Hat Gal travels Part I

I’m developing a character I’m calling “hat gal”. It’s not a very descriptive title I know but she’s hung around my body of work for a long time, so I’ve decided to give her a shot to come out and meet the public. I have a history of loving hats…wearing them, drawing them and knitting them. Here she is visiting 3 places: the leaning tower of Pisa in Pisa Italy, Sayulita Beach in Mexico and the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. Enjoy and post comments if you like. Feel free to send suggestions for their names.

I am getting back to blogging after another health issue. I’m getting tired of this happening to me so I’m not going to write about it, I’m just going to change the subject. I signed on to Instagram and am looking to meet new people and other artists I have things in common with. I’m not crazy about posting a lot on social media but in the art world, it is expected. Because of Covid and lockdown here as in many places all over the world, the restaurant and food business and food workers have been severely hit.
Being able to go to a little local cafe for a spot of breakfast is no longer a thing to take for granted. A few days ago I visited one such local cafe to find the people easy and nice as usual and the food wonderful too. Somehow they bring a little joy back in our lives. So I’ve decided to do a series drawn completely on my tablet. I’d like to pay homage to our stoic restaurant workers. This is a little different for me as I almost start all my art with a watercolor of some sort of pen and ink. I am challenging myself. Let me know if you like this or not. Here’s the link to view the artwork on my products.
