Illustration Friday: detective

I kind of drove myself a bit crazy with this prompt and since I am busy it was a good excuse to avoid it all together but in the end I remembered this painting and thought it is the kind of street that you would expect to see a detective. I had to post something...

My submission for Illustration Friday's "detective" theme is an acrylic painting on wood panel called "Rendezvous". Whew down to the wire ;)

Illustration Friday: linked

I have made a lot of houses that are connected or linked but most of them I have already shown. Linked is a wonderful word and I can think of so many things I would love to make for this prompt. While the paintings dry, I made 2 houses that are linked. They are made of paper and paint. My submission for Illustration Friday's "linked" theme is "duplex" :D

Hope you are having a lovely weekend and please check out the brochure printing giveaway here, it is free :)

Illustration Friday: dip

Well I'll be dipped! I cannot remember if I have posted this Easter card in the past? Probably not because it doesn't have a house ;) My submission for Illustration Friday's "dip" theme is a die cut Easter card that is vintage style. When you bend and fold the dip in the egg it creates a little easel to help it stand on it's own . I have always enjoyed dipping and dying Easter eggs. Happy Easter and or Happy Passover.
