I've been preparing for a trip to Virginia for a couple days and I haven't had time to draw anything new... (I'm hoping to find some delightful characters seated in the plane around me so that I might have hours of amusing drawing material to work from)... So I thought I'd post this oil painting I did a year and a half ago of my best friend and her grandma's hands. It's one of my favorites.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I saw a kid today at the bookstore with some missing teeth... It made me think back to when losing a tooth equaled more mula than I could accumulate in a month, and I always spent it all on the ice cream man... ah, those were the days. sigh.
This is a mural I did last year (it's so weird that 2005 is now last year). It was floor to ceiling on every wall and commissioned by a wonderful couple who wanted to turn their granddaughters' play/bedroom into an enchanted forest. I had a great time transforming an entire room!
This drawing goes out to the little critter that likes to loiter outside my bedroom window and make annoying sounds at 1 in the morning which freak me out to the point that I actually grab a flashlight and go outside to see "Wha' in tarrrnation could be makin' such a racket?!" Alas, I have never caught the culprit. Someday ... someday.
