My latest drawing: The Sparrow and the unraveling moon, a mixed media artwork: graphite (dark wash), paper, ink, plaster on wood panel, measuring 16″x16″ and 1.5″ deep.
It went through many stages – it started with the flowers, wasn’t quite sure where it will go. I worked from bottom up.
Artwork available in my shop.




I found this beautiful piece of barn wood, painted red – I usually end up drawing on wood, but this time it was asking for painting, a light watercolor painting combined with graphite on plaster.

The artwork measures 46″x12″

Some details:




Big gap in my posts, I was moving, and packing … and unpacking…

Finished this icon I was working on for a while, started with a Byzantine icon and I really wanted to make an icon with graphite, a contemporary Byzantine style icon, i guess.

Measures 14″x14″, graphite dark wash on wood, silver leaf. Available in my shop.

Here are three new encaustics I just finished – with road trips in mind, more dynamic times and warmer weather.

Wrapped up everything a bit late – I finished quite a few new pieces, all encaustics and they are listed in my two shops: Ingrid Art Studio and Bright Day.
I also got a chance to actually take pictures and list some of the new recycled watch parts pendants: you can view the line in my Open Journey gallery/store.

The Owls look really awesome right now on my studio wall as a group…will be sad separating them :-)NEWS_12b

Another ‘Illustration and a line’, and this time, I think, the following fragment is my favorite – I remember this was the fragment that sealed the deal and made me think, yes, I very much want to illustrate this book…

“It is inside this house that one night the phone rings and rings in the darkness, and I get up, sure that is ringing, wondering why the silence rests so heavily in the house, wondering why nobody hears the phone ringing but me, and I go through the dark to where the phone is, without being able to see it, and lift it and hold it to my ear and I listen to the silence of stars.”

Stages for the third piece in the Beatitudes series -5:4

‘Blessed are those who mourn: for they will be comforted.’

The first three pieces are in Grand Rapids right now in the Art Prize show. Didn’t get the chance to take pictures of all three artworks in the series together yet.

Below: graphite and silver leaf on wood panel.


I just remembered I liked the black dog theme a lot and I made, later on,  a drawing version of this illustration
