I guess I have been dreaming of warm weather lately. My recent paintings in acrylic have got me using a summery palette of colors. Today's tea cup is my second small painting in acrylic on gessoed handmade paper...only a few more sheets left.

It's nice to daydream of summertime fun when it's cold outside and there's snow in the mountains. I just finished illustrating and designing the invitation to this year's fundraising gala for the Kostopulos Dream Foundation, home of Camp Kostopulos in nearby Emigration Canyon. This event raises funds for underprivileged children,
teens and adults with physical and intellectual disabilities so they may experience the pleasure of Summer Camp (think cabins, swimming, horseback riding, fishing pond, and canoeing at a
nearby lake). Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? You can find more information about it here.
The other day the air was clear and crisp. Across the valley you could see the lake and the mountains beyond. It left an impression in my mind's eye and inspired today's tea cup image.

Illustrator, artist, illustrative graphic designer, tea drinker, food lover and admirer of cats. I love color, simplified shapes and lyrical linework. Painting with gouache, watercolor, acrylic, and digital pen feeds my soul. I blog mostly on Tuesdays and Thursdays about my projects and latest work, paintings, experimentation, news and events about my art, and what inspires me. If you post a comment it will make my day!
