Happy Pumpkin Spice Season

Hey everyone! What is the first thing you think of when fall arrives? Pumpkin spice everything, of course! That is one of the things that I look forward during Fall. I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I do love pumpkin flavored desserts. Every Thanksgiving, I make a pumpkin spice cake with cream cheese frosting. I look forward to it every year! Even my brother, the pastry chef, requests me to make it. So I thought I would celebrate this wonderful flavor season with a drawing. I wanted to keep it pretty simple and classic. I think this would look great as wall art and home decor. I will definitely have to add it to my shops!

Wild & Free

Hey everyone! So it’s been a pretty heartbreaking week for our family. We recently lost our beloved pup Moe. It’s been really hard on our family since it happened so unexpectedly. We really loved him and he was a big part of our family. It probably hit me the hardest. He was my big fluffy fur baby. We will forever miss him! I drew this drawing the day he passed away without know what would happen after I had sketched it out. But after he passed, the phrase seemed so fitting for the situation. He is now free from pain and he will always have his wild spunk where ever he is. I decided to just paint some pretty watercolor flowers making a circular frame around the phrase. It really turned out pretty and was very therapeutic for me to paint this past week. Enjoy!

Green Field of Flowers

Hey everyone! It was a busy but fun weekend for my family. We have been painting trim in our house trying to eliminate all traces of the eighties from my house…lol! It’s been a project! Slowly bur surely we are getting it tackled. We also had a small birthday party for my niece at our house. She is turning 11 and starting middle school this year, so we wanted to make sure she had a fun celebration with swimming, pizza, cake and ice cream. It was a good change of pace with everything that is going on. It felt great celebrating something! This drawing was created this past week between projects. I think I have flowers on the brain. I have definitely been drawing inspiration from them on my past couple of pieces. I drew these whimsical flowers digitally using Procreate. I also used green as the primary color because it’s my all time favorite color. It soothes my soul! I hope you all enjoy this little bit of whimsy!

Watercolor Seahorse

Hey everyone! Here is a watercolor painting that I did recently. I did it on a whim and it turned out pretty cute. If I may say so! The first picture is of the initial pencil and pen sketch that I did. The second photo is of the finished painting. I recently uploaded it to my Society6 and Redbubble shops of prints and products. Definitely check it out!

Lazy Day

Hey everyone! I don’t know if you are like me, but today I have been just dragging my feet doing anything today. I am just tired with no motivation. And the worst is having to stop by the place I hate most, The Dentist. Don’t worry everyone, it wasn’t a bad visit! So today, I’m just going to go at my own pace. It is summer after all. Lazy days are always acceptable during the summer. I drew this using procreate. I just wanted to keep the lettering chunky, simple and to the point. Enjoy!

Summer Oranges

Hey everyone! This is the last piece I have made so far for my summer fruit series. I’m hoping to maybe make a couple of more, but we will see how the rest of the month goes. Today we are featuring the orange! I’m not going to lie…..I love orange flavoring but I do not like eating oranges. I just never have gotten on board with their texture. I know i’m weird, but I gladly own my weirdness…lol! I will say this, I do love their color and how vibrant they are. Oranges and lemons are the perfect citrus for summertime. I drew this series of fruits using Procreate. They turned out great as stand alone images and as a print of many products in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. If you love oranges and would like to add some zest to your life, check out my Society6 and Redbubble shops for it on prints and products. Enjoy!

Summer Strawberry Patch

Hey everyone! Here is a drawing I did recently that is part of my summer fruit series. Today’s fruit is strawberries! Strawberries are probably one of my favorite fruits to eat. Especially when they are ripe and deep red. We have many strawberry patches around here in KC that you can go and hand pick strawberries. It’s really fun to do! I drew these strawberries on my iPad using the program Procreate. I definitely wanted to capture a bright red strawberries with a nice blue background that looks like a summer sky. I just uploaded this design to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and products. Enjoy!

Sea Stained Glass

We have made it to June! I can’t believe it is already summer. Hopefully this summer will be full of pool time, popsicles on the deck and making fun memories. Once place that I wish we could visit this summer is the beach and ocean. It may just not happen this time around because of Corona virus. The one thing that I love to do while at the beach is looking for shells and sea glass. When I first started working on this watercolor painting, I didn’t know exactly what color story I was going to use. I ended up using blues and greens. The end result looks like a stained glass window using sea glass from the beach. It made my heart happy even though I wasn’t at the ocean. This painting is available on prints and product in my Society6 and Redbubble shops!

Group of Blue Pansies

Hey all! If you haven’t noticed I love drawing and painting nature. I tend to have a lot of flower and animal subject matter. What can I say I love nature more than people…lol! Recently I did a watercolor series of a moth and some flowers. This group of blue pansies is the final watercolor of that set. I started off by drawing out the pansies with watercolor pencils, so I could prevent pencil lines showing through the paint. Then I used many layers of watercolor to get to the final painting. I just uploaded this painting up on my Society6 and Redbubble shops. So if you love these pansies as much as I do, they are now available on prints, mugs, tees and masks. Remember to support small business and artists during these crazy times.

Watercolor Poppies

Hey everyone! Here is a watercolor painting that I worked on this past weekend. It is a painting of some Poppies. I have always liked Poppies for their name and how vibrant they are. They are just little bursts of color that pop up! I posted a work in progress photo on my Facebook and Instagram and here is the finished painting. It really turned out better than I had imagined.
