Just finished this commissioned illustration of Syrian funny man Duraid Lahham. My client wanted to honor the joyful past that is now lost in Syria. May feisty freedom of the creative spirit return soon.
I have been spending time in California hills, which inspired me to add more details to this tiny piece. When I'm in a wild environment I enjoy the feeling of being enveloped by the sparkle of natural life, so I added wildflowers to the sky. Added more people below to enjoy the scene.
I'm feeling pretty good after this past weekend. What wonderfully creative thinkers walked through my studio. Total high. Thanks for coming and chatting. I'm especially beaming about those of you who took my imagery home!
The above piece went to a new home last year, but it pretty much expresses the exuberance of the weekend. Rock on!
I am a visual person who draws and paints about life, viewing the world from a variety of perspectives. Since I have one foot in civilization and one foot in nature, and my head isn't afraid of deep caverns or dizzying heights, I end up in some pretty interesting places. ~ ~ ~

I have two blogs. Toldileigh.blogspot.com muses about the world through the lens of my art mind. The second blog, Maybeperhapsifyouwill.blogspot.com, is a bunch of nonsense I create by harvesting characters from my artwork and giving them dialogues.
