Today's little gift

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

A random sketch of a flower my wandering stylus drew last night.  A random quote I found by accident today that coinsides with some past thoughts.  And the gerber daisy on my desk that inspired the sketch was given by just the right friend with just the right intention.  Just the perfect little miracle I needed today.

Still life with a Bella

Have you ever set up some still life and got all revved up to paint. . . step out of the studio for like 10 seconds. . . come back and someone tampered with it?  Bella the cat thought I needed a little something on the right to balance things out.  She has a good eye for composition, don't ya think?

IF: Infinite

Infinite wardrobe options!  (And infinite Christines!)  Oh how wonderful it would be if I could just sit here and illustrate my entire wardrobe.  Sigh.  I could keep going and going if I had the time.  So the above illustration is a borrowed character from last week. . . my friend Christine.  I figure if I'm on a roll placing her as the main character in almost all of my art, I might as well make her "Miss Information", the character I was asked to illustrate for work.  She's going to be featured in a woman's magazine for a popular adult contemporary radio station here in Baltimore.  Now which outfit will they choose. . . we shall see!

IF: Welcome - Welcome to Baltimore Hon!

Sorry, I couldn't resist!  Inspired by the John Waters' film "Hairspray" that took place in Baltimore.  The character above is modeled after my friend Christine, who got to be an extra in the movie when she was a kid, along with her sisters.  How cool is that?

This is an easy prompt!  So many to choose from.
