Illustration Friday: Equipment

You are not seeing things, come closer, this is the dance of the hammer and the nail. It is a rare treat to catch a glimpse of this elusive happening! My submission for Illustration Friday's "Equipment" theme is an illustration I made while the painting I am working on is drying so this is quick and dirty and down to the wire ;) This little painting on paper is called "Home Work". You cannot build a house without the proper equipment. The humble hammer and the nifty nail ;)

Illustration Friday: Fearless

The person that moves in here might enjoy living on the edge and could be considered fearless.
Or they could just be a bit crazy ;)

My submission for Illustration Friday's "Fearless" theme is a quickie called "hilltop house".

I have been away and now i am back. Cocoon would have been a better word for me but I had to miss last weeks theme so i was certainly challenged by this word as it does not come to mind when you think of a house or home. There are a few buildings in Topanga that remind me of this one :D
