Throwback Thursday

I have another Throwback for you all today. It's a YouTube time lapse drawing I did right around the release of the first Hunger Games movie. I had read all three books in four days just before seeing the premier. So all the details of the story were fresh in my head. While reading them, …

One day

Yesterday I took myself and my kids to a sign language that was being offered in the next town over. When we got to the place we parked where I saw more cars and tried to find the right building. Naturally, we went in the wrong one at first. We were greeted with a smile …

Throw back Thursday

This is some of my earlier work with dry pastels. I've always had a knack for blending colors together, but the thing with pastels, it gets messy. The texture is very similar to pressed charcoal and tends to get dusty as you use them. I'd say with that in mind, it is difficult for me …
