The sunshower below the clouds in this painting is so subtle that my scanner couldn’t pick up on it, and so you get an iPhone photo so you can understand the title!
I went away from crows and opted for a flock of sparrows flying through the blue sky, staying up above the small sprinkling of sunlit rain. The tree in this one has clearly had a hard life, but is soldiering on, waiting for proper warm spring sunshine and another chance to grow.
What’s your favorite weather?
Above, you can see the tiny sparrows and the subtle glow of sunshine and rain under the clouds. Below, the painting is tucked into a frame, just waiting to light up your life.

Through the fantastic foliage, the tiger stalks its prey. Or that’s what this adventurous tabby cat is imagining. Colored-ink lines give a cartoonish appearance that’s meant to evoke a Disneyish feel (though Disney is usually a bit more coy about cat butt).
If you’ve ever met a cat, you know this is a very common view, however, and soon enough it becomes commonplace. The real question isn’t about the end of the cat facing us, but where the other end is headed off to and what it will find it its explorations.
Above, you can see the lovely details of ink lines and watercolor shading on the foreground foliage. Below, the kitty is in a frame, to be viewed as though through a cat door as it heads out on its adventure.

Beautiful baby-blue blossoms adorn this tree, in contrast to the baby-pink glow of the sunset in the background. Hints of falling petals dot the sky, and barely-seen branches peek through the flowers here and there.
Pulling inspiration from the colors of the trans pride flag, this tree stands tall and proud in support of all the trans people in and out of the military, brave enough to live their truth despite the many obstacles.
Above, you can see the loose, natural details of watercolor overlapping like flower petals, and below the piece is in a temporary frame, waiting to be planted in its permanent home.

The third book in my Consulting Magic series is imminent! This beautiful vine ring will be part of the cover, the same way that the mechanical bird graced the first one, and magical flowers the second.
Gold and platinum vines twine around each other, thick and thin, in a graceful and organic pattern. Bright emeralds dot the design here and there, cradled in little curls of metal so their placement looks natural.
It could almost be a circlet or crown rather than a ring, whatever your imagination desires.
Above, you can see the tiny green emeralds shining out of the curls of metal vinework. Below, the ring sits in a frame, waiting to decorate your home.

Feeling in a party mood? Celebrate! Celebrate! Celebrate!
This dancing Dalek is perhaps also a bit drunk, as he meanders through the world ordering others to join in his celebration. Perfect for birthday festivities, or any other excuse you might have to, well, you know.
I have, of course, made it into a card! It’s blank inside, but I admit I was thinking of birthdays when I drew it.

Rough-textured clouds and rough-sketched buildings make up a surprisingly sublime scene in this newest city.
Clouds dot the landscape, even making a fog from which the city emerges, a mist around which the buildings cluster. The time of day provides the palette, the golden glow of a sun just gone and violet dusk falling down from above, with a brilliant turquoise in between to hold the fluffy white.
What do you see in the sky?
Above, you can see the beautiful shifts of turquoise and purple, blue and a touch of gold, and of course the fluffy clouds at their whitest. Below, you can see it in a temporary frame, just waiting to float into your home.
