Over the summer...

School may have been on break, but I sure wasn't. Between a ridiculous work schedule and various family trips, I made sure to set aside some time for art! A trip to the magic garden in Philadelphia was the perfect start to my summer. The garden really is magical and always a source of inspiration. My first project was a portrait of my friend Sam. I LOVE this really displays Sam in more ways than just her face, from the blossoming roses to the simple quote "Do you suppose she's a wildflower?". Possibly the most exciting part about drawing this was that I finally decided to buy my own prismacolors...yes..I spent 120 dollars on pencils.
