Took a little slice of today to finish this painting on my Twitch.tv stream.

Itโ€™ll be framed and up on the wall for next weeks Third Friday ArtWalk at my studio along with some new prints!

I have been working on this print for a few months - the poem was written by my dear friend Karyn Wolfe Lynn who passed away on March 8. I chose blue lupines as I see them as a symbol of Marina, they grow plentiful and wild here.

Come see me next weekend, May 5 + 6, from 11am-5pm over at 1460 Ord Grove Avenue in Seaside, CA, for the Seaside Artist's Association Studio Tour!

Catching up on these posts! Here is my spread of days 15 + 16 for #thesketchbookproject and #3030atyac. I used my #pentel pocket brush pen and Bee paper.

Though not technically one of my 30/30 drawings, I wanted to share this lil peach illustration I did recently. I actually cropped and framed it differently, so the original no longer has all the watercolor on the side, so I am glad that I scanned it a bit earlier than the finished frame.

I want to do more simple food drawings!

For day 3 of #3030atyac I drew my good friend @caspercallawaytattoo and honestly it's the best drawing I've done in a long time. I used a red Col-Erase pencil, graphite, and an orange Tombow marker.

For day 4, I drew my kitty Osiris. Doing my favorite thing he does, sticking his tongue out at me. For this drawing I used a mix of colored pencils and a micron pen.

Once again, it is time for the biannual 30 days, 30 drawings challenge.

I am excited because this time, I am using a sketchbook from the #sketchbookproject and once I fill it up, off it goes to the Brooklyn Art Library's permanent collection!

Here is Day 1 & 2. I thought it was going to be important to include intentions and words with this run.

How amazing are these monotypes?? I love doing workshops at @youthartscollective ๐Ÿ’œ

So excited to have these amazing samples of monotypes from Michelle, Emma, and Salvador for todayโ€™s TAG (teaching across generations) workshop!

Maybe I need to do a monotype workshop for just YACsters too?

Excited to get deeper into digital sketching and painting. This was made with my HP Spectre laptop & Photoshop CC 2018. When you live in Monterey county and your art studio is about a block away from the Aquarium it's inevitable to want to paint jellyfish... I think about jellyfish a lot because of climate change. In the coming years as the ocean becomes more acidic and many species die off from overfishing, heating oceans, pollution, and other factors, jellyfish (and other cnidarians) that are well suited to a warmer, more acidic ocean will thrive.

#inktober day 2! This is a mix of tombow markers, india ink, sakura micron pens, and p.h. martin's copper ink.

I call it "Rolling Off" because to me it has a water-like movement, and conceptually I was thinking of what sticks and what doesn't. But you are welcome to interpret whatever you see for yourself.

Believe it or not, jewelry was one of my worst subjects in my art major ๐Ÿ’€. Mostly a painter & printmaker, I couldn't wrap my head around designing in 3 dimensions, and my pieces came out flat. Shouldn't be shocking that my worst subject was sculpture. ๐Ÿ˜…
But, after graduating and spending so much time with paint and woodcuts, I needed something different. I had seen mold-making and resin pouring before, and after working at @sucresucreminiatures and seeing so many wonderful examples of creative design in the form of small charms and jewelry, I was inspired. On top of that, I had been in a huge rut with my paintings! (still am!!)๐Ÿ˜ฐ
Over the course of a few paychecks I slowly assembled all the materials I would need to test my hand at this new medium. It's been maybe 6 months since my first attempt, and finally I have an end result I am proud of and ready to share with the world!

I love making my resin bee earrings. The mold-making process, pouring, making color choices, assembling, and packaging! I must say, designing the packaging for these was a lot of fun. When my customers receive their product, I want it to feel like unwrapping a special present. That's why I put a special personal touch into every shipment.

Finished up the sketch I started at last week's Open Studio Tour. I used #beepaper my favorite Super Deluxe sketchbook -- seriously, I have bought & filled up 2-3 a year of these in varying sizes since 2011... Also used copic markers, tombow markers, india ink, and a water brush.
Let's call this days 23-26 on the 30/30 challenge.

Day 3! Just a 5 minute sketch today -- had a busy tired day.  This heat wave really got me, I also didn't sleep til after 2 last night. Slept in a bit and then did some chores around the house, followed by work at @sucresucreminiatures and then dinner with family. 
This is from a photo I took of our farms zinnia flowers!

"Summer Pineapple"

This piece is just a bit of fun. I love the taste of fresh pineapple in the summertime. I also think it's interesting that this fruit is a fashion/decorating trend at the moment. This piece is 9x12" on Arches Hot Press watercolor paper, I used watercolor pencils, Sennelier watercolor paints, Nova Neon pink acrylic paint, and a touch of copper ink.

Also available as a print on my Etsy store at the following link: http://ow.ly/W2qY30digyw .

Also coming soon to Etsy, flower crystal magnets & pendants! Here is a sneak peek of my prototype magnet. I'll be honest, I have to keep this one because I just love it too much. 
Made with resin & wildflowers I picked in Fort Ord then dried, and I handmade the mold out of a quartz crystal that some sweet hippies gave me a long time ago.

I have added a new kind of product to my Etsy -- Planner Clips! These are great if you use a bullet journal system, planner, or as an alternative to post-it notes to organize and keep track of your school notebooks, etc. They are made from punched circles of my original watercolor works -- usually my "reject" paintings that I wanted to give new life to. They are mounted on sturdy jumbo sized Rose Gold paperclips.
Why use the same yellow post-it notes when you could have a little piece of artwork keeping your place?

Use this link to see my planner clips!

Making earrings and magnets outta these little guys! I love working with resin, but waiting for it to cure definitely tests my patience as an artist.
The process reminds me of printmaking; once the first good mold is made I can repeat it as much as I want! However that never means that two pieces will look exactly the same. I am still experimenting and learning! .

New lil watercolor - first in a series of summer succulents! This plant was given to me as a tiny cutting by my friend Alex. Two years(ish) later and it is thriving and so, so colorul! From delicate minty blues to lavenders and purples and bright pinks, it is the queen of my modest garden.
I am using this illustration to make some small products that will be on my Etsy soon so keep watching!

New design! I have a lot of floppy disk & old tech centered ideas that I want to explore... starting out with some light & fun illustrations before I delve into it more.
I used pen & ink, watercolors, and then applied text digitally.

I want to bring a little attention to my Justice Art display at my Art walk display!
Each piece specifically references a justice change I want to see in the world & all proceeds from these sales go directly to causes outlined in my artist statement.

Another sketch from Live Art! 10 minutes on this one. I chose an angle that gave me a lot of profiles and 3/4 from behind views of the people posing. It can be hard to achieve a likeness from that angle!

When your first try at resin cast bees comes out bubbly, just paint it rose gold. Rose gold solves everything right?

The lovely @gunterjenn sat for our Sketch Circle at Live Art and I did this 5 minute ink drawing with a touch of watercolor for her! Definitely one of my favorites of the night. I will be posting more & a blog account of the night soon :)
