I thought I'd post this for Illustration Friday. This is a painting of an elf I did in monochrome blue.

In Progress - Girl with Blue Butterfly

Here is another work in progress. I haven't had much time to do anything for Illustration Friday, so this blog has been a been a bit inactive, so I thought I'd post some of the things I've been working on. I was sort of thinking of a modern day Snow White looking character, so this is what I came up with.

Works in progress with Pixie

Here are a couple of works in progress on my desk with my Pixie at the top. I'm working on painting a circus girl with a pink background. The one at the bottom is my Girl From Ipanema. I've been listening to that song a lot lately, so it was in my head while I was drawing and painting this.

Side views of Pixie

These are side views of my Pixie that I just finished and that is up for sale on my painting blog

Circus Girl with Lollipop

This is another sketch for an idea I was trying to develop for a 4"x4" painting. I couldn't get the lollipop to fit in the painting, so I left it out. Maybe I'll do another one on a bigger canvas because I like the lollipop.


This is a preliminary sketch for a painting that I'm doing on 4"x4" canvas. I always tend to like the drawings of my first ideas best.
