Art Website

I finally sat down and created a website for myself. It is in the very beginning stage, but I am glad to have something up and running. I have never created a website before this, so it is definitely a learning experience! I wanted to have a website to bring all of my social media sites, The Imag(in)e Project and just my own artwork together. It is also nice to see what kind of work I need to add to my portfolio to keep it updated.

Flight Doodles

I am on my way to Albuquerque, New Mexico! During my flight I decided to pull out my sketchbook that is usually within arms reach of me. The Flight attendants were entertained every time they walked by when they saw my progress. For some reason, their compliments seemed to make my day. It always seems to be my instinct to draw trees with my fine point sharpie, which was fine since the ride was a little bumpy. Trees are very forgiving. Since I was going to New Mexico, feathers seemed to be another good choice to doodle.

First Craft Show

Here are some photos from my first craft show in Lewisburg, PA! I wasn't sure what to expect but I think it went well. The stand that is holding my small prints is made from an old pallet. I was able to do most of my printing at my part time job at The UPS store. I was very impressed by their scanner and print quality. I wasn't sure what to print, so I made some prints from sketchbook pages and I also made some prints from The Imag(in)e Project paintings. I handed out lots of business cards, so I am hoping that will generate some commissions.

Freyja #42

Freyja is in love with "birdies" so it was really cool that I could find a bird in her creation! She was 13 months old when she put these colors on the canvas! Here is the before and after.

Portrait Commission

For this commission I was asked to paint a brother-in-law that had passed away. It was painted with acrylic on a 16x20 canvas. As usual, the photo does now do it justice.
