Found time and inspiration for this week’s Diva Challenge! Both are going to my sister as art birthday cards. Shhh!
This one’s been done for a little while. I just haven’t made the time to officially post it until today. This portrait features two kindred spirits, Jess and Copper. Copper is one of the wonderful horses at Cedar Creek Therapeutic Riding Center. Jess is one of the many volunteers who help keep Copper groomed and […]
I’m still here! Unintentionally took a long break from my easel. Life has me pretty busy. Getting everything in order to start our next homeschooling year. Been sick. Been sewing. Been feeling rather frazzled and crazy… because I haven’t been drawing. So today I sat myself down and drew this… Debating on how to paint […]
Just finished this today! It is a portrait of a friend and awesome storyteller. The link to his website is below the picture there. He’s also here on Facebook. And he’s a published writer too.

I think I’ve finally gotten a feel for this tangle! Thank you Laura Harms for this week’s challenge. Gave it a couple of shots below. The left is ink & graphite on watercolor paper; the right is ink and colored pencil on bristol. The one on the right is also going out as a birthday […]

Two efforts this week for the Diva’s Weekly Challenge: Diva Dance & Crescent Moon duotangle. Different sizing this week so that I could turn them into cards and send them out to a couple of people near and dear to my heart. I hope they enjoy them!
Coming back after all those faces last month with this week’s challenge from Laura Harms. The challenge was to use the tangle pattern Charlie by Erin Olson. It’s a new one for me. Never used it before. Though in the tile below, I didn’t really use it as much as making it more of a […]
Whew! Did these today first thing and last thing. With lots of errands in between. And with them wrap up the second 29 Faces Challenge I’ve participated in. I can’t recommend this exercise enough! Both times I’ve learned and accomplished things I never thought I could. And met some pretty neat artists along the way. […]
