Illustration Friday: pet peeves

Most of my pet peeves center on nature vs. development. I don't go along with the idea that every piece of land needs to be owned and developed. I love buildings and homes but the idea of ownership gets blurred. We are custodians of land that we should nurture and love. The animals are getting pushed out, the bees are having problems and yet we continue to develop. I know the animals adapt somewhat (Hawks living in Cental Park) but as I hear them each day calling out to each other I am grateful they have a place to fly, swoop, mate and teach their young. Topanga State Park and Will Rogers State Park are threatened with closures for lack of funds. This is a small dimensional painting I made quite a long time ago "Night Hawk 2" and it is my submission for Illustration Friday's "pet peeves".

Illustration Friday: "Heavy"

My submission for Illustration Friday's "Heavy" is a work in progress. It has a little attic room that goes with it, but I am just showing this closet today. I plan on making it look old and antiqued in the end. It looks like it might be a heavy piece of furniture but as you can see it is light and fits in the palm of my hand! I will repost when this whole project is done.

Happy Birthday to the best sister a girl could have! I love you Dee Dee xoxo

Illustration Friday: garden

Pardon me while I work, but help yourself to the garden out in back. That is how life is sometimes, to busy to enjoy the garden... My submission for Illustration Friday's "garden" is a greeting card for Marisol to be used for "Some help around the house". It was deemed to dark and was rejected but they had to pay me anyway.
