Like I said, I have mixed feelings about back to school .The upside is definitely the routine and time factor. So , I jumped right in and started off the morning right with a cup of coffee and some whimsical sketching . Letting the pen flow in the quiet of the morning is very meditative . Before everyone is up and the morning rush to get to school takes over, I find that sketching/ painting/ drawing definitely gives me a sense of contentment as I start the day.
The week is off to a good start .. Hope yours is too 🙂
I’m excited ! I have a new phone. I have a new phone case. The phone case was designed by me. Hence the excitement !
Back in 2012, when I lived in Sydney, Australia, I sold my artwork through Etsy and my own website. In early 2013, I moved back to the U.S and I took a 2 year break from the online world of art , social media – except to keep in touch with friends and family.
Anyway, the artwork on my phone is from 2012 and is one of my favorites. The purple /mauve/plum background is acrylic paints and the leaves are digitally drawn. You’ll find it in my Society6 store that I had populated with some of my favorite designs back then.
While the iPhone case is pretty , I can’t say I have much of a future as a hand model !
I’ve been incognito .. and I have no excuse. But here’s a bunch of stuff I did over the last 9 days. I got caught up with the gorgeous gowns at the Cannes Festival . I couldn’t help but illustrate Aishwarya Rai’s gown by Elie Saab. Quite the mermaid look, don’t you think ?
Florals for my watercolor practice …
Working on this spread to create a pattern and its emerging.
Cocktails for Friday 🙂
And then … Memorial Day weekend.. I was sapped . No energy and I was in my PJs for two days. No fun . This is what I pretty much looked like with a gorgeous day outside. No fun .
Thankfully, I was back to normal on Monday – armed and dangerous 😉
Today has been a slow day … I hope to pick it up and create more soon.
