"Lunch Break - WV" - Berry Drawing.

What can I say? The foodie in me just couldn't pass up the beautiful mix of colors in my bowl.

An update:

It's been busy around here lately, hence the lack of recent posts. I'm hoping to have a new drawing posted in the next couple of days though, so until then, here is a general update on things.

Last weekend the local autumn festival took place downtown. Unfortunately, I couldn't attend the event, but I did submit one of each of the new prints into the art show. I wasn't sure how they would fare (not being the originals), so imagine my surprise when I heard that I had come away with a ribbon as well as a few sales! "Press - WV" won "Best in Show", and led to the sale of prints and two originals.

As hard as it can sometimes be to part with drawings, I'm stoked. This was the first show I had participated in in probably 8 years. It's given me the motivation to really start putting myself out there when it comes to shows and art groups.

Prints of "Press - WV" can be found HERE.

Until next time, here are a few shots of the mess that is the drafting table in my studio.

"Pepper Bin - WV" - Marker & Colored Pencil Drawing.

Our would-be day off ended abruptly this morning after a call from S's scheduler. Looks like he is spending the morning/afternoon at work and I've found myself at the drawing board. I have a potentially cute drawing that I've been working on for a while now and it is testing my patience. Hopefully I can wrap it up today before our amended plans for the day resume.

Until then, here is a piece I finished up in the last couple of weeks.

"Porch - TN"

This little patinaed guy sits on one of my favorite porches in Tennessee (if, that is, you don't count the massive, dive-bombing June bugs and blood-thirsty mosquitoes. The insect life in that state is insane, I tell you).

I am happy to report that I received the proofs for three of my marker & pencil drawings on Saturday, and they are gorgeous! 


The print-makers are currently working on the first round of prints which will hopefully be here by the end of the week/beginning of next. 

The prints available will be:

"Press - WV"

"Porch no. 2 - NC"

"Silhouette - TN"

The giclĂ©e prints will be open edition and printed on Hahnemuhle Bamboo fine art paper. The actual image size will be 4" x 4" with a 1" white border, hand titled & signed. 

I anticipate having them available for sale in both my Etsy shop and locally by the end of next week!
