Fan me. Feed me.




I’m stepping away from my norm here (just for a moment, I promise) and sharing a slightly different kind of art I’ve been exploring. I’ve enjoyed pencil sketches since high school but watercolors are new for me. The video is a combination of real time and time lapse. I hope you enjoy it!

Here’s the pencil drawing before watercolors were applied.

And the final painting.

Tell me all the arts you enjoy. Let’s be art friends. ^____^

Because…just because. Go with it.

I started with basic straight lines crossing the page. This is how most lies begin.

Then I filled in all the corners of the wedges. This is the most fun step for some reason, probably because I’m a weirdo.

Now that the corners of your mind…er drawing have gone dark, vary the direction of repeated arcs within the shapes, to cover your lies from every angle. Triangular shapes are easy. The trapezoidal shapes were a bit more challenging. It’s big word Wednesday, btw.

And voila! You have a tangled web of lies, solid for a moment yet so frail as soon as a little pressure is applied.

Don’t be a liar. Liars suck.

I feel like I’m in a perpetual state of recovery these past months. Maybe because I am. 😦 

As always, doodling to the rescue! It’s been a great distraction. 

Who’s with me?

I call this one “Visitors” because I had house guests when I created it, but also because the end product reminded me a bit of a giant beanstalk with some sort of alien growth. ~____^

The video is a combination of time lapse and real time. At the beginning of each new section, watch in real time to get a feel for the movement. Then enjoy the remainder in time lapse.


Do you love visitors as much as I do?!?! The more, the merrier.

They’re both now being used in the chocolate decor atop and around European pastries at an international gourmet chocolate company.

My drawings were scanned in and sent to a company that prints them with colored cocoa butter onto sheets of plastic. A mold is then laid over the plastic sheet, filled with chocolate and left to set. When the mold is removed, the disks of chocolate are left stuck to the sheet. As they’re pulled off, the cocoa butter design transfers to the chocolate disk. Pretty cool, right?
