Happy Family

This is my friend Ethan's cute family. I did this portrait for him to give to his wife as a surprise for Christmas. Ethan and I used to work together at the U of M in Small Animal Surgery. He is a great guy and a wonderful veterinary surgeon! I do have great news: my color palette piece is indeed going to grace the cover of the book! The accidental cover! I am going to re-paint it and extend the illustration on the left-hand side so the entire painting will wrap around to the back cover. So, this was really a great week (though I didn't get as much drawing in as I would have liked to). And there is a great MNSCBWI workshop tomorrow and then our CBIG party to follow, so I am really looking forward to seeing great art friends. I have found my people! Have a great weekend, everyone!
