I am currently working on a year long sketch-of-the day collection that began October 1st, 2016.  Although most of my sketches are quick, I turn some of them into more detailed watercolor paintings, as I did with this pineapple from my May 2012 - May 2013 sketch-of-the day collection.  This pineapple is one of my favorite watercolor paintings that I did that year.  Here are a few more of my favorites from that collection:

The following piece will always hold a special place in my heart, and was also painted in 2012.  It was the first print I ever sold and is what opened my eyes to the possibility of following my heart and pursuing a career in something that I've always loved to do.  With many thanks and much love to you, Abigail!
