Try it you'll like it

Trying hard not to fall behind on my personal challenge and 'agh!' I feel asleep early last night without creating a drawing... So much for perfection, huh? Well I plan to do two sketches this evening but for now I'm posting what I have done since my last post. :)

Shakespeare and Sakura


Hi there, and happy Tuesday! I had off for MLK day and was grateful for the break, I was able to get somethings done around the house.... Above is an illustration I created yesterday and hash tagged #handwritingmatters when I posted it on Instagram. This is because  National Handwriting Day is Saturday, January 23 and to celebrate, the company Sakura is hosting a giveaway. All you have to do is write your favorite quote on a piece of paper (preferably using one of Sakura’s products ;) ) and post the image, using the hashtag #handwritingmatterSakura will choose 10 prize winners between 1/15, Fri., and 1/25, Mon. Give it a try!
Have a great day,

Back to blogging in 2016


It's been awhile since I've blogged but I'm going to get back in the swing of it. I have things to say and share. Instagram is great for speed but I forgot how nice a blog is.

I started a new self-imposed 365 day challenge. I'm trying to make sure I do some art every day, as usual. Because I can let things go for weeks so if I have this slight pressure on me then I'll get it done.

Here is what I've done so far. PS I did not start on Jan 1st :) 










There are some awesome artists out the also doing a #365day challenge. One that I particularly like a lot is August Wren. Her work is so inspiring!  I also like to check out Sally Nixon, she has great illustrations. 

I'll do my best, it's all I can do! Will be back again tomorrow:))

End of May

 This month is winding down quickly, I can hardly believe how time passes so quickly! I celebrated the big 5-0 on the 15th:) I'm happy to say that I've been painting ALOT lately:)) so that means I neglect the ol' blog....I'll try to stay on track this summer:)




June is on the way and that means ICAD starts! Yay! I think this will be my fifth year at it. I like the discipline of it, for sure. Go check out it out and visit Tammy's blog. http://daisyyellowart.com/icad/icad-faq.html 
Happy Memorial Day!!
