Color Play

Here are some of the many paints I mixed while messing around in my watercolor palette last night.  These samples remind me of my Freshman Color Theory class, except I wasn't crying trying to finish an entire book full of swatches at 3AM. All of these colors were mixed with Yellow Ochre and I am really pleased with some of the dark hues I created because I always try to not use black in my paintings. 

I needed help to create more color ideas for outfit posts, I was sort of in a rut and going back to the basics of painting helped pull me out of a color funk!

What are your favorite color combinations for outfits?



2012 Instagram Roundup

With the first month of the new year almost being over, I thought it would be appropriate to post a belated roundup of paintings from 2012. Here are just a few of my favorite Instagram photos.Although I started Instagram in September, it has been a fun few months filled with travel bloggers, hair stylists and couples. I am looking forward to the new year!



The Happy Family

This is my first painting of a couple with their pet! I loved the idea and I was so happy when fashion blogger Abby made a request to include her husky puppy Milo. I want a Husky puppy now!



What's the Holdup?

Above is an illustration for Heidi from fashion blog Hemlines and Holdups.  Heidi is a self proclaimed clothes addict and she is a student so she often creates posts about sales for stores and discounts which is great for fashion lovers like myself who are on a budget. I can't wait to see the illustration on her blog.



2013 People’s Choice Awards Dresses

Other than my favorite look of the night in my previous post (Taylor Swift) here are some of the dresses that stood out to me at the 2012 People's Choice Awards.

What was your favorite dress?


Hang in there, Taylor Swift!

Hey Miss Swift,

Breakups are tough but you looked amazing at the 2013 People's Choice Awards. Work it girl! I loved everything about your less modest look in a plunging white Ralph Lauren dress with turquoise earrings. Way to distract the breakup news to a more positive topic!

What did you think about Taylor's look, is she on your best dressed list for the week?



Vampy Vamps

I had a lot of requests coming in to paint a character from The Vampire Diaries so I added new prints, totes and cell phone cases on the shop inspired by Elana.

Are you team Damon or team Stefan?

Congratulations Kim!

Congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on expecting their first child together. Can't wait to see what Kim wears during her pregnancy. Or even better, how the two dress their child.



Illustration for Brunette in Louboutins.

Shoes can give a great deal of insight about someones personality. What do you think these Leopard Louboutin's are saying?


Pretty Little Mona

As I mentioned before, Pretty Little Liars is my teen drama guilty pleasure. I am often teased by my family and friends for enjoying the show so I had to secretly cheer for its return. Pretty Little Liars is back just in time to keep me obsessing over the mysteries at night during the Spring semester! Oh dear! As usual, the show brought more questions and suspects but the most shocking was Mona's return. I think Janel Parrish is stunning and I can't wait to see what her character brings to the show the rest of the season.

Is anyone else a Pretty Little Liars fan?

Happy New Year everyone! Let's see how many times it takes me to write "2012" on documents and paintings before I finally adjust and write "2013"!
