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.

Getting Ready for Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot alike Christmas!

It seems Christmas is coming all to fast.
I have already seen Christmas lights go up in the neighborhood. The time to get things done evaporates...but here is what is so precious about this time of the season...grandchildren!
So of course this proud grandma celebrates them with gratitude as I have finished my Christmas card illustration. 

So here is my wish for all of you that read this:
may you be surrounded with love this season and find blessings in this new year!

Lakeside in the Fall

Lakeside in the Fall

I threw out my right arm and it has been hard to get motivated to do another illustration. But Autumn is always inspirational. Finally I started to play again. Here is my latest illustration.

An Attitude of Gratitude

Begin Each Day with a Grateful Heart

I came upon this sentiment and thought to illustrate it. I don't know who said it, but I do know when I practice it I feel better.
