This is a painting I just finished for our friends' darling baby girl (the little story goes counterclockwise from the bottom right corner). In other news: my wonderful husband has helped me paint the blue sky and green grass for mural number one, and I hope to get the design transferred to the walls this weekend. I am also making a coloring page for Cedric and the Dragon, a portrait of a darling two-year-old girl, and need to mail out my last two cards that sold on Ripple (thank you Shawn and Faith)! I am sure that I am forgetting something... Many thanks to all of you out there who take the time to stop by my little blog! I'll have a little more time when the kids go back to school, so stay tuned because I am planning my first giveaway! I'll give you a hint: It will be a signed copy of Cedric and the Dragon! ;)

Another Ripple

This dolphin is up for grabs today on Ripple (they have raised over $9K so far)! Amazing!!!
I believe these sea stars are still available, too! I have a few new things that I hope to post eventually... including sketches from a trip to the zoo and a new painting I did for my friends' baby! Hope you are all having a great weekend!

What About Cedric?

What About Bob? is one of my all-time favorite movies. Ever. It is so classic. I have probably watched it too many times to admit, and even have a picture of myself by Lake Winnipesaukee. To celebrate my very first book, these photos seem only fitting. I like to imagine Dr. Leo Marvin referring to it as "a groundbreaking new book" and Bob "baby-stepping" to it. There are two kinds of people in this world: those who like Neil Diamond, and those who don't...
Also pretty sure I would freeze up in an interview like Dr. Marvin did. Oh, here is a link to purchase your very own "Don't Hassle Me, I'm Local" t-shirt (I still need to order one)! Hope you are having a nice summer, even if you have to be tethered to the mast of the boat to go sailing! Ahoy!
p.s. just added some art to the imagekind website in case anyone would like to purchase a print of my artwork. There is a button on the left sidebar that says "BUY MY ARTWORK!" which is not the way I would phrase it exactly. I'd say something like "Take a peek and think about it. Thank you very much!"
