My cousin and her cat


My second cousin and her cat came to visit us in Florida around Christmas time and they love it here so much, they’ve decided to stay. As a little gift before she moves into her new place, I made this whimsical ink and watercolor  “illustrative portrait” for my cousin and gave it to her this morning. My cousin loved it and said I even “got” the little birthmark over her cat’s nose just right. I love when my artwork brings smiles. To me, that’s what it’s all about.

What’s in front of me

It’s the first day of summer. Yesterday, we celebrated Father’s Day with a trip to a local nursery and botanical garden. I took lots of photos to use as references for upcoming sketches and paintings, and I look forward to sharing them with you in the coming weeks. This is just a little doodle I did up in my Artist’s Loft. Sometimes when I don’t know what to draw or paint, I just draw or paint whatever’s in front of me. Literally.
