Illustration Friday Topic-Obsession

I think most people have a soft spot for incredibly delicious chocolate. I got a real love of it after biking through Holland and Germany years ago. There were some incredibly good chocolates there. It was great that I was biking. I could eat it and then ride it off. The great thing about doing this painting is that I got to eat the reference! It's oils on canvas.

Illustration Friday Topic-Gesture

This is an image I did for a story that I wrote. The muse for the characters was my grandmother and her sisters. When they would get together, they would laugh and tell stories about things they remembered as children. It was always fun to listen in. I loved painting this and had a lot of fun making the shapes in the clouds and hair. ( a little self indulgent) This was the first image that came to mind for the topic,gesture as they did as much talking with their hands as the did verbally.

Illustration Friday Topic- Stay

I did this image for the International Humane Society. These are creatures we want to STAY on this earth.

The Humane Society brings attention of their plight to light. The image was made into cards. It is done in oils on board.

Illustration Friday Topic- Remedy

I had several ideas for remedy, but thought I'd limit it to these two images. I think going to the beach on a warm summer day can be a remedy for anything that ails you, and if that doesn't work a nice cold pink cocktail!
These are both images from the Two Can Art collection. (see post below)
