Crocs on Carpet Sit

'Crocs on Carpet Sit' pen and watercolor self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay of her feet in blue croc shoes resting on a red and blue oriental carpet. (Click to view same image larger.) I need a good Seuss-ian rhyme... anyone? Click on comments to leave your suggestions...

Sadly, the carpets were rolled up and put into storage as it was The Alexander Educational Center's last day at beautiful St. John's. When class starts up again in the fall, we'll be at our new digs on 6th Street in Berkeley.

Home with a Cold, in a Sea of Stripes (Final)

'Home with a Cold, in a Sea of Stripes (Final)' self-portrait in ink by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) I had a misguided idea that after doing this I'd be able to 'simply' layer color washes over it for full color, but after some failed exper-imentation on the side, I have decided to leave quite well enough alone.
