Sketch Sunday 1

I am going to try to post a sketch every Sunday, just to keep myself on track. I sketch or paint almost every day, but find posting to be challenging. So here it goes. Week 1 Sketch Sunday.  A wicked looking flower in a cutesy pot with a chubby little bee buzzing around. 🙂 

 

 

Happy Sunday! It is a beautiful day here in Western MA. I hope it is nice where you are too. Get out and enjoy! LE

I was invited to put a piece of my artwork in the UMass Amherst Staff initiative, Building Bridges Worker Exhibition. It was the first time I had an original painting in an official exhibition. I also exhibited five digital images:

I was very happy to see such a large amount of interest in the exhibition. I received a lot of positive feedback about my art, and more importantly, about the exhibition and Building Bridges.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time out of their day to come see my art and to those family and friends who helped me choose the pieces – you know who you are! 😀

Blizzard 2018

We were hit pretty hard on the East Coast by a big storm last week. I drew and painted this little character. I entitled it “Feeling penguin in a Nor’easter!”

Stay warm!
