Map of Stony Brook School Campus (published work)

@ Letizia Morley 

This is a watercolor painting map I did for The Stony Brook School’s magazine. This is a beautiful independent school on Long Island, NY for grades 7-12, boarding and day. The magazine was featuring the trees planted on the campus and I was asked to paint a map that showcased the greenery in addition to the buildings.

In an alternate publication, this is my map printed in the arboretum walking trail guide with just descriptions of the trees. Interesting how the colors came out differently on this one.   Continue reading

“Fighting like Cats and Dogs” (one panel comic)

IMG_0712

By Letizia Morley

For those of you who have kids, as I do, you will relate to this simple black and white comic. For some reason, my two kids just CANNOT get along lately. They are 5 years apart and different genders so you’d think this would not be a problem. In this illustration, the cat is my daughter and the dog is my son. I got a big laugh out of drawing this, but then got back to yelling at them to stop making so much noise. It’s this being stuck inside the house too long that is to blame, right? I really wonder what the neighbors think.

“Waiting for the Ballet Class to Begin” (oil on panel)

My all-time favorite painting, of my daughter at her 5 year olds’ ballet class. I like the way the late afternoon sunlight gleams over the wood floors and glows on the pink tutus. My favorite aspect of the painting is the distinct personalities of the girls conveyed by their postures. I don’t think any of them was too excited to be there and you can tell. Parents don’t get to observe the class except twice a year so on this rare occasion I took many photos to use as references for my painting.

I didn’t set out to do a painting inspired by Degas’ famous ballerina paintings but it ended up seeming that way.

Note: the painting is signed “DeLorme” since that is my maiden name and also my pseudonym for some of my oil paintings.  Continue reading

A Student’s Prayer by St. Thomas Aquinas, illuminated calligraphy

From the archives, an early illuminated calligraphy work I did for my husband. He asked me to do this as a decoration for his classroom. The font, or script, is called Fraktur Miniscule, in use from about 1400 onward and very popular for vernacular works at the time. I used a Celtic Knotwork tutorial book to do the border. I used felt-tip pens instead of paint.

Plasma Ball at Camera Obscura, ‘World of Illusions’, Edinburgh (photograph)

We visited the Camera Obscura in Edinburgh recently and really enjoyed all of the exhibits. If you like optical illusions, fascinating inventions, mazes, puzzles, and the like, you’d have a good time. I even got a pretty good shock from someone touching a plasma tube and touching me at the same time! Continue reading
