Illustration Friday: Strong

"Strong and balanced, though sometimes hard to see"

painting on paper 10x10"

"Strong and balanced, though sometimes hard to see" 

my response to the #illustrationfriday topic

#strong. Painting on paper. The theme of balance seems to be creeping back in to my work. Such a difficult thing to manage.

This one was a fun experiment for me. The path and rectangular structures are collaged in and painted/drawn with the rest of the composition.

Illustration Friday: Reflection

10 X 14" Watercolor and Ink on Arches.

Today, I was notified that I was selected by the jury for the inaugural Jackalope Art Fair in Pasadena. I thought it might be a fitting tribute to take on the topic of reflection with that Jackalope in mind. This is the result.

Illustration Friday: PAPER

A bit of a stretch I know, but thought as I haven't been submitting with all the busy-ness of late.

I am making these paper ornaments from
archival prints of my work.
