You’re Invited!

So much fun, making colorful fruits and veggies! This is for the TDAC Eat the Rainbow design challenge. The only hard part was deciding which of my favorites to illustrate. I love them all!

I used simple shapes to create the eats. With a little help from gradients and shadows to add dimension. Click to view more details. My plan was to paint the images. Life got in the way, the deadline got closer and I decided to go digital. I surprised myself at how quickly I put this together. Whew!

There are just over 200 entrants, four will be showcased in a featured collection on TDAC for two weeks. The whole idea is to get designers seen by art directors and creative professionals. Well, I don’t have to be one of the four to do that! This is the first in a series of challenges. I am looking forward to taking part in each of them.

Your invitation has arrived!

The Art On 45 show is on now! All works on view for two weeks. The auction takes place March 16th. If you find yourself in Ruston Louisiana, stop by and take a look! It’s been so much fun taking part and following Christiane’s progress with the event! Thank you Christiane for inviting me to participate!

You may remember my blue bee. I had the idea to rework him, and make him available as a print. I recycled a watercolor bloom as well, and created a digital collage. The background is a photo of leaves on a tree I took at El Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico. A special, sacred place. To the photo I added several effects, including watercolor, to give them a more painterly look. I added shadows for depth as well.

I had a request for a simplified background. I really like it this way too. I played with several colors and may make more available. Christiane is going to gift this to a friend. So happy you like it Christiane!  Honored that you would choose to share my work with a friend!

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

they are the charming gardeners
