One door closes and another one opens

As sad as it is to say that July's watercolor month has come to end I am happy to report a new adventure begins for me. I have received a couple of commissions to do my Vingette Art from a couple of people and that really excites me! I was only doing "Pierson's Great Adventures" to write and illustrate a small book for my grand-nephew to give to him at Christmas but I get to continue on working away at what I love!
How lucky am I?

day 29
Currently the last of Pierson's adventures BUT I am hoping to write that book
( just for him ) so hopefully, you will see more of that in the future

"I am 3! Hear me Roar!"
day 30
starts the work on my commissioned piece

day 31
Pen work rates as one my favorite things to do! I love how it really brings out the details and makes everything pop!

As #WorldWatercolorMonth is over, I've decided I'll be continuing on with my weekly posting of art instead of blogging every day...
and so this begins August

day 1
Finished "The Little Mermaid" and I love how it turned out.
I swear I could keep this for myself it's so darn cute!

"Little Mermaid"

day 2
Started on the next one...
it's too dark right now so I'll work on lightening it up some.

day 3
much better and I've decided she will be a fairy in this one!

day 4
And the second one is completed...not sure which one I like the most, but I can say this, I'm pretty darn happy with them both!
"Moon Child"
Oh and I finally got a proper phone and now have an Instagram account. Talk about teaching an old dog some new tricks, whew! I never knew hashtagging was like an Olympic sport! lol

So in love with your style! These are adorable. Hope you keep photos of the artwork before entering the child because the template would make fabulous books for other kids too! So happy you are able to do what you love! Gorgeous work!

Hugs Giggles
