A Watercolorist's Take on Subway Signage

I love subway signage and I wanted to try it, but on my own terms-- with watercolor. I had one sheet of watercolor paper left in a book and this is something I've wanted to try for some time now. So I figured why the heck not?! It was pretty fun and easy. There was something very liberating about smearing black paint all over the paper.

I think the reason I like subway signage so much is because I love words. It's not the typical message on subway signage but I couldn't resist. These are some of my all time favorite words. I would venture to guess that this is the most beloved E.E. Cummings poem ever. It is not the whole poem, obviously, but I couldn't fit many more words...I hope I spelled everything right!

Next time I'd maybe like to try it with some color behind the letters...?

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.




Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:




This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
