Summer Style

I love this girl’s style for many reasons. Probably because I can so easily picture myself in the same outfit as her. I’m a huge lover of midi skirts, stripes, and Swedish clogs 🙂

Here is another cute girl I painted. I love her brown eyes.

Happy Memorial Day to each of you; thank you to all of the brave men and women who have fought (and died) for my freedom. That is the greatest sacrifice one can make for their country.

I spent Memorial Day at the beach getting sunburnt (even though I used sunscreen, I promise!), eating lots of food, and having a very nice time with friends.

As a result, I am now exhausted and ready to sleep for a good eight hours.

Goodnight!

I tried painting a younger girl (think 6 years old) but this girl looks a bit older. I do like her glasses and ballerina bun. And I like the fact that the bun is a bit lopsided. My buns turn out like that a lot.

If you guys have any questions/comments/suggestions, let me know!

Spring? Just kidding, winter’s still here.

Yes, this is rough. Like a lot of stuff I share 🙂

I still cannot get past the fact that on my weather app, all I see is rain and 40 degree days. Brr.

Oh. Just so you know, this is colored with COLORED PENCIL. That’s right, the medium I don’t like so much. I’d say I need a lot more practice, that’s for sure.

Hello there!

I thought I’d share one more post before I go on  vacation! (Although I might surprise you with another post before I come back…we’ll see!)

I am really into this lovey-dovey, Valentine’s Day, cutesy, etc. theme in regards to making art! It can be such a cliche, but there’s something to be said about cliches. They are overused because they resonate with people. They’re relatable.

I, of course, love vintage 1950s type photos and fashion, and this seems to fit right in with that. My Pinterest board for art inspiration is filled with vintage photographs and picturesque images. Those times seemed simpler. And I like simple.

Also, just fyi, we got about SIX inches of snow last night! I love it. My sister and I built a snowman (actually snow-grandma) and it was so much fun 🙂 Haven’t done that in years!

Here is a picture, just because:

She’s quite chic, I know.

Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow!

P.S. I sold my first art print on Etsy!! I was so ecstatic! Thank you Gwen for buying my print 😉
