A few of my favorite things (October version)

 Botticelli painting...
Slinky black cats
 costume illustrations my kids sketched and handed me... they want me to make these for Halloween

Good news... they still make life savers in rolls:)

Patterns patterns patterns

Almost finished with this vanity set.  It was white but I painted it for my daughter's room in her favorite color.  There's a skirt that goes around the table too.  This was my mom's, then mine growing up and now, third generation!  Next up... painting a masculine one for my son.  I've been scouring the junk stores looking for a simple desk but no luck.  Will keep up the hunt...
Happy Monday!

A Friend's Living Room

This little drawing doesn't do her beautiful house justice.  But.. here's a little snippet.  I'll add some more shading, etc.  De LaTour is still waiting for me to add color... maybe this weekend.  Happy Friday;)

De la Tour

Messing around... drawing some figures from a beautiful Georges de La Tour book.  Unfinished and thinking for now.  Will soon add color! More over at my Flickr...
 Happy Autumn:)

Open Door

Here's a little update of what I'm painting right now...  I love the gothic arches and gates.  The color scheme may get completely made over.  It's all in limbo right now.  Posted a few ink drawings over at my flickr:)  Into the garden today...  Happy Friday!!

The Ocean...

These things say summer to me because they are all about the ocean.  And the beach...  I love specimens, especially from somewhere like the water where it is so uncontrollable and wild.  These are just footnotes, fragments and little jokes really.

We are stretching out summer as long and far as possible.  A few more visits to the water and then back to school.  This summer has gone by way too fast.  Hope your summer is going well:)
