Draft One: Paris Streetlamps

I completed these new drawings a week or two ago: Paris Streetlamps (I should really do more). They just need some cleaning up, and then they will be ready!

Ottawa House Completed


Finally, I have modified this piece to completion. I decided to apply a title to this one (which I have never done before) with a font called "Fang Song."

Facebook Page


I'm so proud to launch the Beck and Cilla facebook page! Though I've been a Facebook skeptic for a while, I decided to begin crafting the page back in September in my spare time, and last night it was finally ready.

It's just within 18 hours now since I launched it and started inviting friends, and I've over 125 'likes' already! I'm excited. Facebook ads seems to have helped a little ;).  I am hoping this will prove to be a fortuitous choice for me.

Ottawa House, Cushing's Island, Maine

New drawing! Ottawa House was a summer resort hotel for Canadian vacationers on Cushing's Island, Maine, which burnt to the ground in 1917.

This is just a second draft, now. I plan to expand, polish, and add more detail to the facade.

New Twitter Account

The twitter feed I had was just getting too conflated between by personal tweets and my art-related ones. So, I decided to divide and conquer.

Painting Follow-Up

Here is the final result, a gift for a friend:

Tumblr Open Arts

Tumblr Open Arts is an artists' blogging community which publishes submitted work of artists with active blogs on Tumblr. It's a great online gallery for emerging artists like myself.

My Elizabethan Gilt Tigerware Jug drawing was published today! The curator of the blog is somewhat selective, so I feel proud.

New Abstract Tree Painting

This I did about a month ago, a departure from my usual style of small finicky  brush strokes into a use of bolder, sweeping strokes and dramatic color. You like it?



I also did this other one the day before:

We All Make Plans

Plans, plans, plans. Ok so I have a plan.

I think it's time to pay some homage to my homeland: Cushing's Island of Maine. I have many ideas - at the top of my list is a line drawing, of course, of Ottawa House, an historical summer hotel getaway for Canadian vacationers which burned to the ground in 1917.
