"Ode to Fig" 
A watercolor painting I did awhile ago and never posted.  I used a white gel pen for the highlights.  I had bought one of those big fruit packs from Costco, and decided the figs were too beautiful not to paint!

"Jelly Witch"

I originally drew this with a white background, but decided to color it black and add a glowing effect.  The second picture is taken with sunlight shining through, which gave it a fun texture.  I’m really happy with how this turned out!

Last year I wove 4 yards of fabric out of prima cotton.  It was a huge effort, and I am extremely pleased with the results!  At some point I will post the finished product.

I based this on Lolita fashions.  I had a great time drawing the lace; I used a white Gelly Roll pen to do the details!
