Twisted (for the) Sisters
Watercolor on chipboard

I picked this carrot out at the farm share because I thought my four year old would get a kick out of it. Little did I realize what a pain it would be to clean and peel to actually eat, so it's been in the fridge for a while. But it's a great subject matter. 

I had so much fun working on this. I have been listening to my music on shuffle and have been reminded that one of my greatest passions is listening to great music and making art. I started this piece while listening to an old high school friend's music: The B Flat Project. Listening to Brian sing was so inspiring and it was great to "rediscover" his work as it appeared in my playlist. 

I had to stop this one because I am overtired and overworking it and it was getting muddy, but I was just enjoying it so much. I can't wait to see where my art takes me.

I Just Ate My Subject (Blackberry)
Pen on paper

I'm tired. It's late. I spent all evening working on decluttering the studio so I can work now that it's heated. I literally spent twelve minutes on this. But I had some me time and got to rock out to Parents Just Don't Understand. And I realized that blackberries are really hard to draw. I couldn't remember which druplets (yes, that's what those little parts are called -- I looked it up!) I had drawn and it was a lot of confusion. I was admittedly kind of glad when I could abandon this drawing after ten minutes or so.

Not loving it. Distracted today -- have a big freelance project I need to focus on instead. But I did it! Do I have to share if I don't like it?

I might go back to the root veggies for the time being. But the pressure is on!

The Turnip I Thought Was a Radish (For Cos)

This is for you Cos. I was inspired by the Christmas tree you did on brown paper. Thank you.
