A cheerful greeting from under the cedars

Just remembering last summer and looking forward to this one.
I planted this little pansy, photographed and drew it, so I look at this as entirely my creation. The cedars were overtaking it and it was hidden beneath them until I clipped some low branches so it could get more sun, and so that everyone could see the cute little treasure that had been hidden from view. So, it had it's little day in the sun until the winter came.

I was looking through a magazine and came accross a picture of a girl who could be the double of a girl I used to know. She was a loyal client of mine for five years when I worked as an esthetician and nail technician. Whatever bills I had at the time, this girl surely helped pay them because she had money and was always at the salon. Thanks again, Morena, wherever you are. :0)

Seeing Spots

The sun is shining and the temperature here is above freezing. It's the first time this year I've had the feeling spring is on it's way!
I felt like uploading this little water color/pencil crayon piece I did a while ago because the colors remind me of spring.

Another commissioned portrait in acrylic paint, approximately 11x14".
Unfortunately the photograph didn't come out clearly and now I don't have the painting to redo the photo.
This was a very rush job. I had to finish it in a week, and then I really only had three days to work on it.

The kids

A 16x20" acrylic painting of my kids just for fun.
