Don’t sweat it!

Here’s my latest drawing, “Don’t sweat it”, on Ampersand pastelbord using colored pencil and neocolors. This piece is part of my fun floral series where I am trying to infuse humor into everyday flower scenes. My intention is to portray the flower out of it’s natural state and explore how life extends beyond the subject.  In everyday life we all need a dose of humor now and again to get us back in touch to our child within. So I hope this brings a smile to you today. A smile is a contagious thing – Give one to the world and the world will give it right back to you!

New Floral work

It’s spring and I really miss visiting the Tulip festival back in Washington. I used to go there every year and always enjoyed looking at the beautiful bed of tulips. Hopefully I will get to go there next year.

I actually started this piece on the Canson Mi-tientes Touch paper and I had a very difficult time working on that support. It did not do well with wet media plus I could not add a lot  of layers of  colored pencils. So I went back to my favorite support, the  Ampersand pastelbord.

I decided to give a humorous twist to this piece , here’s “Relationship Anxiety” – 12 x 16 neocolors and colored pencils on grey pastelbord.
