Works in progress, pencil drawings, things with no particular category—enjoy.

MEDIUM: Pen-and-ink on Bristol paper
SIZE: ACEO 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in.
I began this as a pencil drawing, using a reference photo I had taken of my sister. (No, her ears are not really that pointy.) Her confident expression inspired me to draw a warrior-type character from mythology. Then, after I read of the Fairy Queen Titania in Shakespeare, I decided to name the work after that. Titania’s stormy personality creates real storms in the sky; and in this work, the air has a definite sense of “storm” about it. Her expression, also, is most definitely queenly. This original piece is in the collection of my sister; but I like the composition, so I may use it as the reference for a colored version to sell.

MEDIUM: Ink and watercolor on Bristol paper
SIZE: ‘OSWOA,’ 4 x 5 in.
Finally completed! Sometimes they have to sit on my drawing table for a while. Then they just pop out at me, and what I’ve been staring at for two months can be finished in a day. In this one, an angel weathers a raging storm by turning toward the Light. It’s something we can all do.

STATUS: WIP–Work In Progress
This Work-In-Progress gives an example of how I normally work–I began with a pencil drawing, and am currently in the process of inking it. When this piece is completed, I’ll start a “WIP” page, where the creation of the drawing can be seen, step by step. This piece is an “OSWOA,” Original Small Work Of Art, which are the size of post cards.
