The Drawing of the Three

On October first, my husband and I threw a huge party celebrating our recent marriage. My sister Maria, my sister Brianna, and I got our hair done together. As the three of us are artists, we each drew a sketch while waiting for our turn in the seat. This is one of the very few blog posts that will include drawings I did not make. I am the oldest of the three. Maria is five years younger than I am. Brianna is ten years younger than Maria.

The Clayton House

Last night, I attended my last college party ever. One of my closest friends just graduated. This marks the end of an era. To commemorate the occasion, I painted a picture of the table on which I’ve played countless games of Kings, War, Bull, Clever Endeavor, the Drawing Game, and other drinking favorites.

It was a fun time, but, you know what? I’m happy to end that chapter of my life. I was never very good at beer pong.

Join in sketchbook Saturday!

For over a year, I have been posting a drawing from my sketchbook almost every Saturday. This habit helps motivate me to keep a sketchbook. It also encourages understanding of the fact that not every drawing needs to be a masterpiece. I’ve found, as an artist, sometimes there is more of myself in a quick scribble than in a completed painting.

My goal this year is to involve more people in Sketchbook Saturday. If you should decide to participate, please link to your sketch in the comment section below. If you have a Twitter account, label your weekly sketch as #sketchbooksaturday. I will look at everyone’s sketches and retweet a few a week. It is an ambitious New Years resolution, but one I plan to try. Lets make 2010 more artistic than any year before it!

Maybe this will catch on, maybe it won’t. I plan on keeping up the habit either way. It has improved my art and my enjoyment of life.

Today’s sketch is “Parts of a Party”. Ink on paper.

I Remember That.

This drawing was done at a high school graduation party I attended earlier this summer.  I was the weird adult sitting quietly and drawing the teenagers’ table. It’s OK though, because only other uncool grown ups like myself even noticed.

I am the featured visual artist in thier Knick at Knight weekend event. Some of my pieces will stay on sale at the shop for the duration of the holiday season.

Stop by at one of these wonderful venues sometime this month.

Fiesta

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.
