fire spinning

A bit of a blast from the past, but I wanted to see what watercolor did with fire. This is Balleck.

It’s been a bit crazy for me the past few months. I’m just now starting to get enough traction to write again–put out a couple hundred words the other night! Baby steps, right? The past couple days have also seen me working on some watercolor pieces. I’m attempting to come up with and capture more…

Trinh

You don’t know him yet, but he’s the bomb. I also apparently have a thing for red plumes/red mohawks. This piece was watercolor practice based of this really epic piece which you can find here.

To tide you over, I’ll be sharing some of the results of writing prompt games I’ve played with some of my writer friends. These appeared…

We were pretty close to having a Zare episode today. I wrote for hours yesterday–and still didn’t get one finished. But I got a lot of things worked out. So. That’s good. Bodes well for next week! In the mean time, I have this: Yup, I made myself a tee shirt! I kind of love…

doldrums

Late Spring/early Summer is apparently a rough time on my writing! I apologize for the interrupted posting. It’s when all the travel wraps up that I tumble flat on my creative face and find that coloring books are about all I can manage. That and practicing my penmanship. I promise I’m working on the story, too….
