It's been a rough couple of weeks in our home. Our sweet boy appears to be going through a growth spurt, sleep regression, and teething all at once, poor thing. So there have been few naps and lots of wakeful nights, and not too much of anything else. I think he takes after his mama in his aversion to sleep. Why sleep when there's so many other options? ;)
But even though there hasn't been very much rest for anyone around here lately (and even though it's hard being so tired, I wouldn't trade it for the world), I've still managed to find a few minutes here and there for some refreshing art sessions. Here's what's been going down . . .
Soft pastel portrait (so dusty, but so much fun!):
Stabilo pencil + soft pastel + gesso on cardboard (in progress):
Acrylic paint on mixed media paper (in progress):
A new Not Forgotten creation (possibly my favorite yet! but then I say that every time . . .):
What have you been making in your studio/kitchen/digital space/workshop/sewing room/community/heart/mind?
Also, tell me -- are these more realistic creations something you'd like to see more of in my art shop? Or do you prefer my usual, more whimsical + stylized art?
