Second Look

On the Bright Side - Flowers of Faith

With the onset of Fall, I sometimes take a second look at a piece of art that I have done and decide to make some changes. 

As you can see, I decided to add a bit more richness and drama to make the flowers pop!
I think it is due to the change of seasons. 
This one could change yet again in the spring!

B is for Beaver with a Blossoming Branch

B is for Beaver with a Blossoming Branch

Here is a new letter B that came to mind while doing a show at the Hale Farm and Village in Bath, Ohio this past weekend. 

B is for beaver holding a blossoming branch, but is that a blue berry bush by him perchance? Butterflies too, please add to the B list.

Hope you enjoy this cute fellow, he is not to be missed!

T is for Two Tulips with Tea

T is for Two Tulips with Tea
I wanted to illustrate some kind of still life with flowers, yet design another illustrated letter. 
So I compromised. 
Beside the obvious T words such as Two Tulips, Tea cup and Teapot, there is Turquoise as well as Tartan.

W is for Wolves

W is for Wolves
As an illustrator who presents work at art festivals, I find listening to comments and feedback are both heart warming and inspirational. Many like my illustrated letters either for themselves, or for their children or grandchildren, or as a gift to someone else. What does become apparent is what's missing in what I offer. While I can not please everyone, the urge to create another variation of a letter is fed by the wonderful people I meet while they view my work. 

In reviewing my offering with the letter W, it became apparent more variation was needed.

W is for Wool

W is for Watering Cans

So while I was up late one night looking at the moon, the wolf inspiration hit. It will be interesting to see how people will respond. Meanwhile it will be back to the drawing board to think up of yet another letter illustration for a series I call Alphabet Soup

V is for Vine and Veranda

V is for Vine and Veranda

I have to admit, although I love the letter V, it is not that easy to come up with ideas for it. The word Vulture just does not do it for me. So as I thought of the wonders of summer and its lazy days on the porch, I came up with V is for Vine as well as Veranda. If you note, there are suggestions of violet and verbena in the color scheme. Okay, I know, I am pushing it.
