I’ve been thinking about things that give me inspiration and keep me creating. As I thought about it these 11 things came to mind.
A few weeks ago I did a survey blog post to find out what type of art you’d like to see more of from me. Well, this blog post is to let you know what the results were.
Here’s my latest artwork! Like I’ve always said, “when inspiration strikes just go with it!” I have to tell you though, I’ve been thinking a lot about my artwork. What kind of art would you like to see me create more of? As you know, the thing with me is that I love creating. But,Continue reading “Poll – What kind of art would you like to see more from me?”

It’s been an extremely busy few months. I haven’t been around for a bit but still managed to sneak in time to create this pine tree artwork. The season’s changed so quickly I can’t believe it’s already nearly the end of December. I’ve decided to show my appreciation for the pine trees with this artwork.Continue reading “Pine Tree Artwork”
Remember when you were little and you’d look up at the clouds and see different images? What do you see in these clouds? There is something so magnificent about the colours of the sky as the sun sets I had to capture a little piece of it in this creation. Check out this blog post about the Pastel Clouds creation.
My fascination with marbles started as a child. I loved getting to go through those small bags of 25 or 30 marbles that were bought from the store. I would take each one out of the bag and examine it. Looking at all the different colours, and how they blended together. So I decided to paint one. Check out this blog post all about it.
It’s been a while. A lot has been going on and still is but, I missed you all and also needed to write so here goes. I’ve been studying the clouds. A new time lapse video has been added once a week either on Friday or Saturday morning. Read this post and check out the YouTube video on my channel.
For the original whispy tree image I drew the background by hand. For the purpose of these videos I downloaded a background image.
Here’s a short time lapse video of me using watercolour pencil crayons for this Fruit Sketch. I haven’t used watercolour pencil crayons and I haven’t drawn a cherry in years so this is a real novice video. It’s a learning process and we can learn together right?

One of my favourite things as a child was finding a feather. If I caught a glimpse of one gently gliding to the grass, well, what a beautiful, magical day that would be. The brighter the colour of the feather, the better my day went. A red feather, I automatically knew it could only be from a parrot.
Missing the days when I could go to bed, sit on a couch, or even on a bus and drift off. Not a care in the world of whose shoulder my head was resting upon or what dusty window was supporting me. Meditation distracts me from the things I usually focus on like: When is Season 5 of Insecure coming out?
I’ve been challenging myself to do more positive self talk lately. And as I was sketching this portrait of Mohammad Ali I was thinking about how he talked about himself. He was a prime example of how we should all talk about ourselves. Putting yourself out there and saying positive things about yourself might notContinue reading “Who Are You Talking To?”

Have you ever reached for a particular spice or seasoning and found the jar sitting on the shelf way in the back of your cupboard empty? It makes me want to yell every time it happens to me. Maybe it was because I was looking for something to sketch but, this jar actually had something in it. I love using bay leaves when I’m making pasta sauce, lasagna, chilli…the list goes on. Can you tell, I’m a little bit hungry but, let’s get back to avoiding cooking by looking for things to sketch.

I’ve been sketching since I was a child. I can’t tell you enough that it’s one of my favourite ways to relax. Concentrating on an object and breathing life into it helps me relax. I draw things as I see them and find the process to be restorative. The best thing about sketching is thatContinue reading “3 Things Sketching Taught Me”

A while back one of my readers requested that I draw a firefly. Thank you for your request and here it is.

Apologies to those of you whoContinue reading “You Wanted a Firefly?”
She waited for the website to update that the purchase had gone through. Fast forward to Christmas morning. It was one of Janette’s friends that had bought her artwork. He texted her wondering, why his order was taking so long.
I had decided to draw for Sunday’s blog post long before my technical difficulties. But we all know how that went. Sorry to disappoint but, real things sometimes happen to old computers. And no matter how many times you try to force quit nothing happens. Staring at an ever-churning spinning rainbow can make any patientContinue reading “5 Things No One Will Tell You About Ladybugs”

Does anyone else sit around staring at their phone rather than doing the things they really enjoy? Or watching Netflix and focusing on what the characters say, do or live through? Often times thoughts and ideas pass through my mind without ever getting out. I don’t even draw anything for days on end.
Hi, Today’s post is different than any post I’ve done before. Last week I decided to draw a picture of a cassette. This is the picture.
Breaking up isn’t easy to do. Unfortunately, things just aren’t working out between us anymore. I have tried my best. Calling you a few days after Christmas.

Hey Everyone, short post today. The other day, I decided to do a sketch. I don’t know about anyone else who sketches but for me sometimes I’m unsure of what or who I will be drawing.
