I drew the columbine art I shared last week before I ever met anything in the Aquilegia genus. I picked the reference photo through a Google search simply because the flower had the color combination needed for a sketch challenge. Now, five years later, I'v...

As proven by the reason I'm posting my Flower Friday hop so late today, life is not perfect! Not for humans, anyway - flowers are a different story. I didn't digitally alter this camellia photo I took during my trip to Magnolia Gardens in Charleston at all ...

Manicure Monday: Copenhagen Nail Art by Jamberry Nails
March has come in like a lunatic lion the last few years. Thank goodness there's always the Art of The Belly festival in Ocean City to whirl away the wacky weather off by the end of the month! This year I chose to wear Copenhagen nail wraps from Seasonail ,...

Daffodils may be decorating Delaware right now, but they were already blooming in Charleston when I visited in early February for my birthday. I was delighted by the entrance to Magnolia Gardens. The sign reads, "Give fools their gold and knaves their power...

Colored Pencil Drawing: Fantastic Four Fan Art
I borrowed a sliver of Quicksilver's power and was able to finish my Fantastic Four fan art in time for Revival House's Comically Cinema event last Thursday at Milton Theatre. I hadn't worked on art bigger than ACEO size for ages, so coloring the background...
