painting a week update & a knit sneak peek

still going strong with a painting a week! above is “glide”. this one is only watercolors again, i’m working on that technique.

“hole” : flying through a black hole

    

“shade”

   

“contained” : what i think about every time i see the beautiful gems & geodes inside plain-looking stones — futuristic little cities

& a bonus! these peonies are my part of an art trade i’m doing with @rachel_allene

off the needles . . . i’ve knitted another of my rosebud cord keepers, this time with a simple crocheted flower in place of the knitted one.

 

& a sneak peek of a deign i just finished . . i’m finishing up the pattern & hope to have it tested & released soon !!

flowers, waves, ballerinas & lace


the painting-a-week challenge is still going strong ! above is “flowers” — i tried a little something different & used only watercolor without any pens or pencils with a lot of color.


“peace” — oil on tiny canvases (so cute !!)

update : this was published on eat sleep draw !


“grace” — still-frame ballerinas (just watercolors again!) i also posted a little animation of this one . . .

& on the needles . . . i’m swatching to prepare to re-knit this lovely paper-thin sweater that i started a few summers ago.

the culprit of why it needs re-knitting . . my new baby puppy of the time thought it tasted great. i was devastated at the time but i salvaged most of the yarn (& that face! couldn’t stay angry for long) & am taking it as an opportunity to incorporate some lace that i didn’t think of last time.

wip : rooftop sweater & sketches


I’m still working on this knit-in-pieces, light blue, silk & angora cardigan. I spent a large majority of this summer knitting it on nyc rooftops, hence the name.
above : bryant park movie festival . . catching the last few bits of summer in a little pencil exercise
& preparing for a (very very big) project in oils !!

works in progress!

I’m on spring break! I spent the first half of my week-long vacation visiting friends at my old college (I transferred after a major change) & enjoying a little time in nyc. Above is what I was knitting on my 8-hour train ride to the city (A sparkly cotton/rayon tank top) and perfect-sky-blue baby alpaca that I bought at purl soho..

But I’m home now & working on a couple little things. Here’s the very beginnings of a floral watercolor. 🙂
