Well, so much for sketchy Monday… as it’s almost midnight now! Thought I’d share a few sketches from my recent trip to New York City. The two at the end of this post were done on a rather turbulent plane, one with pen. I know… the crazy risks I take with art. 😉
I love all the stuff on top of the buildings in nyc. BTW, if you haven’t noticed, sometimes I like to add a filter to my sketchbook images….
Woo-hoo! I just finished up 3 commissioned painting last night. Now I just need to photograph them… It was really nice to get the job, but I’m also anxious to get back to work on some ideas floating around in my head.
l love playing around with self-portraits and was inspired late last night, after a week of too little sleep, to put this together. I know I’m not the only one who feels commission work is an emotional roller coaster, but in the end, a fun ride.
See you next week! xoxo
p.s. – ugh, just caught that my first version had a typo… now corrected! whew!
I did this sketch Saturday night while hanging out in bed and watching a show – whew, the wild life I live! I’m only posting the one sketch, as I’m caring for my daughter today, who has had incredibly high fevers for 5 days. Heading to the doctor soon…
Thursday, I went to the Open House for my new show at Shoreline City Hall. I’d like to say we had a huge turn out, but most people I know are still at work at 5pm, and not so close to Shoreline either. 😦 But… I had a good time anyway, and it was great to see my work up on the walls! Here’s some of the work. It’s up until the end of July.
There was a small piece in The Weekly Herald (05/25/12) about our show, and they printed one of my paintings for the article. It was quite a surprise!
