Safari :)

Friday, May 20, 2011


Pumpkin says "It's a jungle out there, so I'd rather stay in..." I've been oil painting lately & loving it, but wanted to drop by to say "Hey!". This is an 8" x 10" oil painting on gallery-wrapped canvas.

Safari illustration friday

These three are off on a safari, may not be jungle animals, may not be tropical but it will be an adventure!
The cat and dog are really good friends. Perhaps this can be added to the challenge of our pets?

IF: Beginner

These little guys are about to take their first solo flight.

I will be inking it for my weekly coloring page and then adding color to add it to my portfolio. So it's also what I'm working on.

Doggy Heaven

A little dog of a friend died last week and of course she and her husband are heart broken.

Toedoe was a stylish girl who died of old age.

She wore a pony tail in her hair, rhinestones on her collar and rarely left the house without being fully decked out.

Her up in heaven how can be anything but dolled up and heavenly.

I just posted on IF. It is a watercolour. I love dogs They are furry loving spirits.

IF Begginer

I remember the days when my children first began feeding themselves! More of the food ended up on them instead of in them!

All the details are there so if your in or around the North Jersey area and your hungry this is the place to be on that date! I'll be posting and re-posting it just as a reminder to everyone on my blog in the next couple of weeks.

Happy Mothers Day

This for all the wonderful Mothers out there!

Happy Mother's Day

To all the wonderful and beautiful women who visit this blog

Even if you are not a mom, maybe a sister, aunt,

So lock the children outside and tell that man to make
a run to the Cheesecake Factory and get you some good
eats and of course watch all the chick flicks you want!

What I'm Working On

I sketched these little bubbies a while ago. I'm prepping for my big annual trade show and I decided that i needed to bite the bullet and watercolor them so they could go on a banner.
That's what I'm doing this week, designing banners, this is number five of six. I was hoping I'd be done Wednesday. Tomorrow for sure! Back on the horse ;)

I'm working on - SuperKate

I'm working on these little drawings of SuperKate and her magic cape for a competition.  SuperKate can't fly too well at first, but she gets the hang of it and in the second picture is in a tree with her friend Will (who also flies) and has eaten a lot of mulberries, hence the ink spatter.
I discovered a wonderful paper for pen and ink - actually a laser printer/copier paper, Xerox Colotech which at 5c/sheet for 120 gsm is really wonderful to draw on.  It's very white and slightly shiny, absolutely frictionless and doesn't bleed even if you pause a moment with the pen on the page.
