Polar Bear

There has been a full month to think about the #pinchpunchpost Polar Bear June 1 challenge, but, of course, I waited until down to the wire.  Well, I exaggerate. It’s only 9:30 pm on May 31…

Gouache Paintings

Two paintings done in late February 2015.  Preppy Cat was a response to a #colour_collective for a shade of orange that I no longer recall.

Ink and Watercolor Gallery

From Early 2015, several ink and watercolor pieces:

More ink, not all done for Inktober

More ink drawings done over the past five months.

Even more Inktober!

Still trying to get images re-post from the Drupal site.  Yes, I could try to rebuild the database in WordPress.  I could also spend a gorgeous Saturday afternoon pounding my thumb with hammer.  Path of least resistance: re-post!

Walk Time

Actually my dog, Lula, looks pretty much like this – especially when I put on my running shoes.  She is ever optimistic.

Topiary madness

If you have never been to the Ladew Topiary Gardens, north of Baltimore, take a trip.  Take your lunch.  Take your sketchpad.  This was done from memory and inspiration.

An Experiment in Acrylics

An experiment in acrylics, trying to paint larger, work looser, have flatter imagery.  I am not totally comfortable with the end result, but it did get a number of retweets on Twitter.  And it was pretty fun to paint.
