Tiny scribblings


"clover sproing!" ink/watercolor 5.5"x7.5"
This week was incredibly stressful in some ways. Luckily, I have a wonderful loving partner, patient children and a creative outlet. No great magic here, just some scribblings for IF.
"Phobia" This little bird is afraid of heights. Just like me. But he is over coming his fear just in time to be launched into the air.

I worked a bit on four little original illustrations for fun. Here are the three I like. I am not crazy about the fourth, but if you want it sight unseen, sort of wundertuete, or grab-bag goodie sort of thing - feel free to email me with your mailing address and I will send it to you free - just so!
The other three are in our new Art under 30 category at the shop.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I intend to!

The word for the day is ... reflect ... like a mirror, on yourself or taking just an extra moment to think it through...

I'm torn as to which I like best but I'll go with the first I think. Have you ever illustrated any kids' books?

Love the art under 30 idea. Must do some...

Nancy said...

They are all so fresh and appealing. I love the white cloud in the second one and the first is just terrific all around.
Off to see what Art Under 30 is about. (Hoping is minutes; not age.)

These are all so wonderful! I think I like the third one best, but I'm always a sucker for texture. :)

These are beautiful, I adore the top one!

Aw, I bet I'm too late to stake claim to your illustration. Wah! I bet it's lovely!!! And I love the little birdie. I had to overcome my fear of heights today (somewhat)...I made it to the 3rd step of a ladder! LOL

The early bird gets the worm and although my children were up today at 7AM (way too early for me) I did not check your blog until now. and I am asuming I am too late :(

I adore your bird paintings.
These three are darling.
I have a feeling these types of paintings are not your favorite (do you li
ke more abstract better?) I like many different styles of art, but these cuties hold a special place in my heart. They are delicate and at the same time have a very whimsical quality; especially the third.

melba - i love to paint everything which is my style - sort of all over the place, but there is not one subject matter i like better. i have always drawn and painted these little illustrations since perhaps age 12 or so and they are close to me. i find myself working in series of small and large now more than illustrative and abstract - which has given me a lot of feedback (not always positive) from some of the galleries i show my work at. i really just paint whatever moves me at the moment and see where it takes me. one thing for sure - it isn't all good! but i am into the process ...

great painting..

Meltem Sozer said...

Great work Susan. I love how simple yet how attractive the first one is.

irisz said...

the top one is my favourite, so sweet
