You can find me on Etsy...

I have listed my drawings for sale on Etsy. I have been wanting to do this for a long time and today I just went ahead and took the plunge. I won't ever know if people like my art, unless I put it out there for people to purchase. I will see how these go and I guess take things from there. Wish me luck!!

Fall is here...

Our weather has took a turn towards fall. Today is raining and cool and it is supposed to be cool, in the 50s, all week. I hope that it warms up again and we get another taste of summer before it leaves us.

I have been spending a lot of time on my school. I am currently taking Environmental Conversation and it is a lot of reading and writing. I didn't realize how time consuming it was going to be.

I am also working on a colored pencil drawing of my friends parrot, Oliver. Once I complete it, I will post it.

Have a great day!

Beautiful flowers...

Today I went to the McHenry Dam to relax. It was a beautiful day and lots of people were out fishing, boating, and bbq-ing. I just sat down and drew these flowers. I haven't been drawing a lot lately and today was a good day to enjoy it.

Images are back...

I uploaded my images again and now they are appearing. I am not sure why they weren't working, but hopefully they will be fine from now on.

I submitted a drawing today for Blue Moon Brewing Co. art contest. They are having a few different ones, but I submitted for the Chicago show. They select 25-40 pieces to be put in a show at the Museum of Contemporary Art on July 31st.

I am not allowed to publish my drawing, so I can't post it here. I have seen a few other people post theirs on their blogs, but I don't want to take any chances.

This is the first contest I have ever entered. Wish me luck!

Pics in blog...

I am not sure why the pics that I have posted within my blog posts are not showing up. I will have to do a little investigating and get that fixed.

I hope you all have some nice plans made to enjoy the summer. I already took my vacation a couple weeks ago in L.A. It was very nice and I had a great time.

It is a very rainy summer so far. I hope that it gets a little better as time goes on. It would be nice to take off a few days and enjoy the nice hot weather.

My latest drawing is of a lion....I am pretty pleased with it, although I am going to draw it a different way and I will post that when I am through.

Christmas cards...

I have uploaded my 2006 and 2007 Christmas card drawings. I guess I never uploaded a pic from last year, so here are both of them.
