Best Wishes, Warmest Regards

Hi everyone! We have been doing a lot of binging shows on Netflix this past year. What’s your favorite show? Our favorite show has been hands down Schitt’s Creek. I’ve been wanting to hand letter some phrases from this show. I finally got one completed over the holiday weekend. One of my favorite parts of the show is the friendship and sass between David Rose and Stevie Budd, especially the phrase “Best Wishes, Warmest Regards”. I drew this out in Procreate and decided it needed some Roses and flowers to compliment it. I have put this design up in my shops. Enjoy!

Free Spirit

Happy Wednesday! I have made it mid week of my sons first week back to all in school. Let me tell you it has been the best week of my life since March. I’m happy, my boys are happy to be back and it feels great to have an inch of normalcy back. I have been able to get so much done in the past couple of days. I saw a local boutique by me post an image of the words “Free Spirit” and knew I wanted to make a drawing out of it. I have definitely felt like a spirit the past couple of days and finally feel like me again. Free spirit is hand lettered and I drew the flowered background in Procreate. I wanted the flowers to feel Mum inspired since they are every where during the fall. I’m not going to lie, I buy quite a few pots of them every fall. I love them! I just uploaded this to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and cool products.

Fall Pumpkin and Flowers

Hey everyone! The fall weather is in full force this week in Kansas City. And I’m loving it! Here is a drawing that I worked on this past week using Procreate. I discovered a couple of new watercolor brushes and decided to play around with them. To be honest, I haven’t really liked any of the watercolor brushes on the program. I just don’t like the effect that make and doesn’t appear realistic. These new brushes are definitely closer to the effect that I’m wanting to achieve. I was really pleased with the overall look! I will definitely incorporate them into my future drawings. Enjoy!

Hello Autumn

Guess what everyone…..It’s officially Fall! No more wishing it was finally here. I’m ready to eat and drink everything apple and pumpkin related. Plus, I’m anxiously awaiting some cooler temps so I can wear my boots and sweaters. This weekend it will be in the 80’s in KC. Hopefully after this weekend we can finally get rid of these summer temps and just enjoy some cool, crisp weather. I think my new pup Izzy is looking forward to the cooler temps also. She is always hot and likes to lay on our air conditioner vents. So we are looking forward to some fall walks. Here is a piece that I drew digitally in my Procreate app. I wanted to make a silhouette of a leaf to house the phrase “Hello Autumn”. Plus, I included some doodles of fall related items to fill in the voids. I love the end result! Enjoy!

Izzy Pup

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted anything new in the past couple of weeks. We recently had a new addition to our family. We adopted a cute little pup. Her name is Izzy and she is a bordoodle (border collie/poodle mix). She is so cute and fluffy. We love her to pieces! Having a new puppy is just like having a newborn baby in the household. So it has been hard to get anything done and most of my time has been devoted to our new puppy. I did finally get to squeeze some time in while she was napping and create a portrait of her. I drew it digitally using Procreate and tried to capture her fluffy fur with some brushes. I can’t wait to keep creating new content and hopefully getting into routine with Izzy. Welcome to the Ruth Miller Creative family Izzy! Enjoy!

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!

Pink and Green Palm Leaves

Happy Monday everyone! It’s pretty dreary here in KC this morning because of storms. So I’m just going to day dream over here that I’m somewhere tropical all day long. I drew this quick leaf pattern while I had some down time between some freelance and house projects that I’m working on. I have always loved the combination of pink and green together and wanted to use that in a drawing. I got my inspiration from the colors of some amazing tropical plants and just wanted to create sort of a pattern using their leaves. It definitely boosts my view whenever I see them. I just added this to my Society6 and Redbubble shops on prints and products, if you would love to have it for yourself. Enjoy!
