I saw this old woman at the Dr.’s office when I took my son in for his check-up the other day. I studied her on the sly and painted this from memory.
Isn’t she grand!?
A collection of my oil paintings are currently on display at the 5th Ave. Anthropologie in Seattle. The show will remain up through June, hope you can drop by to take a gander.
Here are my two newest pieces.
The thistle painting was done from one of the photos I took while Seth and I were hiking in Switzerland in 2008. I don’t usually do botanical illustrations, so this was kinda an experiment. I really enjoyed it and wouldn’t mind doing a few more.
The lion painting was partly inspired by my trip to the zoo a while back and partly by my desire to do alphabet illustrations. Hence, L is for lion. 🙂
