Happy Thanksgiving

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving everyone! Though I could have rushed through it, I took a couple evenings to complete this painting of our family's Thanksgiving edible goodness. The richness of the food deserved equally rich color on the page. I have so much to be thankful for!

Little Buddy

Once in a while my little buddy finally sits still enough for me to draw or paint him. He didn't hold still the whole 20 minutes of the sketch, but long enough for me to capture his shape. While I painted him he snuggled next to me so I can't really complain. However, white fuzzy fur is not the easiest thing to paint in watercolor! Pencil and watercolor, 5 1/2" x 8".

New Ornament

I love to make and receive handmade ornaments, and enjoyed participating in an ornament exchange this past weekend. I hope the person who received the ornament I made enjoys hers as much as I will enjoy this little bird one made by another person! I think it made a nice subject for a 20 minute sketch. Pencil, 5" x 7".
