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.

Vegetables and Mile Stones

Below is a page from my wet sketchbook. It is a still life sampling of some fresh veggies.

Fresh Vegetables. Watercolor and pen on paper. 5″x8.5″.

My small mile stone is that, as of this morning, I have as many Twitter followers as I do Etsy hearts (615). I know that is a a triumph very few people can understand, but it makes me happy. The internet gives artists the wonderful opportunity to be seen.  It’s all we truly want. Thanks to sites like WordPress, Etsy, Facebook, and Twitter, my work is seen by thousands of people a month. Not many galleries can boast that kind of traffic. It must have been very frustrating to be an artist before the Internet.

What I’m trying to say is, thank you for taking the time out of your day to appreciate my work. It means a lot.
