" in Finnish, Lumi just seemed like a good name....I mean she kinda has a Scandanavian like vibe to her (well, to me anyway). Painted in a palette of soft sages and gorgeous grays, I wanted to give a wintry like feel to her without using baby blues and icy pastels. I must say, I throughly enjoyed this color palette I chose. 

Those big green eyes (I LOVE GREEN EYES-i digress), conveying a feeling of serenity surrounded by the delicate beauty of the snowdrop flower and kissed by butterflies wings. Lumi is indeed, "Serenity Amid the Solstice".

PRINTS AVAILABLE HERE and I'll be turning her into a pendant necklace in the next few weeks. Pendant necklaces available here.

I really hope you love her as much as I do. She sure does own a piece of my winter loving heart.

A new snowdrops painting....

is in the works for 2018!! 

I LOVE WINTER...AND SNOWDROPS! Basically, anything including the word "snow" is usually is enough to make me happy. :)

Been working on a new snowdrops themed painting these last few weeks with a serene color scheme of soft sage green and a bevy of gorgeous grays. Different than my usual bright and colorful color palette, yet I must say I'm thoroughly enjoying it. 

Progress pics below as well as January 2016's "Silence of the Snowdrops" painting (still my favorite painting to date) with links to PRINTS and a sweet pendant necklace featuring that painting.

Wishing everyone a blessed and happy New Year!!

8x10, graphite and colored pencil on 80b cold press cream drawing paper

With this being the last day of November (YAY DECEMBER!!), I thought it was a good time to post this drawing of a little autumn themed girl I named Hazel (because I need to name EVERYTHING). She is done in graphite and colored pencil made by my FAVORITE pencil maker, the fabulous Derwent Company. Seriously, these people make the best pencils ever-no matter what type you're looking for. I own them all. Really. Obsessed with Derwent. Those Brits make some really handsome looking pencils. I digress...this drawing was done with the Coloursoft line of colored pencils and their graphite pencils as well. Love me some Derwent.

Hazel has a summer sister by the name of Mirasol found here. Both are available FOR SALE as original drawings. NO prints will be offered.
