Santa Paintings for My Seesters

I designed this Santa years ago and have been meaning to paint him for my sisters forever. This year I finally got it done and I'm excited about how they turned out!

Both are 12" x 16" acrylic on wrapped canvas.

Prismacolor Colored Pencils Pencil Case

I've been using Prismacolor Colored Pencils since I was introduced to them by a beloved art teacher in high school. I LOVE them!! A bit about them: they are pricey--but worth saving up for. Our teacher advised us to ask for them for Christmas that year and that's what I did. And SEVERAL(!) years later, I bet I've still got a few from that set in my collection. I've since bought several more sets over the years, but they do last a good long time. Prismacolor Colored Pencils are very soft and waxy and they blend like a dream! The colors are vibrant and gorgeous.

I've stored my pencils in the boxes/tins they come in. I've stored them in tin cans. I've stored them in pouches. But nothing really worked for me. Until...

Someone on Instagram posted a picture of a 124 capacity pencil case. 124! I found them on AMAZON and ordered two thinking I'd use one for my Prismas and one for other pencils. Uh, wrong. I needed them both for my Prismas. Had a few more than I thought.
I arranged them by color and tied ribbons to the zipper pulls that tell me which colors are housed in each section. (Each zipper opens to reveal a section that holds 44 pencils, with one of the sections holding a few less to make room for a sharpener if desired).
I find that I use my Prismas more and am able to better see the colors all laid out and in order like this!

These are the pages I'll be working on this month. I spend a lovely evening drawing the leaves and I'll color them throughout the month using my trusty Prismacolor Colored Pencils.

Absolutely no cohesive theme to these days. Some weeks I just draw/write whatever feels right on that particular day. Other weeks, I like to have a theme.

More lettering and less sketching on these pages. It differs from week to week.

No rhyme or reason here. Just chaos. But I like it that way. (The bottom right is a quote from Glennon Doyle Melton.)

Decided to dedicate a banner to my thoughts on the election right now. Enough already! I was back to drawing cupcakes and flowers by Thursday and Friday.

I had Fall leaves on my mind this week. Isn't Fall the best?
