“Lady” is Finished!

There are many things I like about the creative process.  One of them is when I’m finished with a drawing, I sign my initials on the front, I stand back to look at it, and I’m proud of the way it turned out.  It’s one of the best feelings in the world and how I […]

“Lady” – Work in Progress

I started this drawing two weeks ago and am happy to work on it again (click here to see the first sketch). I’ve mostly drawn around the horse, adding details to the stable as I move from the back to the front of the composition. The horse is taking shape! The finished piece will be […]

Learn to Let Go

One of the most common questions I receive as an artist: is it difficult to let go of your art when someone buys it?  And the answer is yes, and no.  But mostly no. Here are a few tips that have worked in helping me not become overly-attached to my art.  And if you are […]

Rescued

Our miniature schnauzer Hannah is a funny little thing.  Lately we’ve caught her getting “stuck” at the bottom of the stairs, afraid to climb up.  My guess is she tripped one day coming up the stairs and is afraid of a repeat.  She acts in a similar way when she crosses the hardwood floors in […]

Beejeweled – 8×10 Original Pastel Drawing

It’s finished!  This is the most fun I’ve had with pastel to date.  I was happy from the start with my initial sketch and general color palette.  There were lots of moments where I felt giddy (yes, I actually like that word) at what was forming on the drawing table.  Don’t get me wrong – […]

Pastel Work In Progress

I started this pastel drawing over the weekend and can’t wait to see how it turns out.  (I ♥ girlie pinks and purples.)  Last year I visited the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and found plenty of inspiration there, including this flower and its buzzing visitor. Of all the colored mediums, pastel feels the most familiar to […]
