A Very Fine House

From idea to image, A Very Fine House8" x 10" Graphite, colored pencil, ink.

I woke up with this scene in my head on Sunday and immediately began drafting it out and working on a color scheme in my studio.  Between the end of the semester and framing art for the previous month's exhibits, it's been a few weeks since I've made a drawing in my studio.  It's time to order more paper and colored pencils.  I found some neon pink and yellow Prismacolor listed online, much to my delight!  

Inspired by the month's upcoming weddings
this mixed media drawing is the newest listing in my Etsy shop.  I want to live in that house.

Birds of a Feather, 8" x 10"

The hanging stars remind me a bit of 

A Trip to the Moon.  


The much anticipated arrival of May...

May is here...the spring semester has absolutely flown by!  Earlier this week I gave the last of the final exams to my art history class and submitted grades to the college.  Now it is summer vacation, and there is so much to look forward to!  Two very special weddings of friends are coming up and love is definitely in the air.  Then I'll be packing up the house & studio to move to Texas by the end of June.  

I have uploaded a handful of 'sweet-tweet' drawings to my Etsy shop, Loose Tooth Studio.  They are petite (4 1/2" x 6 1/2") mixed media drawings on paper, sized perfectly to be matted in an 8"x10" frame!  For the entire month of May I am offering free shipping with the coupon code 'MAYFREE.'  be sure to take advantage of the savings, right in time for Mother's Day & graduations!  

This drawingbe there soon, is my favorite of the sweet-tweets.  Hopeful, dreamy and adventurous....exactly how I feel right now!
