A mask project

My daughter and I have spent the past three days making masks using nurse recommended interfacing for filtration. Washable and reusable. Enough for family, then friends and then as many as we can make for everyone else until we run out of supplies. Since this virus will be a new thing we all have to deal with in the long term, let's try to be as safe as possible.

New cards have arrived.

(Click on the image to see them larger.)

My new cards have arrived. I’m working on packaging so they will be available as individual cards and in the future in multi-packs.  I am working on the packaging. They are 5" x 5" - the perfect size for a quick note.  They come with a matching white envelope.  I have the individual cards up in [my shop].  I am still open for business and offer contactless shipping.  Thanks for looking.

"Do you remember when"

"Do You Remember When"

I worked the Census in 2010 and am working it again this year.  It's a short but intense couple of months so there's really not time to paint.  This particular painting was done in maybe 30 minute segments at a time so it feels somewhat disjointed, not the cohesive work I'm used to doing.  But I did manage to get it done.

"Quintessential Summer" - new at the Gallery at the Courthouse

"Quintessential Summer"
Colored pencil on black cotton paper

I was thinking the other day how much I miss working in colored pencil.  One might ask me why not continue to dabble in it.  Well I might on and off but it's such a time intensive medium that I really can't dedicate the time required to complete just one piece which is why I am now working in watercolor.  It's fast, it's equally portable as colored pencil if not more.  Thanks to the dry brush technique I can almost achieve the same effects as colored pencil with just one area that I can't... working on black paper.  Maybe after I finish the flower series I'm currently working on I'll sit down for a good long draw in colored pencils once again.
