Make It Work.

I was not a happy camper when this happened. Especially since it was my own fault ... puppies don't make the best photography assistants, after all.


There was a time when I would have just thrown these away and started over. Probably after a major meltdown involving foot stomping, crying and scissors.

But that's so last year.
Now my motto is Make It Work, so I did my best to do just that. I added color this morning.
This evening I redid the linework and now I have a pair of unique, one-of-a-kind tennis shoes...
...that are two sizes too small for me and one size too small for the girl. So they will probably end up in my Etsy shop in a day or so.

Junior Art Director.

After doodling shoes for myself and my cousin's two girls, of course the girl decided she wanted a pair. Being the Junior Art Director that she is, however, she had a couple of suggestions.

She specified the flowers she wanted and requested two other items.

A panda and a hedgehog. 
I did a bonus panda and hid it a little better ... since I'd always intended to hide a panda amongst the blooms anyway.

A Sunny Weekend Needs Color.

This past Winter really wasn't worth complaining about ... unless you want to discuss its length.

The nice thing about a long Winter, though?

It makes you appreciate the sunshine and blue skies that come with Spring.

Special Requests.

A couple of things I created recently for a good friend and my cousin. I hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Finished the big painting yesterday and now I'm getting the next project going. I like having ideas.

The Hard Part.

I'm so close, I want to finish now and that's not a good idea. Occasionally, I have to wait for the paint to dry.

Hand smears suck.

Halfway... Sort Of.

I've outined half of the flowers...

But there's still adding lines to the inside of petals and color on the centers.

And the words for the center of the painting.

More like a third done maybe.
