Snail #2

So far I've only drawn two snails. Four ladybugs, two snails. I had big plans, big plans. I was going to do four snails to go along with the amount of ladybugs. Then I got bored and wanted to do other things. Story of my creative life. I am really glad to be back into… Continue reading Snail #2

The First Snail

Hello! After all those little ladybug illustrations, I decided that I would like to try another little garden critter. There were a few I had in mind, and would maybe like to work on in the future, but for right now I settled on snails. Now, I do make an attempt to grow a vegetable… Continue reading The First Snail

Ladybugs

So, some how I got it into my head that I would like to try to draw a ladybug. Where exactly this came from, I have no idea. Sometimes I just go with it. I turned to my new favorite resource, Pixabay. This site is great, and I'm so happy that I found out about… Continue reading Ladybugs

It's not huge,the paper is only 9" x 12".Β  I think what the problem was, was that I stopped and started it too many times, instead of just sitting down and… Continue reading Cupcake with blue frosting

My basic theme for my work is listed as "original art by Jennifer" because there is only so many… Continue reading Painted Pendants

Thyme in Pebeo

Well, you know how I said I thought that I was going to do a whole series of herb paintings? About that.... I think this might be my last one for a bit. I'm not sure if I'm actually bored with them, or if I just want to do something different for awhile. I enjoyed… Continue reading Thyme in Pebeo

Thyme in Acrylic

I continued on my theme of herbs for my next two paintings. I'm not sure if I will keep it up or not, now. I thought I would make it into a whole series, but now I'm not so sure. Sometimes I get bored with the same thing over and over. Who knows, I may… Continue reading Thyme in Acrylic

Basil in Pebeo Paints

This post will be about this piece: Also, have a look here and see the listing on Etsy! When you work with these kinds of paints, they are very flowy. The intent… Continue reading Basil in Pebeo Paints
