Some Groovy Chic!

I created this picture awhile back in my sketch book and am just now getting around to sharing it. I thought it was cute and I liked how the bright colors made her seem to jump from the page, especially when I used just some cheap old colored pencils to color her. :)

It's almost spring!

Well, I'm back. :) I've created some new pieces which I hope to scan and post soon, but for now, I thought I would share this little guy. He didn't scan very well since I didn't paint him on watercolor paper, but I'm hoping I can rescan him later and make him look better. I've been drawing a lot of these little hoot owls lately, and for some reason, they make me think of spring.

Monday, February 25, 2008 back soon!

Sorry I haven't posted, but I am creating and will post soon! Be sure to check back!

Paint or pastels?

This is one of the pieces I created this weekend. Can you tell if it's paint or pastels? To me, it looks like it's done with pastels, but it's actually done with acrylic paint. No one else seems to like it, but I really liked it, therefore I thought I would post it. :)

A little birdie told me...

I did this with my tablet and really liked the colors and layout. It makes me think of spring. :) Oh, and I was in my 'studio' this weekend, creating some new art, so hopefully I can get some of those pics up soon, too.

Lady bug

I may have already posted this some time ago, but I thought I would post it again because I just saw a lady bug. Plus, this seems to be the time of year they invade this area, so it seemed fitting to post it today. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

*This is one of those pieces I said I would past back when I was sick. It's something a little different, but I'm really pleased with how this turned out. I did several different types of pictures and painted them on blank cards using my own stencils.

More cactus'....cacti?

Okay, I seem to have an obsession with cacti lately. Not exactly sure why, but here is another one anyway. :) I did this one with my bamboo tablet.

Git along little doggies!

Another new pic with my tablet! :) I did this one using the watercolor brushes. I'm amazed at how close it looks to the real thing. It's simply amazing what technology can do, isn't it? :)

Back to blogging

I'm so excited! I finally got my paint programs running and here's what I've come up with so far. This first picture is by far the easiest and cleanest oil painting I've ever done. In case you can't tell, it's a picture of flowers.

This second picture was actually the first one I did. It's definately alot easier to do some things on a computer, yet there are things that are easier, and more fun, to do with real paints and brushes. Still, painting on a computer is really fun, too. :)

Plus, I still have the other project I mentioned the other day that I need to post. But it may be a couple of days before I can get to it. It's done with real paint and paper, too, so you can decide if you like my computer work better, or my real artwork. Or neither. :) (Or both!)
Either way, I'll try to post my other work soon. Until then, I'm going to see what I can come up with using my tablet. ;)
