Little Red Riding Hood Popup Cards

My students never cease to amaze me with their creativity. 
I love how they each interpret the story differently 
and don't copy each other. 
That is such a gift in this copycat world.
We drew on our iPads,
then emailed each layer to me,
I printed them out,
and we snipped and glued and created cards.

Garden Doodling

A garden doodle to make you smile.
Sometimes I wish I could reach for the sky,
with my feet firmly rooted in the warm soil,
and twist and dance and bask in the sun,
and show my full glory to everyone I encounter.
I hope you will try to do the same today.

an evening with iPad art

I will be teaching:

iPad Art

Saturday, September 24, 6:30–9pm, artEAST, Issaquah, WA

Join me for a fun evening learning the basics of digital drawing on the iPad in a relaxed environment.  Bring a friend and spend the evening learning how fun and easy it is to create and manipulate art digitally.  We will have refreshments and lots to talk about.
This class is designed for beginners and traditional artists looking to expand their abilities while still having fun.  I will share work by other artists, demonstrate how to use this tool for preliminary sketches and changes to help your traditional art become even better, create with layers, show how to manipulate your painting into an entirely different piece of art using digital draw overs, replay some of my sketches from start to finish to show you the process, show you the difference between several apps, and finally we will draw on the "Brushes Redux" or "Brushes XP" app.

to fly or stay put

To fly or stay put...
Isn't that always the question?
This little bird is enjoying the scenery
but his mind is elsewhere-
up in the heavens soaring through clouds
and breathing in all the scenery down below.
