Witchsona An internet trend was going around. What if you were a witch? What kind of witch would you be?

I think I would be the same that I currently am. An elementary teacher, but to little witches with little star training wands.

Day by Day Doodles

Back in August 2013 I started a daily doodle journal. At the time I had just started my graduate studies, which was quite intensive. I decided to do a daily doodle about my day each day to give myself a short break to draw.

Backbay Sunset

Back Bay Sunset I did this piece for my dad. He at the time had gotten a new office with lots of wall space and wanted some of my art to fill it. I asked what he wanted, and he said “something local.” So I drew this scene of the Biloxi Back Bay. I got the piece framed and gifted it to him. However it never saw a wall. It ended up tucked behind a file cabinet for years.

Not as bad as a watercolor landscape I did for my mom. She bugged me for months for the painting. I gave it to her as Christmas present. She ignored it for six months when my brother stole it. He now has it in the honored the spot above his toilet.

 

We Are All Made of Green

MadeofGreen

For the longest time I misheard the lyrics to Imagine Dragons’ song “Demons” as:

No matter what we breathe,
We are all made of green

It’s really “No matter what we breed, we still are made of greed.” But I still rather like the misheard version.

This is a bit of an odd concept, but it was more of an experiment in using mix media.
