Boxing Day Still Life

 No better way to spend a day than painting with friends.
 Here's some details. I had troubles with the apple, which I lifted and repainted 3 times. I think it looks ok now though.

Well, we were getting hungry, so I short-handed the flowers. I'm ok with abstract elements in a representational painting though. I enjoy spattering the paint around and letting it do it's thing.
Okie, that's all for now. Hope you all are enjoying your holidays!

The Messenger

My illustration for this week's Illustration Friday is the postal worker! Dear postal worker, thank you for delivering cards and gifts from family and friends to my mailbox. :)
Dear family and friends, Thanks for sending them :) Happy Holidays and hugs to you!
Dear readers, thanks thanks thanks for checking out my blog, even though I have sucked-out-loud at keeping it updated. I know one measly painting wont make up for it. If it helps, my New Year's Resolution is to update once a week. YES, Once a week!! It's not much, but I think I just MIGHT be able to do it!
Anyway, here are some details: 

I'm thinking of switching out of cold pressed watercolor paper and using hot press, which has less tooth. Wish me luck :) I hear hot press is a total bitch to work with. Any tips? Gimme! :)

Festively yours,
