Map of Laurelhurst Park

Laurelhurst Park in Portland is one of my favorite parks. It has an old world European charm to it, but feels distinctly Pacific Northwestern. This is a place where you can see how much Portlander's love their dogs.  The park is sheltered by trees so when you are in the park you feel as though you are in another world. This is for sale through my Society6 shop.

Holiday Cards

I finally finished my first holiday card. This is for sale through my shop on Society6. The only bummer about posting this is now all my friends know what my holiday card looks like this year. :)  Happy Holidays everyone! Have a relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

Animals in Sweaters

I cannot seem to get enough of animals in sweaters lately! Probably because I have been on the prowl for cute sweaters as the seasons transition. I sketched these little guys while I was working on holiday card ideas.

working working working

I am working away on some new projects and feeling excited about a flurry of upcoming work (can anyone say gotta pay a high heating bill? :)). Portland is especially beautiful right now, the last of the leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the sky has that light blue, pinkish magical light that signals the closing chapter of another year. It's a time to reflect on what we are thankful for (being able to have a roof over our heads and heat truly is a luxury) and what we have learned in the past year.  It's very romantic. On a much lighter note, lately I have been spending a lot of time drawing animals like the one below for a project I am working on.

Dahlia Pattern

Trying to work with bright colors to offset the grey skies. New hand drawn dahlia pattern I was playing around with today.
