Northwest Pacific Coast

I forgot about how much I used to love landscape painting. I love the somber mood of the NW Coast...I was thinking about it and painted this quick watercolor and gouache piece this evening. There was something about the somber rainy days of the Northwest. There was something soothing about it - like a nice dark blanket to create under and be inspired by. The colors, I remember, were vibrant under the dark grey light of the winter.

Bird Brain

I am focusing on drawing what "just comes out" when I draw in the evenings. Somehow a lot of birds came out this week.

Post for Illustration Friday topic "Wilderness"

This is a painting from a few years back, but I thought it would be fitting for "Wilderness"...

evening sketches and doodles

Here are some silly little guys that showed up in my sketchbook. The chocolate chips are for my sister...she is the owner at C. Adam's Bakery - and an awesome sister. We used to make candy together as kids.
