My mother....a Gourd Artist!

My mother recently turned to art. She had never drawn or touched a paint brush in her life, until a couple of years ago when she discovered Gourds. She has since fallen in love with the fine art of crafting these wonderful coveted items and is now one of the resident artists at the Art Bank in Fort Pierce. If you are in the area please stop by and check out her wonderful work. You can also find her Gourds on etsy.

This is a postcard I designed for her.

My Latest Paintings

I have been busy creating websites, logos, brochures and other promotional materials for various clients. My time has been so limited and I just don't have as much time to update this blog or participate on Illustration Friday. I'm not sure if anyone still visits, I've been updating so sporadically. I have considered walking away from this blog, but I think I will just continue to update when I can, even if it is not as often as it used to be. I hope you continue to stop by from time to time.

I finished a personal project so I thought I would share that here. It was really great to work on something different from my usual illustration style. I also worked with softer colors for a change.

My angel project has been put on hold since I just don't have the time to work on something so large at the moment.

I recently acquired an original mixed media artwork by my friend and very talented Nicole Merkens. I love it! Her work is so inspiring!
