Lizard Lines

Happy Monday to all! Hope you had a great weekend! I had fun working on a drawing. Still have to add more background color and tree leaf coloration, but it will be finished soon.

It is a picture of a Green Anole on a colorful tree. It is happily sitting in the sun.

I used colored pencil and pen to create this piece. I had a lot of fun trying out the highly textured lined look for the tree bark. Totally have to do some more like this. :)

Promise of a Maple

This seed carries the promise of a majestic maple one day. It may be small now - only less than an inch long, but it plans on bursting out of its small case and changing the world.

This painting has been submitted to Illustration Friday's weekly challenge with the topic of WOOD.

It is a watercolor & gouache with pen on 140 lb. watercolor paper. Size: 5.5" x 8.5" If you would like to purchase the original, send me a comment or message with that request. See for more details (in the watercolor gallery).

Thundering Surf

Photos of our recent trip to the Atlantic Ocean. Very awe-inspiring!

Broken Pieces Fall Into Place

These bits of broken shell are a testament to the fact that beauty can come from the broken parts of life.

I Spy a Butterfly

Mr. Sly spotted a butterfly! Oh my, what is he thinking of?

Be nice, Mr. Sly!

And here is a friend of his, Miss Vixie. She is his polar opposite - sweet, optimistic, innocent, and quiet.
