A pencil, pen, chalk and oil pastel sketch. It’s a bit Blade Runner inspired. I believe all but one sign is from a street in Kowloon – which I visited long ago… It’s taken me two weeks to finish this and manage to get it scanned and posted. I can’t wait until my kids are back in school! 😛
Expect to see more of me in September. I have several paintings to share! In the meantime, look for me, HeatherUnderground on Instagram.

In high school and college I studied Russian, and lived in Russia as an exchange student multiple times. Those experiences have stayed with me and influenced me in many ways. I even sign my paintings with my name in Russian: XE3EP, pronounced “heh – zher” as there is no “th” sound in Russian. I love communist propaganda posters. After I finished this pencil sketch, I attempted to color it using my rudimentary digital art skills…. I’m pretty happy with the results. Instead of “Workers of the World, Unite!” it’s “Artists of the World, Unite” which we all should, I think! 🙂
In case you missed my previous post, my Alice in Wonderland piano is on display this month at the Richmond Beach Library in Shoreline, WA. And it’s outside, so you can actually play it! 😛 There are 11 pianos on display along streets and in the parks of Shoreline, WA. A list of the locations is now available. You can download a map and read more about the pianos here.
The pianos will be on display for all of August. Hope you can stop by and check them out!
Piano Time in Shoreline, WA is back! While I didn’t have time to commit to painting a new piano this year, I’m proud to say that my Alice in Wonderland piano is out of hiding and has found the perfect home. For all of August, Wonderland will be on display at the Richmond Beach Library in Shoreline. I can’t think of a more appropriate home than a library! Best of all, it’s art you can touch. Visitors are welcome to come and play the piano. Unlike my cat, this toothy-grinned beast won’t bite…
Hi Y’all! I’ve been so incredibly busy since I returned from Portland, trying to get ready for the Wedgwood Art Festival. Those are my fingers from Thursday afternoon. See, very busy! 😛
Now I’m loopy because I still have so much to do before 10 am…. If you live in Seattle, please come by and say hi. My booth is in the back of the space, along 36th Ave. There’ll be lots of good art, good food, and good music! I’ll have lots of prints for sale, as well as some original paintings.
Here’s some of the details:
July 13 & 14,10 am – 5 pm, on the Hunter Farms Tree Lot at the corner of 35th Ave. NE and NE 80th St.
I’m heading to Portland later this week for 5 days of painting with Jesse Reno. This will be an advanced workshop in his studio. I can’t wait! It will be the third workshop I’ve taken with him. I love his teaching style and painting philosophies.
I’m looking forward to posting new work and photos from the trip. See you all soon!
