I see dead birds

I don’t see dead people but I’ve certainly been seeing my share of dead birds lately. This latest pigeon was bludgeoned in the Woodlawn Schoolyard off Westmorland Road this past Sunday evening on April 29th.

At first I thought it was just a bunch of feathers strewn across the green but upon closer inspection the carcass was fresh and dripping with blood. My co-walker and myself were certainly grossed out as I kneeled to get a closer look.

I think the stray cats or hawks or eagles in the neighborhood are attacking!

On a brighter note… the grass is certainly growing green on this side these days!

Spring Magnolias – Series of 5 New Ink Drawings

Magnolias no.1 by Ink drawing by artist Jessica Doyle

Magnolias no.2 by Ink drawing by artist Jessica Doyle

Magnolias no.3 by Ink drawing by artist Jessica Doyle

Magnolias no.4 by Ink drawing by artist Jessica Doyle

Each miniature original was drawn with india ink, pilot pens and opaque white ink on various acid free card stock and are available in the Original Art/Aceo Section of the shop.

Keep an eye out for much larger 10 to 19 inch prints in the shop. They ARE coming soon! Because my miniatures are very detailed in nature I can scan them at obscenely high resolutions and am able to print them out at much larger sizes all the while retaining that detail. And so many of you have been requesting larger sizes… hang tight. They are on their way very soon. Likely in May :) xo

Pussy Willows – 7 New Drawings

I love Spring. Life in general seems easier. No more snow to shovel. It’s finally melting by the way. Trees begin to blossom and flourish giving birth to new ideas, adventures and it all just makes me happy.

Each original Pussy Willow drawing was created with india ink, sepia hued ink and opaque white ink on various cardstock that I house in the studio.

It’s amazing how using the same technique and colours on various papers yields a different effect and result each time.

Each can be found and purchased in print format and also a few of the original drawings are still available for purchase in my Art Shop. Simply do a search for “Pussy Willow” once there to bring up the both the originals and prints.

Happy Spring Everyone!

Fall Tree of the Four Seasons Series

It’s almost that time of year where the apples ripen, the leaves turn yellow, crimson and amber in colour and thus fall to the ground.

Fall Tree is the last in the Four Seasons series to be introduced on my blog. I drew her with Faber Castell Pitt artist pens, Micron pen and painted her with Windsor & Newton watercolour on Arches 100lb watercolour paper. Reproductions are available in 8×8 inch (20,3cm by 20,3cm) size and 5×5 inch (15,2cm by 15,2cm) size.

The other three seasons of Spring, Summer and Winter are pretty to.
