Little one

Graphite: 2B. 6B; 2.5" x 3.5"

I am SO SO SO lucky to live in an artist/biologist community! Our annual Volcano Art Sale is on this weekend and various artists have opened their homes and studios for us to view and buy amazing artwork ranging from fine art to ceramics, carvings, jewelry, etc. I was so inspired I decided to pick up my pencil this afternoon and got creative myself. :) This is a drawing of my friend's son, when he was a bit younger. It's one of my favorite pics of him.

watercolor, 7.5"x8.5"

I took a picture of some freshly picked onions during a trip to New Mexico while on our mainland trip for the Agricultural Leadership Program and have always meant to paint it. It took a few years but I'm glad to have finally done it. I haven't been painting or drawing much lately because work has gotten so busy, filling my weekends, but this reminded me that we need to make time for the things that make us happy ... and centered too.

Artcard, 2.5" x 3.5", watercolor and Pigma micron .005 pen

I have a feeling I will be drawing Marmalade a lot. He's my only subject that lies still for me. :)

JKPP: Mark B.

Transparent watercolor, ~7"x 10" ($50 USD)

Watercolor of Mark B. over at Julia Kay's Portrait Party on Flickr. It's a slightly bigger format than the other JKPP portraits I've been doing lately but it was a lot of fun using bigger brushes. It's good to switch it up once in awhile, no?
