Custom Couple Watercolor Painting

This is my second watercolor couples portrait. I really enjoy painting two people that are in love. It is my hope that more of these types of commissions roll in. The first was a wedding present, this will be a Christmas gift. Chemistry between lovers is not easy to capture, but when the paint finally catches it, the whole piece shines.

Video Game Art for Etsy

I am a part of the Etsy Gamers Team. We are a group of people who enjoy Etsy and gaming. Every month we each create an item inspired by one of our favorite video games. The game of the month is chosen by the winner of last month’s challenge. You may remember the ACEO I painted for January’s game, The Path.

February’s game was Left 4 Dead, a personal favorite of mine. This witch was my submission.

March’s game of the month is Katamari Damacy.  Below is my illustration of the Katamari Prince dancing his little heart out.

Both of these original works have sold. Prints of the Prince and Witch can be found in my Etsy shop.

Joyous Elephant

This week I discovered the Historic Village of Smithville. I fell in love with the small collection of shops and restaurants upon my first visit. Today, I ventured into an art gallery called the Artist’s Eye.

Enough babble. Here is a small drawing I made of the carousel in Smithville. The elephant’s emotion is very similar to how I feel about the quickly approaching spring. What lovely weather we’ve had lately!
