Spring show


 The. Vermont Watercolor Society has a group show that is currently exhibited at the Gallery at River Arts in Morrisville. I have two floral pieces on display...maybe take a ride through the springtime Vermont countryside and watch the tender greens take hold.

Illustrated technology


 I’m learning how to incorporate my watercolors and digital work together...I painted this hen with her colorful eggs several years ago..but decided to make it into an illustrated recipe for the “They Draw and Cook” website...the white eggs were added in procreate, as was the background to blend with the foreground. Then the text was also added digitally... click this LINK to check out my other illustrated recipes. Happy Easter to those who celebrate 🐣

Digital poppies


Is it spring, yet? Well...not here in Vermont...but today it is above 40 degrees! I’ve been exploring my iPad and digital painting a bit more and having fun trying out all the “brushes “ & “textures” that come with the procreate app. Just like learning how to manipulate oils, watercolors or any other media this digital painting is in a category all its own!

New Year, new medium

 


Well...it’s been a while since I’ve posted and showed you any art...shame on me! It’s not that I haven’t been creating...it’s just that the blogging has slipped out of focus, since I post more on Instagram...but I really do appreciate all who continue to follow me right here on my blog! I hope this finds you well and weathering our uncertain and tumultuous world. I’ve relied on comfort foods and soul soothing tea-time and learning procreate on the iPad. Digital media is a whole new world...these illustrations were done that way. I’m certainly not abandoning traditional media, but I am enjoying this new way of being creative.
