From Quick Sketch to Gallery Wall

I am the owner of many, many scraps of paper: whether they be stuck into a sketchbook, on my dining room table, my purse, my back pack, my messenger bag, my other purse (yes, it has been mentioned to me I have quite a few bags), my closet, my night stand, my dresser, and finallyContinue reading “From Quick Sketch to Gallery Wall”

SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar

Now Available It was last year around this time, that I came up with a Christmas gift idea for my older sister, Sylvia.  After a fun filled evening (as usual) with her in which we joked about how horrible she is with remembering dates, I decided to create for her a personalized calendar to supply herContinue reading “SamSketches: A 2015 Calendar”

Shelved.

It is official. A long time goal of mine has been reached this past week, and now I can check one more item off of my “Life Goals: A  Things-to-Do List.”  (That list may or may not exist and be logged in one of my Evernote App notebooks). What am I typing about? Why, IContinue reading “Shelved.”

Aspiring [Featured] Artist.

Over the weekend I was introduced to someone as an aspiring artist. And while I did smile and nod, say hello, the whole nine yards – I inwardly cringed. See, I am quite a literal person when it comes to that word. as·pire  (-spr) intr.v. as·pired, as·pir·ing, as·pires 1. To have a great ambition or ultimate goal; desire strongly: definition complimentsContinue reading “Aspiring [Featured] Artist.”

#SamSketches: a coloring book

Most of the digital work I do is used for, well, digital media and it is not often that I get to see what the art looks like on paper.  It is even rarer that I get the opportunity to see an abundant amount of it all printed together, side-by-side.  And so last night, whenContinue reading “#SamSketches: a coloring book”

SO HERE IT GOES: date: Saturday May 17th ( rain date May 18th — ::fingerscrossed::Continue reading “Art by the Falls.”

Current Project. #WIP

As usual, as soon as one project is finished I have another one (or two) lined up. This one actually has been a little bit of a current addiction that has distracted me from my painting obligations… oops. BUT progress is progress and as long as everything is done by their due dates, no oneContinue reading “Current Project. #WIP”

The Green Notebook needs an #upgrade.

As much as I am a part of and an appreciator of the digital world, as much as I am one of those people with my smartphone constantly at my side, a monitor from a computer never too far from where I am; there’s something about that glow that cannot possibly give me the sameContinue reading “The Green Notebook needs an #upgrade.”

Portrait Sketches 2012

For the entire month of December I have spent my time, well a good deal of it anyway, penciling away at peoples’ faces. I kept track of my tally of commissions on a “per head” basis, the total tally ending in 26 heads, which is a lot of heads to be milling about at inContinue reading “Portrait Sketches 2012”

Down, but not out (anymore)

Now it is very widely known Sandy visited this area, in fact she made her way into affecting almost 20 states (I googled) but I am not going to list the grim details of her visit.The media is doing enough of that for me I think, and for once they’re actually pretty accurate.I will sayContinue reading “Down, but not out (anymore)”
