This was done based on several sketches I did at the Cleveland Fine Art by the Hand this past November when the traffic got slow. Cleveland skies get quite overcast this time of year and I though illustrating a floral was a nice change of pace.
Okay, I know Christmas is in less than two weeks, but it has been unseasonably warm. Yesterday it felt like a warm day in March. If I didn't see the Christmas wreath on my door, I would have thought time traveling was possible. All this year, the weather has been a bit out of sorts. March was like February, April like March and so one. But these last two days, I have seen men sporting shorts, and I live in the Cleveland area!
Yes, finally, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I have not posted here for a while. Missed November completely. I have been going through a few annoyances that have kept me away from creating, as well as kept me in the BLAH zone! Finally, as I am recovering from my second cataract surgery, it looks like I am getting out of the woods to see the lights of Christmas!
So here with a little Christmas cheer I post here,
I am a designer and illustrator with many years of experience designing in the social expression industry. I have always loved designing and experimenting in all kinds of media my whole life.
When not designing my own work, I work with my husband, illustrator and photographer Norman Drake as co owner of YOURPRECIOUSPORTRAITS.COM.
I would enjoy hearing from you.
