Sketchbook Project - Week 27

This week could be described in so many ways: exciting, productive, busy, a tad stressful, full of energy, but mostly so, SO good!  I just returned from a quick trip to San Diego for an amazing collaboration (more on that later), and I'm feeling re-energized in the BEST way.  Things are happening around here!

For now, let me tell you a bit about my sketches this week.  The mushroom is an actual specimen that I found back on the farm.  It's an amanita called the Blusher. I painted it in acrylics, then decided to change it up a bit with ink for the surrounding plantlings (yes, I just made this word up).  The stained glass windows are based on a photo that I took a year ago--it's the old capital building in Baton Rouge.  I've been wanting to paint it for so long! Wednesday was National Kissing Day, and this is based off my lipstick print. The four rectangles are gradients of color that I saw in the sky that day.  Flying to California at sunrise was the greatest inspiration for this.  The succulent leaves and cacti scene on the last page were also inspired by the San Diego trip.  The triangles were a quick entry and a chance to use a color I was in the mood use.
