Doves & Grapes

Doves & Grapes, watercolor & graphite on Rives BFK, 11 x 11", 2013.

My housemate, Sara, recently got married, and I made a drawing as a wedding gift.

I was inspired my Audubon's paintings in The Birds of America. I own a huge copy; it's one of the best gifts I've ever received. I was also inspired by looking out my window; it overlooks a courtyard full of grapevines.

Here's a look with the frame and lettering:

I hope everyone's enjoying their summer. There's been a lot of hot weather and thunderstorms here!


  1. That's a beautiful illustration and such a great idea for a gift!

  2. I bet they love it, it's beautiful! I especially like that you used variations of just three colours; it holds it together so well :)


Comments make me smile!
