I made some Easter cards for friends and family this year. Here are the designs:




St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I made this card for my little niece a few weeks ago.


In Progress Painting

I just finished this painting of a Key Lime Tree. I took pictures as I was painting it, so I could show my progress as I went along. I spent about 6-7 hours on this piece.

IMG_7149Made the drawing and filled in the background. Then, for this painting, I painted back into it with white.

Started to fill in the light yellow areas, the lime and a few leaves.

Added more color in the background and filled in more of the leaves.

The finished painting with all details. I filled in more of the background with a light pink for highlights and an iridescent purple.

Other ongoing projects

I've started a new, exciting project in 2018! My friend wrote a children's ABC book on southwest plants and I have begun illustrating it. The picture below is not in the book (this is just something I did recently at my friend's creative craft and art party), but all the illustrations will be made in this style. I have three pages done so far, but I will not be posting it here until the whole thing is done.


Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!
