To Give Life – Free Artwork – Merry Christmas

We have traveled together on this journey called life. Sometimes it’s joyous, sometimes it’s scary, for nobody has answers in their pocket. We take one day at a time and observe. We grow, move towards that which builds us, edifies us, and makes us…

Glitter Falling Snow watercolor sketch

As the sun peeks out from the clouds, the snow is transformed into glitter. Glitter, literally. It is falling soft and slow, straight down for there is no wind. A calm hush prevails. It is a very holy moment. As I sketch this scene from…

Dariana’s Chickadee watercolor

I painted this for my friend’s step-daughter. She is visiting from Costa Rica. This is her first time in America. So what does a girl from Costa Rica need from Chicago? SNOW! Unfortunately as it turns out, this is the mildest winter Chicago has…

New Year New Hike New Sketch

It’s been a while, huh? After having the stomach virus, I managed to find a tiny piece of ice to fall on….right on my tail bone *oooooouch*. That left me sore for over two weeks! Soon Christmas arrived and the holiday parties kept me busy. All of…

Red Tail Hawk Sketch at Orland Grasslands

A big white chest is what caught my eye as I drove 50 mph down LaGrange Road this morning. So prominent and bold, yet silent and devising. Not a muscle did he move, just a fixed stare beaming below…waiting for his next meal perhaps. Just a…

Winter Tree Watercolors Plus Sound

Every time I begin a painting I ask myself, “What feeling are you trying to portray?” Do you remember the first time a chickadee surprised you on a tree branch? That instant feeling of delight? I want to capture that feeling and express it through the medium of…

Red Wing Blackbird Sketch

Spring…hello…spring? Where did you go? Yesterday was 65°F and mostly sunny, just beautiful. But when I woke up this morning, I was greeted with a snow storm!  Yes, the temperature has dropped over 30 degrees and brought with it a northern storm. What a teaser….
