Looking forward to signing copies of this lovely book at tomorrow's book signing party. I can scarcely believe this has been out for over a week now!!
Apple Dog 11"x14" watercolor on paper
A painting I did of my brother and his sweet black dog Molly- her favorite treats are apples. This is precisely how I wanted to capture them forever, singing to one another, and sharing in one of their famous adventures.
Just a corner of a surprise I made for my brother, featuring his dog and our loyal friend Molly.
The Kindergardener Snake 8.5"x11" watercolor on paper
Here it is! The finished illustration I painted and designed for a guide on the Python computer programming language written by Mike Driscoll.
Since the subject of the project revolved around a vintage school house, mice, and a friendly snake, I titled the finished piece: The Kindergardener Snake. I had so much fun creating this little school house scene for a book on learning and teaching yourself a modern language!
Almost done with this project, and I am very much loving the mice! I'll be posting the finished illustration for this fun book cover tomorrow!
You're the Apple of My Eye 11"x14" watercolor on paper
This happy trio has spent the afternoon in the apple orchard, picking apples, reading, taking the occasional photograph, and (as the evidence of blankets and baskets would suggest) enjoying a hearty picnic lunch. There really is no sweeter way to pass a day than this.
On this cold and wintery January day, I am most certainly with them in my heart of hearts.
The beginnings of things.
Also, my thoughts are officially on spring now thanks to this fun little picnic taking place.
Happy wishes being made on the last dandelion of autumn. This was just the best of autumns, and I am wishing for the autumns to come to be just like this years.
Getting ready for the holiday where we are thankful. Thankful for friends and family. Of course, there's always reason to give thanks when making a new friend like these two little critters.
I personally am enjoying these many feeling-thankful-thoughts. Hope you are getting the chance to spend some time counting your blessings this week too.
Happy to announce that I am now being represented by Tugeau2 Children's Illustration Agency!! Excited for the many adventures ahead of me in the enchanting world of children's publishing!
Here's a new illustration for the occasion!
