Pet fish sketches

Betta watercolour

Betta watercolour
In between projects today, I thought I'd sketch our new pets. We have two betta fish (kept in separate tanks, of course). They are fun to watch and sketch!  The white one's name is Thunder, and the blue one's name is Daydream.  My 5-year-old named them both.

New project, coming soon!

Hi you guys!

Are we having an awesome rockin' creative spring so far?  I sure hope so!  March was interesting for me..  Lots of emailing with potential clients, negotiation, and paperwork.  I am always amazed at just how much office work is involved in my job - when I first started, I thought it would be 80% painting, 20% paperwork..  It's more like 70/30, or some days 60/40!  But I love it all, and I especially love my clients!

In between the busy-ness stuff, I went on a vacation to Maui with my hubby and came back super inspired.  I've been painting away as much as I can, in preparation for something brand new!  I hope for it to launch in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, here is a sneak peek:

Talk to you soon, folks!  Have a great day.

Live Sketches

I was the parent volunteer helper in my child's kindergarten class today.  As luck would have it, their gym time was rescheduled to happen while I was there, and I was allowed to come along and sketch during their special gymnastics session!  What a treat.  Balance beams, swinging ropes, bar apparatuses.. Too bad (for me) that they only had half an hour.

Kindergarten Gymnastics

..Those kids move FAST!  I wished for a slow motion button, because they all had perfect poses in all their movements, but my sketching was nowhere near quick enough.
