I like how diverse mushrooms are and therefore I have decided to dedicate November to study and illustrate them!

Sloth - Helen page

Title: Sloth
Artist: Helen page
Sloth for international sloth day (20th oct ) , I’m slow!

I love the personalities of these crazy creatures, so vulnerable to mans interference though.

Many become victims of abuse in tourism or illegal pet trade

Populations in South & Central America are declining as they struggle to adapt to living closer to people.

Inspired by @costaricaanimalrescuecenter_
Raising awareness
And also @slothconservation
who are working with locals to find sustainable solutions within the communities.
Such as sloth crossings aiding their travel above roads.

Check them out especially if you are planning a trip to see sloths.
Be a responsible tourist!

Monarch and Milkweed - Julie Peterson Shea

Title: Monarch and Milkweed
Artist: Julie Peterson Shea
Other Links: Artist Website
I grew up spending most of my long summer days outside. Catching butterflies, making dandelion chains, and playing in the sprinkler with my brothers. For me seeing butterflies brings back memories of my childhood. For the last few years, I have made a point of growing milkweed to attract Monarch butterflies, along with other plants that are favorites of other types of these beautiful insects. In this illustration, I experimented with using more and new colors.

Misty pines - Sofia Larsson

My Friends mom - Maria Gehrke

Title: My Friends mom
Artist: Maria Gehrke

As the start of a 100 portrait series, I decided to paint my lovely friend’s late mother who sadly passed just this month.
Although it is the first in my process of becoming better at portraits, I hope I still did her justice. I hope this can give my dear friend joy and some comfort in her grief. I hear her mom was the sweetest and most loving person you could ever meet.

I have spend more time on this than what I had planned for the portraits, but due to the importance I wanted to do a good job. I am hoping to get faster and more accurate with the 100 portrait challenge, which will definitely take much longer than 100 days.
