Green House Within the Trees

A little wrinkled, since it took a trip to the lake before being completed. This one was a tricky one restarted  twice before getting the layout on the page almost right. Wish I had worked a little larger; though it frames the page nicely. 

I feel that its work is more like a green house living above the rest; rather than a purely playful tree house. This one is freshly on my Etsy shop, if you would like a copy be sure to pick it up before I run out only making so many prints.

Details: Ink pen, paper.

Stepping Out into The Unknown

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to announce the reopening of sweet pink ink pen Etsy shop. Right now I am focusing my efforts on my tree house prints. I don't know anyone else right now that is creating such works and interested to see if people are really interested in my creative adventures.

They make me so happy and feel a great need to share joy and sense of creative adventure with others. Please take a peak and let me know what you think and if there is a work that you love that you don't see on my shop yet let me know that as well. It's still a work in process but feel that I have a number of works up to get the ball rolling. My hope is that it will inspire some adventures souls to step out into there childlike imagination once again especially if that person has lost that sense of wonderment. 

And for something completely different and because I feel the need to share a work with each posting here is an older drawing of my topsy-tervy muffin experiment. A favorite quick drawing that I created one chilly morning last October.

Feeling a little rough around the edges but still love this work. Another work pulled from my homemade sketchbook hence the odd shape of the page. 

Had this amazing urge to use color again, I know amazing... I was strongly encouraged when I was a much younger artist to pick out the actual colors in my subject matter. That nothing was black or solidly one color to see the beauty in the play between light and dark. Shadows are rarely gray but takes on a darker shade of whatever is around it. 

Details: Color pencil, ink pen on Bristol board.

Lily x2

So these are from a good while ago if your note the date, just got my scanner issue under control. They are included in my home made sketch book creation. Sorry about the delay since my last works were shared its been an intense couple of months and my life may or may not been flipped over couple times over.

Something I do love is to take the same subject matter and redraw using a different style. Seems to give me a better perceptive of the same subject. These are the result of an intense Lily cutting study that I undertook shortly after moving to Chapel Hill. They were the most lovely color purple and couldn't bring myself to undertake the daunting task of rendering them up to the level that I wanted with the media that I could find in my bag.

Details: Sketch book, graph-paper and sketch paper, marker, highlighter, ink pen.
