S is for Swan: New Look

S is for Swan

When I would sit in my both at art festivals, I become my worse critic. I start to pick candidates for updates and revisions.

I started to look at my original below thinking it could be better, juicier, tweaked to look better. I use to do this as a designer when I lived in greeting card world. It is an old habit. 

Better? I hope so! 
Check out the new look on pillows and tote bags!

H for Henry the Horse Goes Capital

H for Henry the Horse

The beauty of designing and creating digitally, makes it easier to change or update an illustration. Originally Henry was a lower case h.

 I noticed at shows that potential shoppers seem more drawn to letters designed as a capital letter rather than lower case.

So with a flick of the tail Henry went from lower case to upper case. I also added some more design elements interest in the foreground. 

I am hoping this turns out to be a capital idea.
Think he makes a great pillow too!

Forsythia Spring Bouquet

Forsythia Spring Bouquet

By February I really start to tire of winter and all its grays. I miss the colors of spring. So here is a new illustration to capture some of the colors and flowers that make spring so welcoming.

I also dedicate this to my mother whose birthday is tomorrow. She loved spring as well.

Happy Birthday Mom!

V is for Vase of Various Flowers (update)

V is for Vase of Various Flowers

It is not uncommon to review and update a piece when it comes to digital art. I think that is why before painting digitally many artists would do several paintings of a subject before they were satisfied.

Here is the original:

I decided to redesign the main flowers and add a few more leaves while  simplifying the background suggested foliage. 
That is the beauty of working in a digital medium unlike watercolor that is cast in cement. You can keep on playing.
