Kayla -Rescued Dog

February 22, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

This is Kayla. She's a rescued dog by CAWS.org.

I had her at a park with a fellow CAWS photographer. It was a really chilly morning but she didn't seem to notice. We got a lot of really cute photographs of her. I love the one I used to draw this illustration especially because of the way she's got her mouth. It's a howl look, although there was no howl.

She also looks like she's got a donut in her mouth, it's just her adorable chin though.

I think I'll put this on a t-shirt. If I do, I'll share the results.

P.S. No French words this time. My computer is being weird and it won't let me highlight the French words to make them italics. Once I get that issue solved, back to the French.


Illustration of a Lady

February 08, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Hello -Bonjour!

I love BIG hair! Maybe it's because I have small hair, ha:)

I love the rain -pluie, as well as the nighttime sky full of stars -étoiles, so this gal got both.

I drew her face from a photo on www.Pexels.com. Artist's name: Adina Voicu. 

I added the red in her hair to show her fiery side. She's nice, but don't push it! (Am I talking about myself? Not that I wouldn't love to be her, but I'm more of a rug trying to be fiery) I always wanted to be an art therapist. Art is a great way to say what maybe we can't say with our mouths. Maybe I'll throw her on a back female cut t-shirt and wear her attitude, lol:)

French words displayed as writing practice. My daughter and I are learning how to speak it so when we head back to Scotland someday we will be able to speak French when we visit France, which is a hop, skip and a jump away from Scotland.


My Dog Trinity -Illustration

Bonjour!

Who is absolutely in LOVE -amour- with their dog -chien-, and their dog's face? I mean like a crazy, puppy dog love, excuse the pun. I love Trinity's eyes. I can stare into them for ever! They are so beautiful -beau-! I love her neck and the thick, almost chubby quality to it. I love her paws! I understand the term: Furkid!

Here she is!

The Red Lady -Illustration

January 29, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Welcome -Bonjour!

When I sit down to draw I have no idea what will end up being made. I know a lot of artists have plans on what's going to be on the paper at completion. I think I'm just too hyper to pull that off.

Ah well, a surprise is always nice:)

So here is La Dame Rouge - The Red Lady.

Daisy Illustration

Hello, Boujour!

We've got a daisy illustration this time! Gotta love those simple shapes that burst into something so loved,
aimé, and adored, adoré .

It's a balmy 37° in The Great Salt Lake Valley today, ha ha! I'll have to get my heeler, Trinity out for a walk. 
She's going hyper this winter, hiver! She hates the cold and refuses to leave the end of the driveway when it's too cold.
Maybe today we can get her farther.
