“Shades of Blue” work-in-progress

I haven’t been painting much with summer break, family activities and my 20 year high school reunion ( how did that happen?).  I have some new works in rotation and possible news to announce.  Happy Hump Day!

“Sorrow”…

I created this latest painting on a whim this week while finishing another piece with the theme, “Frustration.” Since I was in the ‘zone’ and delving into emotions using visual communication, I decided to do “Sorrow.”
Speaking of sorrow; if this sinus infection doesn’t go away soon I will fall into the pit of despair…

A Promise…

The journey…

The journey...

…is exhausting at times. Waiting for a reply. Waiting for validation. Waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak. While I wait for a an answer from a faceless art director, life and Universe; I can only feel a bit isolated in my own feelings of: fear, anxiety, elation, hope and anticipation. As an unknown artist, sometimes, the waiting (to be ‘seen’) is the worst part of the struggle. You put your heart and soul on a piece of paper and put it out into the cosmos…waiting. Drowning in your own thoughts…while struggling to keep hope alive. On that note, I will post an updated progress of my “Mother Goose” to cheer myself-up. Having one of ‘those’ days.

“Mother Goose” (work-in-progress)

Just a quick picture of one of my current illustrations I am working-on. Happy Friday!

Eternal Love…

Eternal Love...

I still have more work to do on this piece (shadows/depth/tweaks here and there), and hope to have it wrapped-up by the end of the day so I can get to my printing bloke to make prints in time for Mother’s Day cards. (Yes, I broke my own rules and painted larger than 8×10 inches). Wishing everyone a happy Friday!

Springing forward…

I forgot to post a quick picture of one of my latest paintings/illustrations for my children’s book.  I have yet to name it, so I will wait to post the final scan with the poem.  I really wish I had a bigger scanner (it is a bit challenging to work smaller than 8×10).  First World Problems…
