Ophelia and Her Greenies

My dog Ophelia loves loves loves Greenies (in fact she might bite your hand off were you to try to take one from her). It is a little scary. Here is a character drawing that is showing her love of Greenies. It will  be a stamp for a print, eventually.

This girl appeared in my sketchbook tonight. TO me she represents being carried away with inspiration. I love when this happens in life.

More pencil sketches

Some life drawing of my hand (I have been told it is always good to practice hands). And a native american girl. I liked the idea of overlaying graphic plants with a more detailed pencil or painting underneath.
