Little Gabby!

I did a little watercolour portrait for Miss Gabby. It was my first time meeting my friends baby girl, whom we also haven't seen in over a year. It was so nice spending a day with you guys! Isn't she the cutest? :-)

Enjoy!

A Slow Summer

Oh boy. Since having my baby boy I find myself trying hard to find the time during the day to do the little things that need to be done. It seems creating is usually at the end of my list. Its always there, and I hope to eventually check everything off to reach it, but it never happens. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't give anything that I have experienced as a new mom up, but when you are an artist, and creating is in your genes, it makes it hard not to be able to express what you need to express, and that includes being a new mom of course. :-)

Being summer there are so many beautiful things in nature that inspires me. A few weeks ago was strawberry season, and of course I used that opportunity to make strawberry cupcakes while my folks babysat. I had bought new piping bags and tips to make the buttercream pretty! It was something new, and fun, and I loved how they turned out. Pastry arts have always been a love of mine. Cakes, cookies, you name it, I love to bake sweet things.

So I managed to squeeze this lil' watercolor out a few days ago which was inspired by those cupcakes. This painting, which should have taken me 30 minutes to do, instead took me an entire day to complete. Ahhh, the joys of being a mother/artist!


Sorry its been so little here on my lonely blog lately, but I'm trying my best! Hopefully this fall when my hubby is finished with work I will get the opportunity to create more, and show you all more as well. :-)

Enjoy!
