Pretty much a doodle gone crazy. Okay, many layers of doodles. Every now and then, I do some ‘art therapy’ to let my mind wander and relax, just for myself and not for prints―this is one of those. :)
Hape a great week!
Since I had some friends ask to see one of my graphite watercolor landscapes, I’m posting this one (because David likes it and he makes me smile―plus he’s the one who drives me all over the place to see pretty things). Mind you, I’m no landscape artist… I’m just someone who has seen many miles of desert here in Arizona and I like to keep some of it in my sketchbooks. :)
Have a great week!
Sometimes my art experiments don’t end up as I’d hoped―but they’re still colorful and interesting enough to share… so I’ll post these ‘sketchbook’ experiments for you here. This one was a mix of scanned watercolor and ink plus digital doodling. Hope you’ve been having a good March!

This one is clearly a doodle, but man, did I have fun doodling. Oh, it’s the holidays—and my artwork right now reflects the cheerful chaos of crowds and shopping and too much going on. Hope the holidays are treating you well!

Although I’ve done other pastel work this week, this doodle-like one had the makings of a good mirrored art piece, so I scanned it and played around. Certainly not as bright as my usual stuff, but I like it and had fun!

A tad bit early where some of you are, but still: have a spook-tacular Halloween weekend, wherever your haunts may lead you!
Fractal Autumn. Color and pattern and a bit of fall leaves. Not designed as a Halloween image, but artwork I made ages ago and forgot to share.
View from the Water. Digital watercolor and ink. Sketchbook piece. Figured I’d share the art that I made (for myself―not for sale) in August now that September is here. I love water; it soothes a weary soul. Looking forward to cooler weather here in our rather waterless Arizona desert.
