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!

Ready For Fall

Hey everyone! The weather is finally cooling off in Kansas City and it feels amazing. It is so much more enjoyable to be outside. And since we got Izzy, we have been outside a lot more. Fall is my favorite season and I look forward to it every year. I can’t wait to wear sweaters with boots, pick out pumpkins, drink warm apple cider and light fall scented candles. I’m not exaggerating, it truly is my favorite.  I drew this digitally the minute there was just a slight crisp in the air. The font is my own handwriting and I love how it turned out. I’m so ready for fall….is anyone else?

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!

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!

Chill Out Popsicle

Summer is here and pool time with friends has begun. Since the pools around us are limited or closed, it has been nice to have a couple of friends over to swim. Our favorite summer past time is swimming and then having a popsicle on the deck. Popsicles always seem to taste better when it’s hot outside. Yummy! I chose to put the phrase “chill out” on the popsicle, because I feel like I have to say it all the time to my boys. I guess you can say it’s my summer motto….lol! I created and sketched this out using Procreate. This cool piece is now in my Society6 and Redbubble shops. Enjoy!

White Summer Flowers

Hey everyone! Here is a quick little digital drawing that I did while my boys were swimming and having fun. I love flowers and creating patterns with them. You can probably tell that by looking at my portfolio…lol! Even though these flowers came straight from my head and don’t have a real name, I love how they look very summer forward. We have been doing a lot of landscaping this summer in our front and back yard. It’s always so fun and satisfying to see everything grow and bloom. I just uploaded these beauties to my Society6 and Redbubble shops for purchase 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!
