Illustration Friday topic is Sky

I thought hmm sky and October. What would work for that? Ah yes a friendly witch flying with her trusty purple bats against a cyan sky. I love doing Halloween images and this one was really fun. I did this painting in oils on board, but recently went into photoshop and added a few touches. Happy Halloween all!

Illustration Friday Topic- Water

For the topic water, I thought I would put up an image that I did inspired from a story from a member of my writer's critique group. The image illustrates one of the dangers in the water for elephant seal pups. I really love the effect that water has on objects. I am also really curious and awed by life in the seas, so this was a joy to paint. It is in oils on board.

Illustration Friday Topic-Mirror

I thought this image would work well for the topic Mirror for this week. This is one of the Two Can Art images that I have been working on. For those who don't know Two Can Art is a collection of work that is a collaboration between my son, Noah who is autistic and myself. Noah paints all of the textures that I then take and create images. I am really loving working with the textures. Our next project is to create papers together. I just built a screen for it, so I am looking forward to what kinds of new textures will come from that. It will be fun to mix them with some of the painted textures.
