Turtle Power, Moving House

I really like this sketch. My kids and I were brainstorming stories. This is rough, an idea: “A turtle lost while exploring, finds itself stumbling through a dark, secret tunnel that leads to the Witches planet. The tunnel connects two worlds. Magic is heavy in the air and the turtle starts to change once it emerges into the light. Scared it tries to hide in a carved out hole, burying itself under a craggy hill covered in fog. Suddenly there is an explosion and the turtle is huge. What is left of the hill and the witch’s house are perched atop the turtle’s shell.” What do you think, continue to work on this one?

Heart Break Charlie, Strong Bond of Family

Not too long ago I had a blonde haired blue eyed baby boy. We went to a play group at the local hospital here. We met some wonderful moms and dads… making many friends for life. One of these moms, Sarah, let me be part of a super secret Christmas present for her husband. It was a portrait of their fur baby Charlie, a beautiful lab and so sweet too. I finished the portrait and was ready to ship it to her as they had moved, miss them terribly. I was heart broken and sad to find out Charlie wasn’t doing very well at all. As requested I held on to the portrait for an additional week while the family said their good byes. Thank you for letting me create this portrait for you. Media gray paper and charcoal pencil

I submitted this to Illustration Friday for the category of “Strong”. I believe there are strong bonds of family between friends and fur babies.

Remembering Cole, RIP

My dear friend had to say good bye to her fur baby Cole yesterday. My heart aches for her, he was such a sweet lovable dog. Thankful I was able to create this beautiful portrait.

Moving Pains & the Little Big Project

Recently we moved house… not something I recommend for the faint of heart. I love our new house and I also have my very own room for my studio with a view. Its wonderful. Right before the move I was commissioned for a challenging project. 2 dogs on a 8 x 10, black and white charcoal. It was tricky as the original photograph was low resolution. The portrait was a surprise so I have had to keep this one on the down low until it was revealed. It turned out amazing and I am so thrilled that my customers loved it especially since it was for someone I have known all my life. I will work on posting from beginning to finish so that you can see the process. What do you think of Sugar Babe and Bentley?
