easy does it

There is always something appealing about a home that has an “easy does it” sort of look. This lovely and easy on the eyes home belongs to this fine and patriotic gentleman. I am always impressed with the ease and the elegance of the life that this blogger is dedicated to living. When he is not creating an elegant dinner for company, or popping champagne with a saber, he is somehow concocting lively and sporty ensembles for a sultry Summer day. When he posted his cool “Manse” – somehow I could hardly resist in an “easy does it” sort of illustration. I am working on making things easier on me. Somehow there is something altogether elegant about just giving into an agreeable and easy life.
How about you, what are you doing to give yourself an “easy does it” √Član?

happy fourth


Wishing each of you a Happy 4th of July. May your weekend be full of fireworks, family, friends, flowers, floppy hats, flirty sundresses, flip-flops and fireflies. Be back Monday!

happy sneaky sketch


happy sneaky sketch artist at work

While I was at the sketch night, I was fascinated by those around me, lost, deep in their thought, or the act of capturing the live model. I turned to my left and there was this young man looking so determined to sketch, to get it all down on paper. It was his bright taxi cab yellow tee-shirt and red hi-tops that caught my eye – and the slouch of his body gave off a casual air.
I snuck this sketch in which made me happy today. Do you enjoy observing those around you and getting a sneaky peak?

happy sketch night

pve design sketches from sketch night at the SOCIETY OF ILLUSTRATORS
I went here last night. My sketch book needed to get happy.
Three hours of sketching, live music and models.
If my sketchbook were any happier, it would scream.
Thanks to this artful gal for giving me the heads up.
How do you make time for happy hours for you?

happy as a clam

How happy as a clam would you be to spend an evening here, sharing New England Clam Chowder and happy conversation? I have always loved homes that are the perfect shade of buttery yellow. What color makes your home happy as a clam?

happily ever after


pve design illustration – june wedding

June is almost over. This is a month that traditionally is full of love and marriage. This illustration was created for a wedding that took place on an island. With love and marriage there is no one person that can attain this by themselves. It takes two to create a strong and passionate love. Tell me, what is the one thing that you are committed to that helps you to live and to love happily ever after?

Sunny Sunday

This sunny spot belongs to this sunny gal over here. Something about it, made me want to draw it and now I just imagine having my coffee or tea sitting out there on a sunny Sunday laughing at something silly.
I got lost in the border and enjoyed myself immensely. Wishing you a sunny Sunday wherever you may be.
