Hello Blogland! Yes, you read that (not-so clever) title correctly: I have completed one of the pieces of the dozen or so I need for my spring art show already! You may not be in shock, but I am since normally my pieces take at least two weeks (usually closer to three) from start to … Continue reading A Project Completed Already!
It seems like it's been ages since I've shared a new piece of colored pencil art with the blogosphere. It's not that I haven't been busily wearing down my pencils, it's just that other news keeps taking precedence over my little scribbles. But Popeye the Tree Frog is simply begging (in his croaky froggy voice) … Continue reading Hop on Over and Meet Popeye
Or should I say, "All's County Fair in Art and War?" Yep, it's time again for the Clackamas County Fair, and although I could have entered the Weird Vegetable competition with my cucumber that recently grew into my door frame, I've decided to leave the odd produce to the farmers and stick with the art … Continue reading All’s Fair in Art and War
No, don't check your calendar; it is indeed Saturday. Seems yesterday managed to slip by without me tossing out a F(ine) Art Friday post to the world. And yet the globe continues to spin...amazing.

This week my art time has been spent away from my colored pencils and has instead been devoted to prepping my work for my upcoming solo exhibition (which starts next week....Squeeee!). That prep work has meant suffering the tedium of framing my artwork. Ugh. You'd think with the amount of detail throw into my drawings/paintings … Continue reading I’ve Been Framed!

But since I'm only rubbing shoulders with my cats and guinea pigs rather than stylish celebrities, I suppose it's okay that I do this post in my shorts and sweater. … Continue reading And the Winners Are…
Well, I had hoped to have two new pieces of art to show off today; unfortunately, sometimes the colored pencil gods don't cooperate. But let's not dwell on the negative because it's time to meet Borris! Who's Borris? Borris is an Amur Leopard who spends his days lounging at the Oregon Zoo. He's quite a … Continue reading Meet Borris (New Colored Pencil Art)
Yay! I've added another piece of art to the candidates for inclusion in my upcoming art show. The date for when I have to have everything ready is drawing (haha) close, but it looks like I may squeak everything in by the deadline. But enough introduction. Let's get to this new bit of colored pencil art. … Continue reading New Bit of Colored Pencil Art: Gazing Ball
