Whoooaa! Hold on there little mice! Oh the joys of miniature sized adventures.
Get Along Little Doggie
Sometimes a little cowpoke has to give their trusty steed a good ol’ fashioned poke to get moseying along. Happy Trails!
I’ll be the first to admit I am a member of the “Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve” club. Just like this little wolf and loving motherly owl. So I’m in good company!
Little Drummer Boy
A tribute to one of my all time favorite Christmas songs… May we always offer the best of ourselves, and that our gift would be received with warm hearts and gratitude.
“I played my drum for him
Pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for him
Pa rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum,
Rum pum pum pum
Then he smiled at me
Pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum”
-The Little Drummer Boy
The Pumpkin Patch
We’re officially rolling out of November into a new month, a colder, whiter one, but still just as lovely. Why hello there, December!
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
This event is always the official start to Thanksgiving morning and the holiday season! There’s nothing better than spending time with those you cherish most watching giant balloons, cheerful clowns, confectionery floats and ending with Mr. C. himself.
Macy’s, I do indeed BELIEVE!
Awkward Thanksgiving Dinners
This is going to be awkward… Fortunately for me, I love my Thanksgiving dinners! And there’s never any of that uncomfortable silence these two seem to be having.
Hansel & Gretel
Getting into that spooky, Halloween mood with this classic from the Brothers Grimm. They sure know their stuff when it comes to these types of stories, and I love them dearly for it!! Vegan Caramel Apples, here I come!
Of all the things in this painting that I love:
A ginormous witch with the most spindly, bony arms
& that expression on the gingerbread man’s face.
It’s enough to make an artist proud, for sure.
Here Comes the Circus watercolor on paper
The best kind of magic is the type we make ourselves.
Ice Cream Social
The fun keeps rolling when an elephant on a bicycle is serving up your favorite sweet treat!
It's hard to stay afloat after so many snacks and tropical punches (he's Bearly Floating as it is!) But this bear is doing it, and making a big splash into the holiday weekend!
He hopes you're enjoying the last bits of summer too!
"The Afternoon Safari"
A girl and her dog spending the afternoon in a safari hunt. With a little imagination, the houseplants become a jungle, and the family cat has no idea what he's in for.
Treats for Tricks watercolor on paper
Busy about new circus tricks, who needs a "Flea Circus" when you have your own beetle?
I See the Moon watercolor on paper
Stargazing is her favorite hobby.
Paper Moon watercolor on paper
'It is only a paper moon
Hanging over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me...' -Nat King Cole, It's Only a Paper Moon
Peter Pan: Book Cover & Interior Illustration watercolor on paper
This story, these characters, and this world have all been favorites of mine since I was a little girl. And so since I have been illustrating some of my favorite classic book covers recently, I thought I would pay tribute to J.M. Barrie's immortal tale as well.
“Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning! ”
Mother Goose: Little Bo Peep watercolor on paper
She may have lost them in the past, but this Little Bo Peep is full of gumption and confidence, and sure of herself; she's keeping a close eye on her flock. Friends stick together after all.
Friend Ship watercolor on paper
Even when sailing through stormy weather and rough waters, the Friend Ship holds fast and strong!
Bobby Brock watercolor on paper
This is Bobby Brock. He's a shy young badger, but he's also a wonderful friend, and he loves to cloud-paint.
James & the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl - Book Cover Tribute
What happens when you combine an orphaned boy, a spider, centepeed, inch-worm, lady bird, glow worm, grasshopper, and one oversized fruit? Genius.
This is another tribute book cover I did to one of my all time favorite adventures. James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl (originally published in 1961 by Alfred A. Knopf)
You can bet his wicked old aunts are up in that rickety house planning some kind of no-good and mean schemes. But for me, that round fruit full of typography left me suddenly wishing for bowls full of peaches and cream.
