It's been a goal of mine to paint a pomegranate for some time. You can read more about the journey of this goal in my post "Dear, Sweet November." This past semester, that goal was finally achieved. I was even able to feature it in the end of the year student gallery as well as an exhibit judged by the Executive & Artistic Director of the Duluth Art Institute, Anne Dugan.

A Couple Cards

I love making handmade cards! Unfortunately, I don't always have the time to make personalized cards, but here are 3 that I was able to squeeze in this past winter. I have been painting with oil and acrylic a lot, so cards give me the freedom to use different mediums.

This one is in watercolour. (I'd really like to make more interior scenes especially of places I photographed in the United Kingdom.)

This is a card of William Wordsworth's Rydal Mount that I drew with coloured pencils. If you'd like to view more of my excursion to the Lake District, you can read my post entitled, "A Weekend in the Lake District."
 This is unfortunately the best picture I have of this card that I designed for my friends' 1920's themed wedding. The glue and paint warped it terribly, but I caked it in glitter to try to save it. I strictly live by the rule that glitter makes everything better. ;) If you'd like to see their engagement pictures by LynnDee Photography which also feature a chalk board announcement that I drew, you can visit this "Save the Date" post.

A Night at the Opera

Hello there! I'm hoping to post more regularly throughout the summer, so feel free to leave a comment if there are any specific posts you'd like to read more of. I am also planning on getting a lot of projects accomplished and will gladly document them to keep myself on task. 

 It's been a busy winter, so if you don't mind, I'd like to share some of my non-pet projects with you. (If you'd like to see what I've been doing with my custom Pet Portrait business, you can visit or

This is the poster that I created for Rubber Chicken Theater.
I liked that I was able to use a photograph of a curtain that I took several years ago as the background. I wish I was able to redo the characters though because there are features of each on that bug me...especially Harpo's top hat.
