Here is a piece I did for myself....I was sketching out ideas inspired by a story by George MacDonald "The Day Boy and the Night Girl" that I read in my younger years. I decided to put most of stars in her hair when I was finished painting.
I am going to work on a piece next that incorporates both the girl and boy (from the story), a two piece that flows into each other...

Here is a piece that I did for Lawrence.com about gender in politics. The Art Director particularly liked the heels in one of my sketches in part due to Palin's ubiquitous quote: "heels are on, gloves are off"
I wanted to allude a little to the negative side of the story a bit with the heel about to possibly step on the white house and the suggested darker clouds above the white house.

Here is the piece that I did for The Dallas Morning News, sketch to finish. The article was about a womans travels and her gratitude towards having seen all the beauty along the way...
I really enjoyed working on this project...and I loved the title with it.
Here is the link to the online article: Gratitude Article

Here is a watercolor and ink piece I did not too long ago. I love what ink does when it hits wet paper....
"Such an emotive and sublime work! In my opinion, this captures the true essence of the total serenity of a starlit lake twinkling under a summer's evening sky and it contains all the elements of what a perfect watercolor should be." -Michael Sprouse

Here is a piece that I originally did in watercolor...and then took into Photoshop. I brought in layers of watercolor and ink texture and tried to build up depth. Its different from the way I usual work, but I found it refreshing and I think it turned out allright.
