I completed three pieces in March.
“Fly Free” is an ink drawing done on illustration board, using Sakura Micron pens in brown, over a light blue watercolor wash. The eagle, to me, symbolizes freedom, which the words “Fly Free” embody as they waft on the wind of the eagle’s thoughts. Fly free won an award at the March 2019 Animal Kingdom show at Flagler County Art League. Matted and framed. 12×17″. $250
“Swim for It!” is another ink drawing on illustration board, using Sakura Micron pens in black. The undersea rendering was fun but tricky. Originally produced on suggestion of the Pink Turtle Gift Shoppe in Flagler Beach. For sale at the Spring Art and Poetry Show, Flagler County Art League. Matted and framed. 22×18″.
“Traci’s Carousel” is an ink on illustration board drawing of a whimsical carousel horse. My sister loves carousel horses, so I did this one as a birthday present. The original is not for sale, but prints and cards will be available. 10×15″
I currently have a few things on the drawing board.
I’m working on a very small piece of a beach scene, just to see how well this style transitions from size to size.
I’m working on a pair of self-portraits, to test whether or not this style works for people, and to practice realism.
I’m working on a symbolic piece in the realistic style. This piece embodies the personal conundrum of wanting to travel, but being stuck on the computer instead. Something which my illness causes often.
Appearances at The St. Augustine Beach Art Studio and Gallery were canceled for the month of April due to circumstances beyond my control. The April 10 appearance was canceled because of a class that was scheduled on the same day. I was sick for the April 17 appearance, unfortunately. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thanks for your patience!
