It's all by design

When people comment I don't draw from my imagination I'm not at all offended. They probably don't realize I consider it a compliment. Going to college I started out in commercial art so I could make a living doing what I loved. Commercial art later grew to be known as graphic design. When I graduated with my BA degree, my emphasis was in illustration. So when you see my drawings and paintings - that realism is entirely on purpose.

You could even say it was by design.

Starbucks in St Helens.

With all the traveling I've had to do this past week, I didn't have a pre-planned location set up. I normally avoid chain types stores because they all tend to be cookie cutter sameness. With a lack of a better option the gals wanted to go there for a cup of coffee so off we went and I made the best of it. Watercolor in my journal.
