Mixed media: scanned ink and pastel mixed with digital art. I’ve been playing with monochrome, duotone, and black and white, thanks to the inspiration of my dear local friend Tamara Becker. Be sure to check out her photography blog!

One more artwork before I scurry off for holiday time! I’m going to take a few days mostly offline and enjoy the season with my loved ones.

No matter what you celebrate or what your plans are: I wish you a wonderful end to 2014 and a successful beginning to 2015. Thanks so much for following my blog and encouraging me to create. Much love, my friends!

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!

We do not remember days; we remember moments. — Cesare Pavese

Like many folks this month, I’ll likely be blogging less until 2015 rings in. Holidays and other distractions pull me away from the keyboard. Even with art, I’m not at the computer… I’ve gotten myself a fresh box of pastels and a pile of paper to play with. Gettin’ my hands messy for a while. :) Maybe I’ll share some of the results (the above design wasn’t done in pastel, but in Adobe Illustrator). Hope you’re all having a lovely December so far!

Gotta mention: until December 14th… $5 off each item + FREE worldwide shipping on anything in my Society6 store! Must use link: http://society6.com/karengadient?promo=F3BRFQTHCC4Z
