Aries Zodiac Sign Watercolor


I love astrology, find it very interesting. Aries birthdays are coming up. I was researching Aries for this painting and found that the flowers are geranium, honeysuckle, and sweet pea. The gem is diamond. Color is red. Fire element. Some (a few) characteristics are firey, warm, passionate and expressive. Which sign are you?

IF Instinct


I love hedgehogs and I thought this baby hedgehog curled up into a ball would be a good "instinct" illustration. Curling up to protect himself. I've never seen a real hedgehog, I would love to. Maybe I should travel to where they are...

IF Celebrate


A little girl who won the best bouquet contest, a good reason to celebrate. I think it would be very fun to have a best bouquet contest. Snow flurries are falling and I am thinking of some flowers I would like to plant in my garden this spring.

Courtyard Cafe and Summer


I love outdoor cafes and courtyards. Visiting places with lots of little shops, outdoor cafes, the ocean nearby, nice warm weather with just a touch of breeze. .. makes me think of summer.

IF Time


I've always loved pocket watches and this topic was a great way to explore them in a drawing. I love the inner workings as well as the unique faces, especially if they have roman numerals and some kind of etched design on the metal.
