Hello November

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and somehow I have not managed to update my blog yet this month. I am sorry. Here is a page from my sketchbook to break my artistic silence.

Featured above is my purse, a stapler, and a calculator depicted in pen, marker, and colored pencil. Sketchbook Saturday lives!

Also, I’ve recently revamped my Etsy shop for the upcoming holiday season. For the first time I am selling prints of my plein air paintings. Take a look.

This is my very first ACEO. The only requirement for this type of collectable art is it be the size of a playing card.

I’m doing a series of paintings for a party at work. Can you guess the theme?

I’m thinking I’ll stick to experimenting with ink, pen, and colored pencils. The vibrance is really making me happy right now.
