P.S.  I’ve added a friend to the blogroll.  The lovely Charla Pettingill is well worth checking out.  We crossed paths in the SCAD illustration department, then shared the same hair salon, and she happens to be a bird lover!  A girl after my own heart!  Love her!

of paint to a pen & ink.  Thankfully, the new printer allows me to print archival inks onto watercolor paper and paint on it without incurring any smudges.  I like this…a lot.  In fact, it’s got the wheels turning a bit.  Sometimes it’s good to breath new life into an old technique.

A super fabulous print from the very talented Britt Herman! Oh and if you like artists that actually keep up with their blogs (October’s not far off people, and then I’m back on track I swear it!)  she’s a good one to follow.  A great journey this girl is on, check it out.

Thanks Britt!  As soon as life settles a bit, I’ll be sure to find her a notable spot in my home.
