Still Life Practice!

I’m currently taking a break from portraits and trying out a still life for the first time in months. I’m liking it so far, however I have no idea what time of day the finished product will actually reflect. Here are some progress pictures!

Latest Commission Haul & General Life Update

Hey all! The last couple months I’ve had a great time learning about all the joys that come with moving across the country. We put all of our favorite possessions from Rochester, NY into a u-haul pod, gave it a hug, and hoped really hard that nothing would break before we were reunited in Seattle, WA a month later.

In the meantime, we lived out of suitcases for 4 1/2 weeks while we visited family on the east coast for the holidays. I was extremely grateful to also be landing commissions while I had all this down time. I look forward to being better prepared for the next holiday season so I can help even more people with gifts for their loved ones. Take a look at what I have done for people recently!

Deal With It Greeting Card

I had the idea a little too late (for Valentine’s Day) that I should try to put my basic understanding of pop-up books to use in conjunction with my watercolors. The result was this kitten card, playing off of those always entertaining “deal with it” memes. I still have some kinks to work out, but I hope to someday soon have a whole collection of these listed and ready to sell.

I have a video of the card in action on my Facebook here.
