This is what I always think I’ll be doing in summer, prancing around in sunglasses and espadrilles.

But in reality, I’m all:

I’ve started dabbling in Twitter. On the plus side, lots of updates from Neil Gaiman. On the downside, their picture handling could use some work. Still, if you want to read my thoughts on books, tea, and art, you can find me @DanaDraws.

Think Nice Thoughts
This is my first experiment at using pressed flowers in artwork. First lesson learned: daisies will shed flower seeds all over your nice clean scanner.

Sketches from the family album. My childhood photos are a sobering reminder that I’ve had messy hair ever since I had hair at all. My mom’s whole arsenal of headbands, elastics, ribbons, clips, and barrettes couldn’t keep it down.

A few floral watercolor studies. This has been a bumper summer for the iris patch, and I needed to capture the sheer mass of color going on out there.

Dance of the Fireflies & accessories

The Summer Moon show opens at Twilight Gallery this Thursday! After I finished my painting for the show, I decided to take a shot at digitizing the fireflies into a pattern. Because there’s no such thing as too many fireflies.

See the other accessories here. (There’s also a non-glow version.)
