Sunset at Low Tide

Sunset at low tide

Created in Adobe Sketch, with an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.

My interpretation of the #Pointillism painting by Theo van Rysselbergh “Beach at Low Tide, Ambleteuse, Evening”. I have always adored this painting, I loved the use of colors. I did my best to do it from life, spent a few hours at the  #portlandartmuseum however there were many people there  so it was difficult. I really enjoyed this style and hopefully I will make more like it.


Big Update

Fall term I am happily taking a drawing class, and here is a gallery of Unit 1 and Unit 2:

[Re-posted from FaceBook] I am feeling my “artist brain” coming back to me, ever so slowly. Like a long lost friend that I was really close to but due to circumstances I had to part. Sure we talked once and a while but it wasn’t the same.

But now we are together again, and communication is hard, but there are moments of how it use to be, and something strangely new wrapped up into it all.

I feel myself drifting back into this place that I use to visit, zone out and stare at something seemingly banal but then it lights on fire and explodes with content and purpose. I come to, shaken by someone needing my attention, and realize I had been staring at the legs of an out door table.

I am excited that I am experiencing this. I still have the moments of depression were I feel like there is no point it putting pencil to paper, but then I do, force myself, go go past this invisible wall of doubt/fear/pain and joy fills me.

Back to school!

So I have made the decision to go back to school for web design. So super exciting! In two years I will have an Associates in web design, since my Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design did not touch Web Design, and ever since I left all I seem to be doing is web stuff. (That is a terrible sentence…)

I will put up sites and projects when I get them done. Also because I am back in school I am sure I will be drawing a lot more so I will post those as well!

I am already doodling…



Adamar is my new laptop so he might show up a lot. He is my new baby <3 <3.

Ponies and Gingerbread Houses

Welcome to the herd as they say.


I’m gonna practice a whole bunch more! XD


Here are the set designes I did for Hansel and Gretel:
Outside Hansel and Gretel's House Inside Hansel and Gretel's House Outside Witch's House Inside Witch's House

I drew them in Illustrator, to get the prospective/sizes right, then projected them on to the board and then painted. I had a lot of fun!
