What a Day!

Warm up Sketches.

My Quick Draw one hour painting won second place.

I sold this painting and raised money for the charity, SAFE.

The wine at Prince Michel was yummy and the glasses were so BIG.

The boys harvested from the garden, cute in the wagon.

It hailed!

Quick Draw this Weekend

I am going to be a participating artist in a charity event this Saturday at Prince Michel Winery. The premise is all of the artists have to produce a work of art in one hour on the premises. Some artists have been practicing for six months but I just started this week. Here are my first two attempts. Which one do you like? The first one is a safer option but the second style may be more dynamic. I feel that I should be entertaining, like putting on a magic show but there sure is a lot of potential for the painting to go horrible wrong. Lots of drama in this event.

Whole Foods

I am applying to be the back up store artist for Whole Foods. Doesn't this just sound like the coolest job: being a designer and illustrator, working with the computer and creating chalkboard signs by hand, all in a spectacular setting. Don't you just love being in a Whole Foods store? What a great place to go to work.

I did this sign with some children's chalk, I think they use some sort of chalkboard paint in the stores. Lots of tricks of the trade to learn I'm sure.
