Disguise Revealed

I concur with the quote from Margaret Atwood:  "Everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise."  For more on this, check out the Illustration Friday website.

Surfing the Big One

This composite was done to illustrate the word "influence" for Illustration Friday's weekly challenge.  Most of what I draw & paint is influenced by nature.  This photo of the ocean, taken at North Beach in 2009, is superimposed with an illustration of "The Big Wave," done years ago using Saatchi on-line's digital painting tools.  Then a pen & ink drawing of a surfer, modeled after nephew Gregory when he was younger, was added.  The Big Wave was originally inspired by a series of nightmares I used to have in which I nearly drowned from tidal waves.  Happily those big waves seem to have receded and I have safely paddled out to where the ocean is a bit calmer.

Rainbow Studies - Final Ibiza Painting

The painting "Life Map Rainbow" (top, pen & ink & watercolor painted in Ibiza July, 2011 ) is juxtaposed with the "Fractured Rainbow" painting done in Greece in 2010.  I was happier in Ibiza than in Greece when the paintings were done.  More important is remembering that even when things are bleak there are always rainbows!

More Ibiza Paintings

Two more watercolors I did on vacation in Ibiza in July:  Model in Red Leather and Ibiza Bird.
