Poppy – Flower Series No. 1

Just to improve up my floral painting skills (and to maybe accelerate the coming of Spring), I’m doing a 30 Day Challenge! All flowers (with a few plants).

These poppies were painted for a business card. I love them because they are such a cheerful flower. The bright pops of red are recognizable anywhere.

If you have any flower suggestions, let me know! (I might run out of ideas!)

Here are some fashion illustrations for you! Don’t mind the Karlie Kloss legs on the girl with sunglasses 🙂

Personally, my favorite is the girl in the lower right hand corner. What do you think?

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 😉
