On my way to work I noticed a lovely pair of pigeons perched on a traffic light--just the two of them above the cars zooming below.

Fall & Winter highlights

Posts have been far and few between due to our move! But here are a few sketches from the Fall and Winter.

The zebras are drawn from life during weekly trips to the zoo. As for the bears, I've always been fascinated by bears. I had one bear encounter many years ago when I did bear patrol for camp. We saw the bear at night, one massive shadow and the sound of leaves and gravel crunching under it's feet. My friend and I waved the bear away. It sauntered off uninterested.

Penguins, Sherlock Holmes, and Tea!

A dear friend of mine will be married in a couple of months. The drawing for her bridal shower invite is a combination of her favorite things:

penguins, Sherlock Holmes, and high tea. These images include the rough sketch and cleanup!

Maui drawing journal

Went to Maui for a week. We stayed in Lahaina on the west coast of the island. These watercolors highlight the bamboo rainforest Bill and I explored, the sugar cane fields, the bay next to Lahaina where we saw MANY humpback whales and their calves, quick sketches at a beach, and one of my favorite highlights of the trip, sitting under a 150 year old banyan tree in downtown Lahaina and just painting. The building above is the ABC store and the Front Street Grill. Aloha!
