“Time Flies” Now Available for Purchase

Time Flies - whimsical art in colored pencil and ink

Time Flies – whimsical art in colored pencil and ink

This one means a lot to me personally. Young women fall through time, becoming old by the time they reach bottom. But hourglasses can be flipped…

I think this would be great for a journal cover or a whimsical take on the “over the hill” birthday card. Great for wall art as well.

Also available on bags, phone cases, laptop skins and more in my RedBubble shop.

Working at Night

Doing art at night under an Ottlite

Doing art at night under an Ottlite

I’ve been working on coloring my Mortality drawing today. I decided to go with colored pencil, mainly because there are a lot of tiny spaces to color in this piece.  I like the results so far, and can’t wait to see this finished.  I think of it as a cute expression of a kind of serious subject, but I think it would make a good “getting older” type birthday card, too.

I worked bit by bit throughout the day in between all the other things I was doing, and when it got dark I didn’t have to stop thanks to my Ottlite. I just have a cheap folding desktop model and it has made it possible for me to keep working after dark on many occasions. Well worth it in my opinion!  Highly recommended if you do color-sensitive work and don’t want to be limited to working in daylight hours.  (No one paid me to say that, pinkie swear.)

This will take some time…there are forty-nine little ladies, each needing some undivided attention when her time comes.  I post my progress here or on the social media sites listed in the sidebar.

Peace.

Work in Progress: A Crow Looking Down on his Hoard

Crows are interesting creatures.  They’re very intelligent, but also easily distracted.  That sounds like some of my favorite people.  Crows have been known to gather up whatever pretty objects catch their eye, building sometimes impressive collections. They are like everyday dragons in our own back yards, stealing our treasures and building up hoards.
