Each piece of the puzzle

I remember making a woodcut print block design in this manner a long time ago, as if flattening all items in my view, making shapes out of the spaces where an object would overlaps another. I loved it. As I think of it, it reminds me of exercises we had at school where we had…

Craving painting

I haven’t posted anything in a while….. as I have turned my attention to an illustration project I am enjoying. Throughout the process however (it’s a bigger, longer project), I’ve been craving painting…. So, here’s a little project I worked on, during breaks from my illustration project. Not sure it’s quite done yet, but almost…

It’s so lovely being green

So, the snow is here and the holiday season is about to kickoff. I enjoy this time of year but this time….. I’m missing all the green…
