Black Seahorse

Here Mr. Mackel, this darker one's for you :)

Sunday, September 28, 2008


I was asked to participate in a local high school's fund raising arts and crafts fair, so I am busy working on some new paintings to sell. I made these four seahorses to be sold individually as prints, and I really like the way they came out. I might make some other colors too, just for fun.

Halloween Kitties

Fall is my favorite time of year so here is a painting I did over the weekend of my two cats, Veronica and Betty having some Halloween fun.

The Bride Part 2

I just finished this illustration for the invitations for my bridal shower. It is pretty girly, but there's nothing more girly than a bridal shower, so it works. It's sort of the bride of frankenstein barbie-version. As always, your comments are very appreciated. My blog is only one week old but I have already gotten some very encouraging comments from people. Thank you everyone who has taken the time to visit my little blog!

Bee Girls

Here is my submission for Illustration Friday's topic, 'clique'. This one was was painted with gouache, and I have included my initial sketch with it. (I think she looks a little cuter in the sketch version.) I hope you enjoy it. Your comments are always appreciated. Thanks for looking!

The Bride

My wedding is coming up at the end of this year and I am designing the invitations for my Halloween-themed bridal shower featuring who else; the Bride of Frankenstein! I made this pastel of the Bride, but I think for the invitations I'm going to do something a little more cartoon-y. I will post the new version after I finish it. Any ideas/ suggestions are very appreciated. Thanks for looking!

witch bath

I just finished this painting about two weeks ago. I was experimenting with oil painting on panel instead of canvas and I realized that it is not for me. It took three times as long to dry and I couldn't control the paint the way I wanted to. I'm not completely happy with this painting, but it was a great learning experience and a fun subject to paint!

first entry

This is my first entry for Illustration Friday and my first blog post!! This is a pastel painting I did a while ago as a background for one of my animations from college. The animation didn't turn out as well as I hoped, but I do like the background paintings I made for it. I hope you enjoy it. Your comments/feedback and very appreciated. Thanks for looking!
