Metamorphosis – anemone drawing

Anemone drawing by artist Jessica Doyle

When you have felt bad for so long you don’t realize how bad you actually were feeling until you feel a bit better. And when you really begin to believe that when you let go of all that bad, your heart will automatically open and be receptive to all the good.

I drew this mystical marine anemone with ink and coloured pencil inside a 9×9 inch Fabriano Quadrato Artist Journal.

A Little Something – limited edition series of three fine art prints

floral abstract fine art

These beautiful illustrations have taken a long time to produce, from when they first painted one year ago, into fine art prints. It wasn’t until a local buyer here in Saint John requested them as a series of fine art prints to hang in her children’s bedroom that I actually created them this past weekend.

And they are soft, pastel and lovely!

Each measures 8.5 by 11 inches (21,5cm by 28cm). This is a limited edition run of 25 editions only.

Anyhow, they are listed! Enjoy!

ACEO drawings for the upcoming Saint John Gallery Hop Show and yes, I’m dating someone special

The Saint John Gallery Hop is fast approaching and I have been busy working on new pieces for the miniature ACEO group show being held at the Klausen Art Gallery. I thought I’d share with you some progress shots to illustrate how many of the illustrations I create begin.

All of these drawings are created with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens on archival mat board that Mr. Klausen pre-cut and gave to me the last time I was in to visit. I keep most of my pens inside a chocolate tin that my Mom gave me. I have four of these tins. They’re great for art supply storage!

I wanted to draw something other than florals so I began drawing wine bottles using sepia, sanguine and black inks while I was out enjoying a glass of wine at Happinez two weeks ago. Happinez is a little wine bar located on Princess St. in Uptown Saint John, NB. They serve wine from all over the world. It has a wonderful ambient atmosphere and the clientele tends to be aged 25 and up.
