Olde Crow
Olde Crow

This is a second commission for @oldecrowantiques that I thoroughly enjoyed creating. He beautifully restores antique clocks (as well as furniture). This clock belongs to a good friend of his (he took a photo and sent it to me); and we decided to use it because of the wonderful detail on it. I love the way it turned out and so does he!

This is Davis. His mother took this photo just after he finished eating his very first cupcake (yellow cake with chocolate frosting). She couldn't get bites to him fast enough--his mouth was always open like a baby bird as he leaned toward her. That stare--might he perhaps be coming off a sugar rush? I'm calling this one "Sugar Gaze".

Glitter Girl

A little break from drawing architecture. This is "Glitter Girl". Avery got into her Grammy's makeup, tan powder with sparkly gold glitter in it. She had it everywhere--face, arms, legs, feet (she left little tan footprints everywhere she walked), hair, floor. And, as only a two-year-old can, she joyfully told her mother, "I got glitter," I screen-captured a still photo from the video her mom, Sarah, took from which to work.
