Auntie Faye’s Fudge, Gifts & Etc. – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor

This one was so fun!  They have already put in their order for postcards (yes, I do postcards and business cards) with their building on them.  Some of the businesses are making their Christmas Cards from the paintings, too.  They have asked me to Photoshop the sock monkey out for the postcards.  Bummer.

About Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln, the American president remembered as Honest Abe, is renowned for his strong leadership during the Civil War and for ending slavery in the United States. He was born in a Kentucky cabin in 1809. He taught himself law and passed the Illinois bar in 1837, the same year he first spoke out against slavery. The Southern states seceded in response to his election to the presidency in 1860. Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, mere days after General Robert E. Lee surrendered to end the war.

Hitched for Illustration Friday – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor and Sharpie

The word of the week for Illustration Friday is “Hitched”.  I didn’t use any photo references for this one.  I just went with the happy little picture I had in my head.  I had a great time with this one.  The whole time I worked on it, I was in “the zone”.  Ya know what I mean?

This is what it looked like before I added the sharpie.

Abe Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln is one of America’s greatest heroes because of his unique appeal. His is a remarkable story of the rise from humble beginnings to achieve the highest office in the land; then, a sudden and tragic death at a time when his country needed him most to complete the great task remaining before the nation. His distinctively human and humane personality and historical role as savior of the Union and emancipator of the slaves creates a legacy that endures. His eloquence of democracy, and his insistence that the Union was worth saving embody the ideals of self-government that all nations strive to achieve.

“We should be too big to take offense and too noble to give it.”
– Abraham Lincoln

Logo Design – Whole Hawg Day

A lot of what I do at Signs by Beth, LLC is logo design.  I have been doing Whole Hawg designs for many years.  It’s so fun for me!

I give them a lot of choices each year.  This little pig had swim fins and tennis shoes, too.  Right now I am working on a website logo for a gun company.  It’s really challenging, so I’ll go through a lot of designs before I end up with one that they (and I) will love.  I’ll share some of these designs  with you when I’m done.  :)

Have a great weekend!

Is anybody working on their self portrait  for Linda Halcomb’s End of Summer Challenge?  I have painted 3 little attempts and the public opinion is that they do NOT look like me at all.  I need to re-think this and maybe paint my foot.  :D
