I never posted the images and artwork from The Bové Sisters on Holiday art show we had at Pop Secret Gallery. An artshow with my sister inspired by one of our favorite things, traveling; places we've been to before or places we'd like to visit in the future, take a look :)
Finally adding some photos from vacationing in 2016. Sometimes we take "friend-cations" with our friends, and that means a much needed R&R as well as getting inspired and doing some painting! It's so important to appreciate traveling if you are able to do it. Here's a little visual diary of what our Cancun, Mexico trip looked like :)
Here's a post of MANY many drawings I've accumulated throughout last year and this year... I realize I use instagram MUCH more than this ancient blog... so here are some sketches I've been doing just for fun, or when an idea sparks... No matter where I am, if I'm traveling or working a lot, I try to do a personal drawing a week (which doesn't sound like much, but you can imagine sometimes we get during crunch time at the studio and one doesn't quite feel like drawing.) These pieces are all quite small, like 5"X5" all done in mixed media from: prisma markers, micron pens, ink & quill, and some just permanent markers and pens.
I was a vendor at DCON in the Pasadena. Got to meet some lovely people. I loved sharing a booth with my friend Samantha George. Below I'll show you a little snippet of what the booth looked like and what artwork I was selling.
I love bringing my paints to conventions to pass the time, and also share with other artists.
here's a closeup of the fashion bunny I made, ink and watercolors on paper

I made little greeting cards, and this one had a "celebration" theme.
I made little greeting cards, and this one had a "magical unicorn" theme.
I made little greeting cards, and this one had a "tropical vacation" theme.
Some designs I put on some tote bags, of my llama and sun designs.

And I made coasters too! These are so wonderful because they work with hot or cold beverages!
