Yep, that time again

Postcard mailing time. I finished my postcard for this quarter. It always feels like an achievement. Hopefully, it will bring good luck with this New Year!!

Get well soon Carol!

My dear friend's mom is in the hospital right now. This is the Get Well Soon card I made for her. I hope it cheers her up a little.

We're routing for you Carol! Get well soon!!

Winter in Color

Wow! I actually got all the painting done in one day! So, here they are ...

I haven't had a chance to paint them yet, but these are the B&W's of the little series I did for winter. I'll try to get the painting done in the next few days.

Patterns experiment

OK, after Jim's advice, I deleted the patterned floor and added my own. I think it looks better. I also added some shadows on the floor that I forgot to add in before.

I'm illustrating a story for January's Stories for Children mag about a dog who steals Casey's bed.

I was playing with backgrounds. What do you think? I'm not sure that I like it. I don't know if I'm just not used to it, or if it really does look off. I'm also including the scan without the backgrounds. Should I just paint a light wash background instead?

Any advice is welcome!!

Coloring Sheet

I was recruited by my youngest daughter's Kindergarten teacher to do a coloring sheet for the kids. So, not wanting to leave out my eldest daughter, I did one with numbers, and one without.

I never did a color by number before, but I think it turned out ... not half bad. :) Feel free to print out to share with your kids!

Now ... must enjoy the snow day we have!!

Warm Fuzzies

I'm really happy with the way the rebus I illustrated for the Dec issue of SFC turned out. It was entitled "Warm Fuzzies" by G.R. LeBlanc. I even received a thank you email from the author. Cool!!

The Mixed-Up Platypus - Stories for Children

Here's a quick little illo for an article on Platypi (?), well you know what I mean. I'm working on another illo for the January issue too, but this one was pretty quick and straight forward.
