Now that Thanksgiving has passed and we’re more than 24 hours into December, I feel like the year is finally starting to truly draw to a close. It’s not a bad thing, quite the opposite. It gives us all a chance to celebrate and reflect on the previous 12 months, of course. But then we get the more exciting prospect of imagining and planning for the next 12 months.
The weather hasn’t started changing yet, not really (I think it hit 90 degrees yesterday) but I can’t help but get excited when the fall season approaches. It’s not just about the cooler weather; it’s the changing colors of the trees and subtle shifts of the sunlight as the days grow shorter and the sun doesn’t climb quite as high.
Just one of several new little guys I’m working on for an upcoming project. Sometimes you want to make things that are graceful, elegant, refined. Other times, you just need to draw a chubby little tiger who likes baseball!
My first totally finished image using a tablet! There are a few others that are works in progress, but I’m really excited to have this one finished first!
I’ve become an avid gardener over the last 18 months or so, with an ever growing collection of cactuses and succulents (really the only plants that can survive out in my only outdoor space. Don’t ask my about my herbs!). I wish I had enough space for some indoor plants, but for now, I’m just happy to be able to practice drawing them.
Maybe some “portraits” of plants in my collection are in order!
