Conference Faculty Piece

This was the faculty piece I made for the Odyssey conference. It is McCaffery brown ink on Rives BFK. Colours are with Albrecht Durer Watercolour pencil and Polychromos Pencils. She was a labour of love.

Time to Pack!

This has to be my last flourish before leaving for Odyssey. Inspiration hit when I was supposed to be organizing supplies to take. Officially done flourishing now until I get to Boston!

Cherub in the Garland

Just finished my final flourish for the Odyssey class. Tomorrow I will begin to pack up my pens and inks and get prepared for the conference. This little guy is done with my favourite McCaffery brown ink on Rives BFK. Colour was added with Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils, polychromos pencils and gouache.

The Garden

I sure haven't had any time to visit my gardens this summer! Good thing we planted Hostas and they don't require much attention. Holly's rock and water gardens are doing fine and I do have a big crop of blackberries that are almost ready. This little piece was done just because I liked the quote. It is 6x4 on Diploma parchment with watercolour and McCaffery's brown.

Time to Breathe

Just home from 10 days of travel. Now I have a few days to breathe before teaching at my two summer conferences. I agreed to do the Iampeth Round Robin so I am trying out little pieces that I can flourish in less than 12 minutes.
