Back in Feb & March, in the before times and the between times, some Patreon patrons gave me sketch requests! I’ve been slowly filling these as the months go along (they normally get filled the month after they’re requested), but forgetting to share them here.
And so, a lot of art with very little explanation!

I did this piece for Instagram back in March but the sentiment continues, and will continue, to apply.
Stress and creativity are weird bedfellows, uncomfortably clashing and mixing in strange ways. There’s not going to be the same kind of Floating Gallery in May because things aren’t done, but some commissions are getting off the books instead, which is its own kind of goodness. My Patreon patrons continue to be a source of support and delight, and their sketches are also getting done, albeit slowly. They will get first dibs on anything that drops in May, including this piece.
Stay safe, be well, and pet your animals. At least the ones that don’t bite.

I’ve decided to stick with my new standard size for Patreon sketches from now on, so everyone gets a standard ACEO (artist card, edition original) aka trading card size piece of art when they make a request. Patrons also get to see exclusive photos, including cat pics, works in progress, and other such shenanigans. Plus, they get the warm feeling of contentment that they support the arts every month!
I’ve also been doing some figure sketch practice, so expect to see more actual people at some point! I’m pretty happy with how the sketches are coming out, even if I haven’t done a ton of them yet.
My commissions queue is full, so I’m working hard on clearing the decks so I can open them up again, as well as finally editing my newest book (it’s so close to done omg), and finishing up some other long-overdue projects. I don’t think it’s possible to feel caught up anymore, but I have hopes that someday I’ll have space to breathe and take on new work!
In the meantime, the January requests post is still open, if you want to join us on Patreon!

Desmond Tutu wrote an entire book titled No Future Without Forgiveness, and the title resonated with the soft, earthy swirls of this painting. There’s two different pieces in my Aglow series this month, and this one called out for a quote about forgiveness to float atop the warm spiral.
A patron commented that it looked like milk being stirred into tea, which fits perfectly with the feeling of warmth and care — for oneself, for others, for the world — that I had hoped to convey.
Above, you can see the hand-lettered quote, a reminder floating on warm earthtones. Below, you can see this large painting in a frame, waiting to bring peace to your home.

The second new painting in my Aglow series this month, this one’s got a quote from another wonderful human being who inspires us to be better humans — Mr. Rogers.
There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.
The message was shortened for this small painting, but still contains his threefold wisdom: be kind. be kind. be kind.
Above, you can see a detail of the brush calligraphy against the soft bloom of purple against blue watercolor. Below, the painting is in a frame, waiting to add a spot of kindness to your home.

Inktober is still going! One ink drawing per day all month, often from prompts. Getting caught up on the backlog still, so here’s week 2 of these little 2.5″x3.5″ cards.
