In rainbow order...

Dried paint in my little dishes. I'm working in fairly close to primary colors for my current project.

An older drawing

Here is a painting in the studio, more or less permanently stuck to the wall. I had to take the picture in situ. (Okay, I merely wanted to say "in situ".)

I was obsessing on sea invertebrates last year. And paisley. Sometimes in the same drawing. I could go back to that obsession at the slightest provocation, flowers being a distraction at the moment.

I can't even remember what I used. Markers and paint pens. As I recall, it took forever to dry because the surface was not the correct one to use. An educational project that worked out.

I am also hesitating to show anything in the studio at this time because I plan to do a before / after once we put in the wood laminate flooring next month.

More stuff...

Here is another simple motif. This one was lots of fun. Why aren't gel pens more legitimate to artists? Scrapbookers don't seem to be embarrassed to use them.

gouache, gel pens, on smooth cardboard

Here is the finished drawing of the Hawaiian red ginger plant in the moleskine. This was done with colored pencils in a more traditional style.

P.S. Man! Does this family need a DSLR camera! I swear, that ginger bud is NOT as overworked as it looks in that photo. However, I do think I need to remove the "wax bloom" and apply some fixative at this point. (I just forgot.)

New flowers motif

I guess I'm trying to start a new Decorative Arts movement.

Or I am channeling Spring. Whatever, here it is:

colored pencil, gel pens

New t-shirt design
