Beautiful Trip

I am back from my trip home and to Yosemite. It was fabulous. My mom and I decided to take a walk the last day that we were there and came upon some deer along the trail. All told I probably saw 8 deer that one day. It snowed the second day we were there, the fires roared at the lodge and I got to spend some great time with my family. I did get one drawing done at the lodge which I want to re-draw though before I post it.
My mom will be up to visit on the 5th so I wont have to wait long to see her again.
So now I'm back in the swing of things and will be posting regularly again!

This lady just went up on my etsy. I call her arrow girl. She was raised by wolves and still hunts with them. Perhaps she is a princess of a tribe now but never stopped loving her spirit animal.

Sea Dream

I'm pretty inspired by the sea lately. Of boats and the like. I love the coast line along california as much as I love the mountains and valleys of Yosemite. I've been dreaming about the sea. Of collecting shells and pieces of glass. I hope to get a few acorns while we are in Yosemite(hopefully everything with the US. government will get figured out and national parks will not be closed..) I also want to do some drawings while I am there. Maybe my mom will go down with me to the main fire at the lodge at night.
I'm looking forward to seeing my family. Also my cat stella. Miss that kitty.
Hope everyone had a good week!

Her spirit animal

I certainly have neglected to post for the last few weeks! I've have had quite a few problems with my allergies as of late which has put me in a bit of a fog. The weather has been rather beautiful in SF and one does have to get out and enjoy the sun. Though it has meant lots of watery eyes for me.
The drawing above I did a bit ago. I think I was watching a documentary on the settlement of the west. I wanted to draw someone however that is there protecting the bison as much as he is protecting her. He is also her spirit animal. Drawing the bison was rather hard and I wanted to give his coat a Charles Dana Gibson feel of cross hatching. Well enough explaining! I should color them soon and post that as well. I hope everyone is enjoying good weather minus allergies!
