Halloween Pumpkin Bouquet

Hey everyone! I can’t believe Halloween is approaching so quickly. It feels like the October just started. To get into the spirit, I sketched out this cute drawing one morning. I decided to use watercolor to paint it in, since that is my favorite painting medium. I really like the depth of colors it gives yet always gives a unique feel to every painting. Let the countdown begin! 3 weeks until Halloween!

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!

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!

Cute Summer Raccoon

Summer is officially here! The pool is up, the fire pit is set up and the heat is definitely rising. It’s time to kick off the summer right. It will be nice to finally be around family and have some much needed fun. I drew summer raccoon to give some happiness right now. This cute little fella was created digitally with my iPad using Procreate. I love all the background which makes me feel like I’m in a summer field of wild flowers. This cute raccoon is now available on prints and products in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. 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!

Summer Lemons

Hey everyone! Now that home schooling is over with, it officially feels like summer. We were able to sneak away to Wisconsin for Memorial Day weekend for a change of scenery. Even though we didn’t do too much, it was nice to see my in laws and husbands side of the family. With plenty of social distancing, of course! The temperature over the weekend heated up and it was instantly pool weather. It immediately made me think of lemonade, one of my family’s favorite summer drinks. Here is a illustration of some fun summer lemons. I used Procreate to create them digitally with my iPad. I have uploaded this lemon art to my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!
