Return from Seasonal Hiatus

I don’t know exactly why, but there seems to be certain times of the year when I take a break from blogging. Especially in February – I think it has something to do with enduring the long winter months. I have been staying creative this time though. I’ve been focusing on watercolor lately and have painted a few pieces I’m really happy with. This Bird of Paradise is my favorite!

Even though I haven’t been posting, I’ve still been getting likes on my older work. Thank you all for sticking around! I really appreciate it. <3

50s Vintage Dress

It took me a few days to get up the courage to ink this. The watercolor turned out so nice I was afraid to ruin it. It turned out OK, but it lost the loose feel the watercolor had alone. I guess my next step is to figure out how to ink loosely.

Postcard: Giraffe at Sunset

I finally sat down and worked on a postcard tonight. I have some other things going on that are taking priority right now, but I’ve been brainstorming ideas and collecting more addresses. I haven’t worked with watercolors for a while so it was fun to revisit.

R/SketchDaily 126/127: Something More People Should Like

I think more people should like coffee. I know, I know, millions of people already do, but I need one more person to like coffee. Specifically, I need my husband to like coffee, because he hates it and it makes me sad. He can’t even stand the smell of it, which really sucks for him because I make a delicious, aromatic pot every morning. It would be nice if he liked coffee because then we could have one more thing in common and be all TEAM COFFEE and drink interesting coffees and buy fun coffee things. And most importantly, I could upgrade from my tiny 4 cup machine, to a proper 12 cupper. But alas, he likes tea.

Here’s a glorious cup, painted using – you guessed it – coffee!
