Artist in Residence

Created a few more illustrations for our local park resident association at Fortune Green. 
Daffodils are in full bloom and some sun is starting to shine during the days that start earlier.  
Residents can purchase the originals by contacting me through the blog and get free delivery!

Artist's tools and large scale

After a throughout organization if the studio this week-end, needed due to a teenage sleepover invasion...I found a large canvas with a picture I did not like.  after briefly considering throwing it away, I bought some gesso at the nearby Cassart and resurfaced the canvas to try my hand at acrylics.   This is the start.  I am trying to use the paint to get the runny watery effect of watercolor but on a large scale (this must be about 1x1 meter).    They are my actual brushes and most used tools.  Next step is to add a few more tools and splotches and some watery background. Liking it so far 😃.
