Pink Girly Animation for my sister

I made this for my sister.  We just learned that she is pregnant with a little girl, so I wanted to make her something in pink.

This game above is simple, and shouldn’t need instructions, but you can use the photo below for clues.

New Richmond,Ohio: River Town – Original Charcoal Drawing

The other day, I was in New Richmond, Ohio, and while sitting beside the river, I did a little bit of sketching of the marina, and the houses facing the river. It’s such a charming little village and scene, when I got home, I used my sketch for this relatively large (for me) original charcoal drawing.  I love the river, and New Richmond is one of those great little places to watch the river roll by.

The Roebling Bridge

Frank Simkonis made a beautiful video about the Roebling Bridge for KET’s show “Kentucky Life”.  I am honored to have a small ‘cameo’ appearance in his piece.  You can see the video here:

Bravo! Frank, for a great video, and thanks so much for letting me be a part of it!

The Great Escape – Charcoal Drawing

Ever since my trip to Mexico, I have had a new appreciation for charcoal drawing. It was inspiring to see how beautifully you can express yourself as an artist-using very basic materials. The biggest limitations are your imagination.

Sometimes sheep are used to represent people who don’t think for themselves, but follow the group. I love the symbolism of the rogue sheep, jumping the fence to explore the rest of the farm.
