Hello dear readers,
My, my, it’s been a great long while since I’ve made a post here! It has been a busy, productive, and creative time for me. I’ve been keeping up my new website, have started an Instagram account, have been completing several commissions, and somewhere in the background, have been working on creative writing.
But I would like to take a moment now to catch you up on some of my latest creative projects.
The Christmas Drawing.
As always, we made our annual Christmas card with a new drawing of mine. We then went about making a card to fit the drawing. That’s always great fun! The original drawing is 10 x 10 inches drawn with Sakura Pigma Micron pens. We did something whimsical this time, which was a lovely change of pace.
The finished card:
I’ve also been working on commissions. Below, you’ll see a pair of 12 x 12 inch sheep drawings that I recently completed. They were drawn in ink (brush tip gray tones for the soft areas and Sakura Pigmas for the details) with white charcoal for the wool and highlights. They were really fun for a change.
I’ve also been working on a commission of a Great Dane portrait. I love Great Danes – I hope one day to have one of my own. This was such a fun portrait! Her name was Lila, and sadly, she had passed away. It was an honor to get to draw her. This is 8×10 inches in my usual pen and ink.
And, most recently, I was commissioned to create a Charging Bull wire sculpture. Did I ever have fun making this guy! I so enjoyed creating the sense of action in this piece. It is made with dark annealed wire of gauges 16, 18, 19, 22, and 28. The horns are embellishments I found in an art store. This is a big fellow, measuring 12 inches long by 6 inches tall by 4 1/2 inches wide. He weighs over 6 1/2 pounds. What fun to make this piece!
There are probably other artworks I’ve done since my last post, but these are some of the highlights. Next on my drawing board is a series of three sheep drawings that I’ve been commissioned to do by a friend. It’s been busy, but a happy busy. 🙂
