Drawing A Day #65: Rain rain

September 27th, 2010

It’s pouring in Ottawa right now. In fact, John and I heard two separate forecasts that used the word “juicy” to describe the weather system passing through our area. Juicy???

Today’s D.A.D. is called Rain rain:

I was going to include “go away” in the title, but I actually kinda like this weather sometimes, so I left it as is.

Stay dry!

Feature Friday #16: Angler Fish by Choleena DiTullio

September 24th, 2010
** Update: Choleena’s Angler Fish has been purchased and is no longer available.
The buyer contacted us
directly, so the listing has been removed from our etsy shop.
Please visit Choleena’s website to see more of her art. THANKS! **

Choleena DiTullio is an artist who’s recently returned to her birth town (Ottawa, Ontario) but the influence of the East coast, where she was living for the last 20 years, still shows. Her paintings focus on the quintessentially-maritime theme: fish. Choleena has donated an original watercolour painting called Angler Fish, part of a series called Forty Fishes.

The painting measures 2.5” wide x 1.5″ tall, and it comes with a 6″ x 6″ white matte and foamcore backer.

Choleena holds an honours bachelor degree in Fine Arts from Mount Allison University. She regularly shows her work in solo and group exhibits in New Brunswick, she’s won international design awards (like this one), and is an avid volunteer at the National Gallery of Canada. Her work is in the corporate collections of Dre. Hélène Huard Corporation, Tantramar Interactive Inc. and Paturel International Company, and also in private collections in Canada, the United States and Australia.

To see more of her art — including some very cool glow-in-the-dark pieces — visit www.choleena.com

Thank you, Choleena!

And a treasury mention for us, this time for Pale blooms, in a collection curated by firstlightphoto:

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Drawing A Day #64: Traffic Jam

September 23rd, 2010

Seems like Em and I are riding a similar wavelength with our D.A.D.’s … yesterday she was talking about toast, today I’m talking about jam … more specifically, Traffic jam:

Traffic Jam

I have to admit that it’s a pretty accurate depiction of how I can get when I’m about to tuck into a yummy meal!
