Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine Day


My mom use to always make a big deal over Valentine’s Day for us kids. She always told us the story of how he encouraged his followers, even though he was captive. He sent notes of encouragement and hope out to them by way of courier pigeons. I think he is the perfect patron Saint for Covid-19.

I continued that tradition for my family. So this is what I worked on in Procreate for Valentine’s Day. May St. Valentine bring you comfort and hope in this rather strange time.

Almost New Year’s Eve

Christmas is over, and the New Year is not far away. During this time of Covid-19, I have been filling my time up consumed by art videos, also, drawing, and painting anything that can’t escape from my sight.

This drawing (which has an unprofessional shadow in the left-hand corner because I took it with my I-Phone) started off with just a simple green and red frame. Then problem one presented itself. I got water droplets on the right-hand side of the frame that partially melted what I had previously thought was waterproof ink.

That is why I have my holly decorations slightly dropped down from the center on the right and left outside edges. This is in a watercolor sketchbook, and I had intended on mixing watercolor with permanent ink. Instead, I mixed watercolor with water-soluble ink.



Hope you managed to have a Joyful Christmas in spite of challenges.
