Chilly hands, warm drinks and commissions.

I really love working in coffee shops. I really really do. But why are they so cold?? Even though it is 85 degrees outside (which feels SO much better than the last few weeks!) I am forced to get a warm coffee. Because my fingers literally feel like they are going to fall off. And as I sit here I am envious of the woman to my right, who seems to be able to drink her cold frappuccino in her off-the-shoulder  loose fitting summer top and read her nook while wearing flips flops

I sit here wearing a hoodie and yoga pants, drinking a searing hot soy latte, still freezing. 

But enough of my woes, here's two new pieces I was commissioned to do in this past week:

Jan, 5 x 7, watercolor and pen.

This first one was commissioned by my friend Claire for a sweet lady named Jan, who was retiring after 30(!) years working at McKendree College! I drew the McKendree chapel behind her (which is also where Claire got married! You might remember my drawing of her and her husband Zach).

Brian and Jen, 8 x 10, marker and pen

And this one was commissioned by my friend Jordyn for her friends, newlyweds Brian and Jen! They love eating pizza together, if you couldn't tell. ; )

Hope you are all having a wonderful evening..and that your hands are warm.
