just a little something for my grand-pop...


up in heaven:(
yesterday was the anniversary of his death...the worst day ever for me! so, i wanted to do something for him...in my own little way...and this is what i came up with. i always remember praying on my knees every night before i went to sleep (the good little catholic girl i am) in my pink room. AND...i ALWAYS had white furniture...and still do...;)
hopefully my grand-pop is looking down and can see this little illustration made JUST FOR HIM! I LOVE YOU POP-POP!!!

snow white...done the enchanted easel way;)


ok...so i go to this princess themed baby shower today and i am sitting there looking around at all the disney princesses. on bedding, on curtains, on clothing...you get the point;) anyway, i thought to myself 'why not draw the princesses in my litte style-the enchanted easel way?'
so, needless to say, i came right home and got out my sketch book and decided to go with snow white first. i mean she is the fairiest of them all;)i am so excited to paint this and looking forward to doing the rest of the princesses...hopefully time will permit that to happen! belle and mulan are my other favorites:)i will be selling prints of these by the way..

illustration friday~cocoon 4-30-10


all done!!! yay!!! i am so happy that i had the time to participate this week in illustration friday. i have been super busy with custom orders and working on some greeting card illustrations as well.
this week's theme was 'cocoon'. and this is my take on it...and fills my obsession for all things japanese;) seriously people...i need to go to japan one of these days...;)
'cocoon' is apparent in 3 ways here...1)she is 'cocooned' in her little kimono/wrap which is 2) made of silk from silk worms who spin their 'cocoon' out of silk. and 3) she is looking a bit reflective and pensive...almost 'cocooned' within herself...
LOVE this piece!!!
