Two Painting sold at Art of All Ages 2 Benefit-CCD

Last month I was part of the annual Art of All Ages 2 event at CCD- Comprehensive Child Development Center in Long Beach. The proceeds from the event went to CCD to help provide more classes and services for all the children. Well these are the two paintings that sold at the event. I am so happy that someone new gets to enjoy my art and the money went to a great cause.

Illustration projects from last semester

For this one I had to illustrate a poem and include a spot illustration with it. I chose to illustrate the poem "Lake Isle of Innisfree" by William Yeats:

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

(This was colored digitally using photoshop)
The assignment for this piece was to illustrate a word and incorporate the word into the image.
