Bus Life On The Moon Watercolor Painting

My heart is exploding with so much joy and gratefulness for Craig Gordnier for giving me the opportunity to once again create a custom artwork for his amazing tiny home on wheels. I was over the moon to work with him again. Not only was this a wonderful way for me to get my creative juices flowing but also to learn and challenge myself as an artist since I have never painted or drawn a bus before.

The project was originally supposed to be a simple watercolor sketch of his 1999 Bluebird school bus but it turned far beyond what we were both expecting. We worked together to create something out of this world; a wonderful scenery that has never been seen before.

I started off with a sketch followed by the inclusion of palm trees with a hammock (decided on the lawn chair instead). We decided to have the bus be surrounded by purple-blue mountains with evergreen trees. Including the starry night sky with the earth was one of my favorite parts. Now the bus on the moon was just a mind blowing idea that Craig thought would be an amazing inclusion since he is called, The Tropical Astronaut. I also added the astronaut footprints on the moon to follow his theme.

Overall I am beyond pleased with the outcome of this project. I cannot get over how it turned out. Once again, I am truly thankful beyond words for craig j gordnier for having me create this painting. It brought out the best of me creativly. I am now incorporating starry nights into my future projects.

Audrey Hepburn Painting

il_570xN.918473392_mveg.jpg

I seriously cannot stop painting Audrey Hepburn! Here is an expressionistic depiction of her character from her film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She was an amazing figure, not only because of her stunning beauty but also because of her generous heart. Her kindness led her to help impoverished children during her time as an ambassador to the United Nations Children’s Fund. As a result she was awarded several humanitarian awards.
