Doilies Forever

Who doesn't LOVE a good doily coaster? It's an elegant cup cushion and it graciously takes care of our surfaces. I spent more than a hour studying this one, I really wanted to try and figure out how to differentiate the textures between the doily and my tea cup.


The Practice Peach

It's important to keep trying and doing, no matter what. I learned a lot from just doing 1 hour studies of basic stuff that I find beautiful in life. For today, a delicious peach. 


Grand Opening!!!

I really want to do illustration series about a Hummingbird and her Tea Shop and really try to develop her world, friends, and her passion for making the perfect cup of tea. So to start it off, I painted the Grand Opening of her Tea shop! 


Mmm... Rainy Day

It doesn't rain much in California. It's one of the reasons why I miss home so much. I remember anticipating the thunderstorms back in Connecticut. The excitement of when the sky grows dark, smell of the rain, and being inside listening to the pitter-patter.
