The little sister to the big sister says,
“I’m mom’s favorite.”
Big sister: “What? No you’re not.”
Little sister: “Sure I am, she told me just yesterday.”
Big sister: “She can’t like you too much, she made you come out here in the middle of nowhere in this blazing heat.”
Little sister: “I can’t argue with that.”
Playful, colorful and fun is two sisters laying around on a lazy day in the sun. The big sister looks so annoyed by her sibling's so-called family status and strikes to burst her bubble with a bit of reality. Family vacations, they're only fun when you cartoon them.
Painting details: High texture, high color, solid black faces, exaggerated features such as ears and eyes, large eye lashes, floral buttons, polka dots and swirling water.

This is a mixed media painting I did before eating dinner. I started out drawing in crayola crayon then I used crayola markers with water over the crayon. I smoothed here and there then added extra layers of crayon under marker until I was satisfied.
The smooth crayon under layer makes working with markers very easy. Shading is easier as is covering up mistakes. I also like the texture it makes where marker stains the paper but not the crayon. I discovered it's best to use yellow with green marker or blue marker with yellow in order to get the desired result of green. It's been fun experimenting with the two mediums.
Flowers Before Dinner is the start of my second sketch diary which has been dedicated to flowers of all kinds.
She started out as a quick sketch while watching television then quickly blossomed into a young princess dressed in rose, peach and blue.
Painting details: Leaf below blue eyes, white flowers in her hair, pink flower on her cheek, cherry red lips, pink and white hair, floral background.
