New job, new goals, new schedule.

Bleeding hearts are my favorite flower. How can they be so amazingly shaped?

This is traditional drawing in markers and colors pencils, which is fun to do on the breaks from my new job. I give myself job ‘projects’, to color, or draw, or shade something while I am there. It’s a good way to stay in practice, and fit some art into my day.

Lana, I don’t care about your Las Vegas past. I just want to sit and stare at your beautiful half-sneering lips all day.

It’s spring, and I’ll draw all the flowers and ladies I want, and no one can stop me. Here, have a sketch in progress.

Lillies and ladies!

Excuse the crappy phone photo. Going for maximum fluffiness here.

More owls! The Eastern Screech Owl and the Northern Pygmy owl. Basically one is a puff ball of surprise, and the other is a puff ball of anger.

A spring resolution: update more. I’m doing work every day, why not show it almost as often?

Relaxing is painting wise blue bears. Is the photo blurry because I want it to be mysterious, or because my phone camera is terrible? We might never know.

Here are some sketches I digitally fiddled with. I think I might paint a couple of them, but I always like how pencils scan. Something about that texture.

Ever have one of those paintings you just can’t seem to finish? Every time I go back to this, I come back with a fresh set of eyes, and it does benefit. But the problem with me and digital is that I will spend forever going over something until I have it where I want it. It’s all too easy when you can just start another layer and jump right back in.
