So funny that my first fan art painting is of Elle Fanning. I'm not really a fan in the sense that I follow her on social media or see every one of her movies. But I do like her style, and this Vogue cover was just so beautiful. Dress by Valentino. Original photo by Annie Lebovitz.
There's nothing like bringing your sketchbook and capturing some of that vacation magic while you're away. Here are some plein air watercolor sketches from my August vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Squirrel, this little black pug, passed away last week from cancer. Her owners and her best friend, Moose, the tan pug, were devastated. I completed this painting back in the beginning of August. I'm so glad I was able to memorialize her for her people before she passed. This was such a fun painting to do, and I loved looking at Squirrel and Moose's sweet, almost human faces and exploring how to paint fur for the first time.
