Creativity is a weird thing. Like lots of artists I go through phases of pure, amazing, "omg everything is the greatest” bouts of inspiration. Then there’s several weeks or months of nothing. Where the last thing I want to do is draw, paint, whatever. .
.
.
Typically the day to day things become the focus and you suddenly realize it’s been a minute since you’ve looked at your sketchbook. .
.
.
So in an effort to draw literally anything, I defaulted to these dogs and cats. Enjoy! 🐕 🐱 🐶 🐈 .

Saturday! Made it through the week! Playing with the autodesk sketchbook app. Of course Ralph the Puggle is my source of inspiration. @pugglesaurus_ralph 🐕 .

We are headed to the Sequoias next weekend and I’m curious what digitally painting the huge trees will be like. But in the meantime, it’s Ralph portrait time. 🌲 .

“THANKSGIVING” - Open edition linocut
.
.
Inspired by a passage in the great book, "Rules of Civility," a woman alone on Thanksgiving in 1930s Manhattan makes the best of life by drinking whiskey while cutting her holiday ham. 🐖 🥃 .
.
.
My mom bought me this book (I think the last paperback I read was about 3 years ago—on the kindle these days) for my birthday, right before a vacation to the lovely Kauai.
.
.
It's the kind of book you devour in just a few days. Everything about it made me laugh, feel a bit sentimental and wonder what being a single woman in NY during the 30s would be like. Katey Kontent, the protagonist is really the best ever.
.
.
I finished the book and left it in the apartment we were staying in, hoping someone might enjoy it as much as I did in the future. We'll see what happens. Most readers already have an arsenal of books ready for vacation so I won't ever really know.
.
.
If I still had the book, I'd write the passage here, but I don't. All I recall is it was something along the lines of Katey saying she wasn't a big whiskey drinker, but she had a ham and figured it'd taste good with it, so she bought a bottle to drink straight while she cut her ham. And from what I remember it was indeed Thanksgiving.
.
.
Everything about it made me chuckle and put a great visual in my head so here we are.
.
.
If you get the chance, I highly recommend: "Rules of Civility" by Amor Towles. @amortowles .

Print available on etsy...link in bio!

HAPPY MONDAY! Happy Memorial Day! 🇺🇸 .

To get you week started, here’s a commission I did for a portrait of the lovely Scully. Of all the pieces I do, something about painting dogs is a favorite.
.
Watercolor and pen and ink on paper - 9 x 12” .

Things that happened in Hawaii. 🌞 🦎 🐦 🐈 🏖 .
.
While on vacation in Hawaii, there was a lot of food, sleep, beach and reading. But perhaps one of my favorite parts was the animals. I was equally parts curious about the different types of animals I saw and their respective personalities.
.

The most interesting thing I learned was that geckos are not afraid to chill on your patio and wait for your clumsy self to drop food. I can totally relate.
.
More detail in my story 😃

Blossoms! 🌸 🌸 🌸 .
.
My sister has one of these prints, and my mom — these 3. They will live proudly above her couch. I liked the idea of using three colors (watercolor wash), all intertwining with each other but was trying to be careful to not go too primary.
.
.
Anywho, very proud of these pieces. Can't wait to see them hanging!

Me and Ralph because...why not? I had no idea what to paint but wanted to do something so because Ralph is my default subject, this happened.
.
I recently made a trip to Aaron Brothers since they are going out of business (I recently learned — RIP) and nabbed a yellow ochre which is always the first color to go.
.
Started with a green wash to see how it would come through and here you have it...me and @pugglesaurus_ralph !

Just finished the lovely book "Little Fires Everywhere" by Celeste Ng. It kept popping up on all the must read books so I jumped in and am very glad I did. 🔥 🏡 .
.

It's especially nostalgic if you grew up in the suburbs in the late 90s. Lots of good throwback references to pagers, the Clinton / Lewinsky scandal and the intensity of being a teenager in general.
.

When I finished, I had this image in my head. In short, highly recommend! Definitely sticks with you. Also, can we walk about the best Jonathan Adler kindle case ever?
