FROM THE SKETCHBOOK

Ugg Australia

Happy Thursday, Everyone! I was flipping through some of my full-to-the-brim sketchbooks last night and I came across these Uggs which I painted a few months back. I normally set out to paint couture fashion–from fancy heels to flowing gowns but since these Uggs were also a lot of fun to paint, I wanted to show them a little love by posting them today.  It’s hard to imagine needing boots like these now that I live in sunny California but these boots got me through numerous freezing cold winters on the east coast back in college.

PURPLE GOWN

Gown

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I spent mine enjoying the beautiful summer weather outdoors–biking on venice beach with my fiance and testing out new running routes around our new neighborhood.  I also found some time to relax and paint.  I actually set out to paint a dream wedding gown but I came up with this purple gown instead.  As I painted, I couldn’t help but layer on a bunch of color.  I also ended up adding Swarovski crystals to the bottom of the gown to add even more pops of color.
