Illustration Friday Topic is Rescue

It seemed fitting to put the commissioned piece I did for the Humane Society of the United States up for the topic, rescue.
The organization does so much in many areas affecting the well being of animals. They are a wonderful organization.

Flag Sample for Christmas

I just received a sample of the flag I did that will be in Lowes this year for Christmas. Always fun to get samples.

Illustration Friday topic is Power

There are so many ways to think about the word power. My first thoughts are about the power of nature, especially the sea. Maybe because I've been living near the ocean for several years and have seen what some of those gigantic waves can do. There is also power in the beauty the sea gives us not to mention all of the creatures that live in it's depths. The image here is from the Two Can Art collection of work that I do with my son, Noah's painted textures. Those who know me know that Noah is autistic and that he creates painted textures that are wonderful using a variety of techniques. I take his textures and use them to create images.

Illustration Friday Topic is Fresh

I went through a phase of painting vegetables and did this image of red peppers in oils. After starting to do images using Noah's painted textures I did a different version of the red peppers using his textures. I really love exploring different ways of creating. Who knows what the next red peppers will look like.
