Day 8# Rainbow

I love the rainbow and was thinking how I can interpret it here.

Oh the color…


I love this idea of using gradients to express emotion.

Then of course I had to draw a rainbow. I had this idea that simply emerged. It is a fun way to  involve the reader with guessing part of the message. I feel I have to explore it.


I love this idea and will definitely keep working on it.  I remember this sweet student who looked up at the sky and saw a pretty rainbow after it had rained. At that moment all the cares just faded away.   I did see the wonderful rainbow.

wSee you soon!

Day #7 Bee

Just a playful way to remind ourselves to be good. She is also a character I am working on bringing to life in a picture book.  I do love bees and thinking they are much like is in a sense…they seem small but boy do they have a big job!0318161159a[1]

I used crayons and markets.

Seem you tomorrow!

Hippity Hoppity Easter!

I want to celebrate by making cards and just having fun with color. 0325161115

I am not sure about these eggs but I love the idea. I need to rethink the color. I am thinking teal, and yellow.



These letters that I tried to cut from paper just didn’t work but I had fun.

Day 5 # Flowers

I love nature and flowers!

I created this some time ago in illustrator.I had to paint it. I love the painted version much better.

Its my interpretation of the love I feel for  people, and nature. I really believe that I am like everyone else but I’m me and there’s no one like me…

Day #4 Beauty

Sorry about the picture quality here. I am working on it every time I post. LOL  

I painted this with watercolor pencils.  I am going to be playing around with several tools throughout this challenge.

I like the poems that replace images with words and the whole nature theme here…

#3 Peter Pan – Adventure

I am working on an alphabet that I can use to then create many adventurous words like courage, dream, live, be do, and purpose…

Here is the second of who knows how many iterations.


Just let your mind wonder and go with whatever comes to mind.

Tomorrow you see this in practice.
