LOVE

A colorful happy painting for a soon to be wed cousin.
watercolor and colored pencil on paper 5X7"
I don't believe I heard myself when I said There won't be many more small paintings done due to my summer classes.  Lately that's all I've been doing, and all I want to do.

in the Doldrums

Schools almost over, but that also means schools close to starting again.  I have one more assignment for web design, and maybe a book cover to do but then I'll be good.  I want to finish a few projects before the end of summer and go places but my mood has slowly been sinking.  It finally feels like summer though, up in the 80's, the sunlight is hot and there's a screeching noise that always comes at this time of year. I'm sure I'll be cheering up soon and out of the doldrums.
At least 3 weeks spent in English class learning a book called The Phantom Tollbooth and I will never forget the word DOLDROM EVER! That was literally a nightmare in a book.

Skating poster

My 2nd assignment for my illustration class,
this one is a poster design as a promotion for active older adults for Skate land.
This is the first time I have done this style in such large scale. It was very nerve racking, but I'm very pleased especially with the portrait.
