I’ve been to Greece since my last update and as usual, I had a wonderful time. Inspiration is a tricky thing. This year, as opposed to last, I didn’t feel inspired to draw for myself. Instead, I spent a lot of time making chalkboard signs for a restaurant in exchange for delicious all-I-could-eat food and drink. I touched up signs I’d made last year which had been ruined by the scorching Cretan sun and rains carrying dust from the Sahara. And made many new signs too.

I recently discovered that the town I live in has an annual Butterfly Festival. This gave me great inspiration and I quickly got to work drawing. Mariposa, California (the name means butterfly in Spanish) is not only famous for it’s butterflies but also as the gateway to Yosemite National Park. This gave me lots of imagery to call upon. In my first drawing, I incorporated Yosemite’s iconic Half Dome into the picture. Here’s a video of the drawing process and the finished image which I have turned into a poster.

My boyfriend Bear, aka “The Double Rainbow Guy”, was nice enough to help me make a video slideshow. I’m looking forward to using more video in the future, especially to capture drawings being created from start to finish using time-lapse.
After months of data entry and hair-pulling, I am so pleased to invite you to my new art store featuring original pastel art and prints for sale.
With this administrative work out of the way, I am eager to get back to drawing in my latest locale: Yosemite National Park in California.
I so appreciate your support.
