Backyard Blossom – The Miniature Plum Tree

This tree is loaded with pretty petite white blossoms. Each blossom turns into a miniature plum complete with mini pit and at the mature size of a blueberry they are the sweetest little plums I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating.

I’ll be regularly updating the Garden 2009 Set on Flickr with both photos from my current residence with my folks and that of my own house once I move in 😉

Spring Tree

Size – 8″ by 8″
Medium – India ink and Windsor and Newton Watercolor on Arches Cold press watercolor paper.

Artist Statement – Ever wonder what a tree would look like without leaves or blossoms growing on one side? The new baby foliage on this tree faces the other way, giving good reason to believe the grass IS greener on the other side. Or in this behind the seasons look, Spring IS sprung on the other side.

Spring is the second watercolor in the four seasons series. The Winter painting is beautiful to.

The sun has been shining these last few days here in the city. You have no idea what it feels like to have heat on your skin after 6 months of being couped up inside freezing. Well, winter is not that bad. But Spring sure does feel that good!

The original Spring painting has since sold. It is however available as a glicée print in my art shop.

Thank you.

UpdateSpring was featured on Monkey Bun’s Etsy Pics!!! Thank you Krystal.

Spring is in the air – card design

02sm_astrocard_jessicadoyle.jpgWhile condoms aren’t breaking, I work as a freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator. 😉

This is the front and back of a 4″ by 6″ promotion card for AstroNutrition. This will be going to press later today. Click images to left for larger.

The blossoms were drawn in Adobe Illustrator and later placed into the card design in Adobe inDesign.

Ahh…
the days of
Quark Xpress have passed…
