Music Monday - Alex Boye/Let it Go

We are having a protracted heat wave here in the PNW. The biggest problem with day after day of high temps is that so many places are not air conditioned (including our house) so after a few days nothing cools off inside. It's bearable if you can sit in front of a fan non-stop, but golly! Come back cool, drizzly PNW days!

Maybe this will help me feel cooler....?

Sunday Sketching -

In the teensy purse Moleskine balanced upon my knee...

WIP Wednesday -

I've been experimenting the past couple of months with 'decorative realism'. I'm really enjoying the process.
 I'm mixing up rendered flesh and features with flat, graphic elements, and various mediums -

(in these cases, pencil, pastel and metallic paint).

I'm trying to do one or two a week at present. You can follow along more consistently on my instagram account...

Music Monday - Scarborough Fair

Now that it is officially *summer*, the outdoor fairs (art or otherwise) commence in earnest. It always reminds me of this song...

Sunday Sketching - and Happy Solstice

In the teensy purse Moleskine balanced upon my knee....

And today, my studio chickens are a year old! Now that all my baby plants are past infancy, they are free to range in the backyard once again - much to their delight. They follow me around in hopes that I will turn over larger stones or bricks so that they can dispatch any creepy crawlies underneath.

I hope you enjoyed your longest day this year...

Happy Solstice! Happy Summer!

Music Monday - Song of the Sea

I finally got this movie from Netflix and am now rather enamoured with the soundtrack. The movie itself is also lovely. Go watch it!
