A new baby!

My granddaughter, Ashleigh, and her partner, Malika, had their first baby on February 29, 2020. A leap-year baby, how cool is that? I wanted to give them something special, so I created this little video to celebrate Ethan’s first six months.

With love from Grammie.

Hey, St. Nick!

You’ve heard of “Christmas in July,” right?
Well, I like to call this “St. Nick in the Summer!”

I just completed a two-day workshop with the award-winning artist, Maria Saracino. Our project was this beautiful St. Nick figure. It was a lot of work and oh, so many details. I’m really proud of this character.

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you’ll come back, again, soon!

I love colour!

I’ve sure been slacking off when it comes to writing in my blogs. But, then, that’s just the way I am. I go on binges of this, that and the other thing. So, lately I’ve been deeply immersed in colouring with my Copic markers. I’ve discovered a few artists whose work has captured my interest: Christine Karron, Dinny Sidik and Mariola Budek. Here are some of the Dinny Sidik images that I’ve coloured so far. I need so much practice on skin, especially the cheeks and shadows and these images are perfect for that.

Here are a couple I coloured by Mariola Budek:

That’s it for now, but I will be back with some of my Christine Karron images. She draws amazing fairies and her special little guy, Benny Blue. See you next time!

Fairies, fairies, fairies!

It’s been a few months since I’ve posted an article, but I’m back with some gorgeous fairies. I discovered artist, Christine Karron, and now I just can’t get enough of her gorgeous drawings. In this post, I am publishing the a few of the images I’ve coloured from her Fairies 2 collection. If you love to colour, be sure to check her out.

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you’ll stop in, again!

Colouring, in the Christmas mood!

I bought a new gray scale colouring book by artist, Ruth Sanderson, called Santa’s Christmas. I always get into the Christmas mood in November, so this is the perfect colouring book for me. Here are the pictures I’ve coloured, so far.

These gray scale images are so easy to colour and the results are awesome. Try one, you’ll be surprised!
