WIP Gingerbread House


Here is my latest work in progress.
I love the gingerbread cottages at the camground on Martha's Vinyard. They are so charming.
I would love to paint a series of pictures representing the little village tucked behind Oak's Bluffs marina.
It's so calm, peaceful and charming.
Here is my first attempt - done in acrylics. Painting the details is taking longer than I imagined.
I sure hope I get better and quicker at this.
Anyhow, I'll keep working on this one and post my progress.

Recent Sketches

I love the way these setches came out. I'm keeping a little visual journal and adding pictures to the notes and messages that I write.

It's fun to see what develops as I go. Not everything scans like the original, especially when painted.
I have more, and I promise to keep scanning them.
I'm still learning how this scanner works, so
please bear with me.

Dear Blog Friends

Some of you may think that I have abandoned my blogging! Trust me, I know I haven't posted anything in a long time. It is not intentional. I have been reading posts faithfully. More Importantly, I try to sketch and paint something every day. Life keeps interrupting and keeping me busy. I love my aart and I love all of your beautiful work.
I now have a new scanner that I'm getting comfortable using. So soon, I'll post some of my efforts - promise!
