first, painting of the week updates. above is “silken” in pen & watercolor

“submerge” in oils on canvas

“heat” in watercolors

“frontier” in acrylic

“cracked” in watercolors

& an extra, i’m working on learning a little handlettering. (flowers just for fun !)

on the knitting front — i’ve finished my picot peds! i used the pom pom peds pattern from the purl bee & they’re adorable & fit me so perfectly that i’ve already casted on another pair !

painting a week

a friend & i started a “painting a week” challenge — we pick a word each week & use whatever medium we like to portray it & post the result on sundays !
if you’re following my instagram, this will be old news but here are the past few weeks work:


“citrus” — grapefruit in ink & watercolors


“flight” — gold tipped wings in pen


“wave” in watercolors


“break” — daybreak in oils on canvas


“starlight” — snowy mountains in watercolors


“sleep” — coffee & reading in bed
