Greetings! I am SO happy to report that I finished the last illustration for the book on Monday! It has been a little weird not working on it anymore, but I have a few things lined up to keep me busy. The fam and I went to the MN Landscape Arboretum this weekend in hopes if getting a half-way decent photo of me to use for my book bio. This was my favorite- what do you think?
We saw lovely flowers, of course! This shrub rose smelled fantastic.
These peonies were amazing. The blooms were enormous!
There is a great photo of my Grandfather with my Mom and Aunt as kids. They were at the beach, he had a kid balanced on each leg. This is our attempt at re-creating that moment...
The concept seemed easy enough,
my oldest kind-of figured it out,
AND THEN THE LITTLE ONE TRIED TO TAKE ME OUT!!!!! Ah, kids.... they are such a joy!
