Mindless doodles on their way to the recycling bin.

One thing I love about Savannah are all the little hidden courtyards and carriage houses.  As if the houses on the street aren’t charming enough?!

There’s just something about this house in Rhode Island that speaks to me.  I’ve never been there and it probably has something to do with the fact that it seems so isolated, perched over the beach.    It’s a family home that opened its doors to a wedding in the back yard (talk about a backdrop) and I was lucky enough to draw it as a wedding gift for the bride & groom.

Do all artist’s feel the urge to paint flowers?  Seems like I’m always thinking “one day I should paint that blossom.”  Thanks to sweet bride Aimee, I have finally get to nurture that side of me, even if only for a bit.

I have a feeling there will be more to come….

A little something for the only two people on the planet brave enough to let me marry them.  Can’t believe it’s been a year already!  Happy Anniversary Val & Pat!

In 1904 the Jekyll Island Club was referred to as “the richest, the most exclusive, the most inaccessible club in the world,” according to Munsey’s Magazine.  The Club still lives up to it’s grand title, this sketch a mere detail of the sprawling building and lush grounds.  Click Here to read some of the fascinating history behind the Jekyll Island Club.

It’s so therapeutic for me to draw trees (especially Live Oaks)…Love the gnarled up trunk.

Love love love the Harper Fowlkes House!  Beautiful inside and out, and it’s been on my list to draw for ages.  (my right hand is still crippled from all the last minute details applied last night) The original has been sold, but you can bet I’ll be offering some variety of prints in the not-so-distant future.

A custom pen & ink drawing of a home or garden makes for a very special gift. I still have time to ink a few drawings out before Christmas, but if you’re interested, please book soon.  Remember, if you commission a drawing of an old family home, we can make archival quality prints for the whole family, and with a few quick edits to the original drawing, an elegant holiday card can be fashioned…(see below)
