House Plants Illustration Friday: Pink

I made this small painting on paper to get out this idea again. I have made this image a few times, all different from each other. This closeup is a little over 5'x7".  I enjoy the process and love the idea. Coincidentally I added pink flowers which works for the "pink" theme on IF this week :)  This image is called "House Plants".

Illustration Friday: Mail



It's been awhile but here is my submission for IF and it's titled
"Airmail".

Illustration Friday: Stripes and Happy Halloween 2016!

I was walking through the woods behind the house and stumbled upon this little abode. I knew that 
these little houses existed because I have written about them several times here and here. To actually find one is quite thrilling and I picked it up and brought it home. I hope to find a tenant very soon.
My submission for Illustration Friday's "Stripes" is " Candy Corn Cabin"  but it is a cross between a teepee and a tent which is why it works so well in the woods.  

"Life in a Candy Corn House is Sweet!" 
Wishing you all a Happy Halloween and happy Trick or Treat!

Illustration Friday : Tattoo

Working on a painting but I couldn't resist this quickie on a scrap of rag paper 
for Illustration Friday's prompt. I love making a neighborhood "Tattoo" Parlour.                         
 Many cities have a lot of closed storefronts, Tattoo shops survive the times.
