Blue Plate Special


Here’s one last #doodlewashdinner for the road. This spring, we have been making our own chicken salad. While painting this I learned that it’s a little difficult to draw chicken salad and make it look appetizing, but let me assure you that this lemon-y, craisin pecan goodness is so fresh and perfect for a warm evening. Pair that with some warm, soft homemade pita bread and a bowl of fresh fruit, and you’ve got a perfect spring or summer dinner.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in #doodlewashdinner, and thank you to Charlie for the challenge! It has been so great seeing everyone’s beautiful meals this month!

Inky Emma


The lovely Birgit Winter mentioned Pitt artist pens in a recent discussion about go-to art supplies, and I got curious and started researching. Then, out of the blue, my family surprised me with a package of them! This is the first piece I did to experiment with them, a little character design of Jane Austen’s heroine Emma Woodhouse. I am head over heels in love with them and the different thicknesses of lines that they produce. Can’t wait to continue playing with them.

Thanks to Birgit for the recommendation and to my folks for the surprise! Art supplies are the way to this girl’s heart. ❤

Liebster Q&A!


Happy Friday, everyone! The wonderful Sissh of Sissh Art Journal has nominated me for a Liebster Award! The Liebster Award is a way to get to know other bloggers, discover new content with smaller followings, and to celebrate blogs that we love, so a huge thanks to Sissh for the honor! Along with the award are some fun questions that I am going to answer below. If you want to know about squirrel meat, P.G. Wodehouse, and awesome yet obscure people from history, continue after the jump:

Scooby Snacks


So here’s something a little different. The other day I found myself watching some Scooby Doo (long story) and imagining what the characters would look like in the 2016. It was fun examining each character’s style and seeing how that might translate into today’s fashion.

And yes, it isn’t a modern reimagining unless someone has an undercut hairstyle. 😛 I thought it fitting that Shaggy, as a typical hippie, got updated into a typical hipster.
