What’s happening in my Sketchbook


It has been a while since I posted any artwork up. I don’t know if it is lack of inspiration, or winter laziness, but I haven’t painted in a pretty big chunk of time. However, one of the thinks I have been doing instead, is playing with oil pastels. (I think it has something to do with being able to use the pastels from my couch.)

I’m not sure when I bought these or where they came from, but they’ve been hiding in my art box for a very long time. I recently started playing with them and have found a new fun hobby. They are like crayons that you can smear around! I thought I would share some of my newest sketches with you.

When I recently went to Hawaii for the first time, I fell in love with all the crazy roosters on Kauai. I haven’t been able to stop thinking of them and sketching them on things.

It really is crazy. On Kauai, there are tons of chickens just running around all over the place. There are no natural predators for them, so they just live and hang out and crow at all hours of the day. It is one of the weirdest things I’ve seen lately.

They were too much fun.

I’ve also been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately. I’m addicted. Scrolling through pages and pages of beautiful pictures of food, crafts, and artwork? Yes please. I’ve lately come across lots of interesting fashion photos and have been tagging them like crazy and using them as inspiration for sketching.

I love the colors in this one.

She’s so windblown.

I’m really enjoying the first signs of spring that are popping up. I can’t wait to get outside and off of my couch. Hopefully, I’ll get back to painting soon, but in the meantime, I have my fancy crayons to keep me busy.

Hope the winter isn’t slowing your creativity.
