Tennessee Revisited

Here are a few more pictures from my visit home to East Tennessee over Thanksgiving. I can't deny that I think it's one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Something different.

So here is my latest illustration. This is acrylic on a textured board, using the Fletcher color system (a technique which involves selecting a "soloist" color from the color wheel, which makes up 10% of the painting and is accompanied by two "chorus" colors and a number of corresponding colors. While I like textured surfaces and acrylic paint, I normally don't work with either of the two (at least, I haven't in quite some time). Still, I'm pleased with this one. Prints are available in my Etsy shop!

My husband and I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button today, and it was absolutely the most beautiful film I've seen in years. Do check it out.

New Illustration!

Here's my latest illustration, "The Grand Pumpkin Pie." I typically work in watercolor and ink, but I'm employing digital techniques more and more frequently. This piece was somewhat of an experiment (and an assignment), and I'm really pleased with the outcome. Expect more pieces done in this method! Prints are available in my Etsy shop!

New items...

Over the past few days I updated the shop a little, adding a new print, new sketchbook, and a set of originals. Have a look! I'll be adding more newness over the course of the next couple of weeks. I'm hoping to have fifty items in the shop by mid-February.
