Here she is in all her pinkness. What do you think? Would you make friends with her if you met her in the farmyard?
A few more Jolly Holiday allstars for Christmas
You can find these cuties in my Red Bubble store. Great for cards, tees or just a cute gift.
You are beautiful Celtic deer inspires me
When I was a ceramic artist a long time ago, my top selling work was always about animals in one way or another. I did a series for quite a few years on mimbres found in the southwest deserts. They were fantastic animals that fluxed between reality, imagination and a connection of the heart that inspired cultural ties. I sold most of them to the Palm Springs Desert Museum in Palm Springs, CA which had just opened at the time.
So here I am much later in life going back thousands of years to seek animal inspirations again. This time, the Celts peaked my interest as I have been studying their art for a while now. They mastered the field of design in jewelry, stitching, carving, metal work of any kind. so playing in PS I am trying my hand at exploring new colors for me and the influence of living in Mexico has given me hootspa (sp?) to go vivid. I think this is a step up from the little pen and ink sketch done with magic marker on watercolor paper, from where it started out.

I am not a Chiwawa dog in Spanish
This little guy is a welsh corgi. Of course he is. Once upon a time a little girl wanted him strictly because she thought he was one of cute Mexican dogs they call a chiwawa.
He made a little ruffled bark and told her, “No, I am not a chiwawa dog.” She took him
home anyway. They lived happily ever after.
I have combined my love of fonts; this one is Dino Kids, with pencil sketching and digital ribbon and bow, drawn on my Cintique by Wacom. enjoy. purchase
Yellow Koi Green Waters
I’m painting more fish these days. These koi are imaginary and don’t hold true as anatomically correct. That is another reason they are a respite from “correct” drawing and are like a little vacation for me. Koi are valuable and bred for their size and beauty. How wonderful is that? I am having fun with this so I’ll let it be. The original will have some gold leaf to sparkle it up a little. That is the next stage so for now, this will do. I will try to remember to post the embellished version when complete.
I used a fine black marker and a fine white ink over the darks to enhance the patterns. I love painting the deep water with transparent watercolors and tried to use motion and several thin layers to give a feeling of depth.
Here is a print on textile.
