Not on vacation!!!

I haven't posted in a few days - but I have been busy in my studio.  I have been working on getting my Etsy shop going again.  But I have also been just working on projects.  This "southern chorus frog" was sketched on watercolor paper.  I then used a book written and illustrated by a friend who is a fabulous artist as inspiration for all the flowers and plants covering the frog.  The coloring was done with Copic markers and Inktense water soluble pencils.  I cut him out - now thinking about the background I will mount him on.  Also working on my Summer of Color challenge - but not quite done yet.  So - I wasn't on vacation this week - but I have been "visiting" in my studio.  Till next time - thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed and art-filled day!

  5. I actually love the frog as it is, but I am sure the background that you chose will be wonderful and glad you are spending time in the studio ... sometimes a little bloggy break is good to refocus...xx
