I think the last couple of weeks have been rough around here between being sick, keeping up with my awesome e-course students, working on freelance projects and dealing with some plumbing issues, my time to be creative has been limited. To say the least.
Although I couldn't find time to start a whole new project, I did find time to finish this little painting:
You might remember seeing this piece that I blogged about back in December. I'd planned on finishing this up in a few days time and then offering it as part of a giveaway to you, my lovely readers.
But it ended up being set aside until a couple of nights ago when I dusted off my brushes and paints again.
I'm still most in love with my digital illustration style, but it's such a relaxing break to get back to paints, brushes and pens every now and then.
Here's the finished painting:
Keep your eyes open because this little 4 x 4 inch painting will be part of a giveaway here on the blog next week, along with a fun assortment of extra goodies I've been hoarding: stickers, postcards and mini notebooks too. It will be a prize jackpot for the lucky winner!
For my next creative project, I'm planning on designing/creating a shadowbox with an owl motif. If all goes as planned, I've have tutorial for you along with some free printables.
