I call her my white asian. We joked that she was one of the women in a Indian Jones movie bored to tears!

I had a class this last semester at BYU, that focused on the figure. And not only was I able to draw my most favorite thing in the world (people) I was able to draw and paint them in real life! It was so much fun! What an opportunity to work form life- most of the time I just work from my head. (Not that I am anti photo, just that I am not as imaginative and a bit stagnant when I rely on a photo.) People who can use photos and still be loose have a wonderful ability that I have yet to grasp...

There is a time in a late Georgia Spring, that all the fireflies come out. It is only at twilight and it only lasts for about a week. I was able to visit a few of my good friends this spring (two other artists) when the stars alined (so to speak) and I was able to see fireflies. This illustration was made before that trip- and I am sorry to tell you that my painting has a huge error. Fireflies are not white when they glow- they are green. At least that is what they are in GA. And that is why you research before you hand in the final drawing.
Again, I a romantic at heart! I can't help myself. Try to stop me! Take away my pens and brushes, my ribbons and cotton dresses! I will still find a way to express myself that I see the world through roes-colored glasses...
I call this painting Hogs and Kisses. I called it that because many people think that the couple is kissing ( I was not aware of their relationship while drawing this, so that was never my intention) nevertheless the name has stuck because it has read that way to most of the people who have commented on it thus-far.
