Here is a crop of another piece I did for the #lightgreyartlab #Iceland Residency exhibition! I decided to make a pair of patterns about the Icelandic foliage and how lush it is. This one is a drawing of what I think of when I think of the month of August there– bright greens, a mixture of different plants and mosses together. Take a look at the LGAL shop to see the full piece here: http://shop.lightgreyartlab.com/product/august-by-lindsay-nohl
Little #Iceland trolls, stranded out at sea when the sun comes up. Wip ink paintings for the upcoming iceland show at #lightgreyartlab. Got some amazing new inks today after a trip to Midwest Mountaineering. It just reminded me how much I want to explore.
Finished the little bird I drew the other day. I’ve been working on and off on this guy for the demo I did at MCAD for the pen and ink project in the class I teach. Usually at night when I am watching documentaries about math or whales or something. Ugh it’s been a long time since I’ve gotten off the computer and done a piece by hand. But wow does it feel good.

One of my patches for @lightgreyartlab’s #PatchesandStitches show! “Bad Moon” is one of a kind on cotton canvas with fabric dye and embroidery floss. Thinking back to my punk days with fond memories. Check out all of the awesome work on shop.lightgreyartlab.com if you have a second! The show is beautiful!!
Ah, what an incredible night!! Thank you to all the kind people that said hello to me at the #Cosmos opening reception @lightgreyartlab! We had a blast giving star tours, lighting up the night and storytelling with everyone! Here is my piece, Mensa, or “table mountain”. I really had a blast working on everything throughout this project and was so happy to see it come to life tonight! Anyway, it’s late and I’m sleepy, but I’m so, so happy! Thanks again you guys!

More flowers in ye olde #sketchbook from a day or two ago! Wish I had more time in the day! I’ve been spending the last chunk of days writing in my free time to finish up a very important #lightgreyartlab project –which is fun, don’t get me wrong– but right now I’m wishing I had time to just mess with these inks! Agh, some day!
Little gouache butterfly studies. Made them a day or so ago to bring to class tonight. We messed around with gouache for a while today and—aaaaghhhh–I love that class! Everyone is so much fun! Teaching is amazing.
Sharing a process sketch for my #lightgreyartlab #cosmos piece. The constellation Mensa is named after Table Mountain in South Africa. It is said that the mountain pulls unsuspecting ships to their doom… Yikes! Im not surprised! Don’t all mountains lead people to their doom? 😬😰 besides that…! I’m really looking forward to the show this September!
More progress from the other day. Bluejay #painting getting closer! Got little bits of time here and there to make a bit more progress. Tomorrow I have some time out in the garden to get my fall plants ready. It all feels like a fall-ish thing to do. Painting, planting, whatever.
Tiny series of troll #paintings for @lightgreyartlab’s #Iceland Residency show! Originals available at shop.lightgreyartlab.com :) Each one of these paintings shows a troll that got stuck out at sea when the sun came up! This is one of the many legends I love about the awesome formations off the coasts of Iceland!
