Not only did I finish this painting during the day, but Aki didn’t wake up at all last night. Yay and yay!

I’ve been working on this painting all weekend for my portfolio. I’d been missing this motley crew from HERE WE GO!

Moth Pirates lost island finalTomorrow I’ll be headed back to work. (Where did these last few months go? Oh yeah, breastfeeding a 14 pound baby.) But at least I have one painting done!

The paper buckled when I painted this, but it almost looks like an old document that way. Treasure Map-esque.

I want to share…

…something, but I can’t settle my brain into one post topic. So here are some disjointed things.

I’ve been working on the story about Cat. The roly poly one in the pajamas, remember him? I was flipping through my sketchbook this morning and rediscovered this.

Here’s my studio table right now. It’s nice to have it occupied with a big painting again.

I’ve been going back again and again to Helen Cann’s work as a guide to painting with patterns, but without ink lines. Check these out.

So beautiful. I would love a glimpse into her process.

So that’s what’s up with me at the moment. I’ll write another post when that painting on my table is finally finished. Cheers until then!
