I remember when the kids were so little, I worried they would wobble off the porch when someone opened the door for them. After 15 years of trick or treating, this was the first year that even the youngest didn’t need me to tag along. Not only did I stay home, but it was my oldestContinue reading “Happy Halloween!”
This sketch (for InkTober) was done using as reference a photo of my kids from several Halloweens ago. When I was a kid I loved dressing up. “What are you going to be?” we asked each other. Looking back I loved the creativity of a handmade costume or hand “pieced” together costume – I didn’t sew. We didn’tContinue reading “What are you going to be for Halloween?”

One last spooky sketch and a hint as to what I dressed up as this year. Enjoy your trick or treating!
Lately I’ve been sketching these haunted houses. I hide little things in them, a skull, eyeballs, etc., for my son to find. I love adding the watercolor. The purple instantly transforms the scene to nighttime.
I am inspired by trees lately. It makes sense since it’s Fall. For this piece I started out painting with watercolor. It was just the idea of a tree. Then I added the ink. My tree looked a little too squat, so I made the branches longer. Then, I went back in and added more color andContinue reading “Spooky Tree”
