Squirrel Sketch

Working on something new for Halloween, this is a bit from the sketch I just started. I love the weirdness of how ideas happen and look forward to seeing how the final piece will turn out.
I also posted this sketch at The Sketchables today. Happy sketching!

Hello! My kids have officialy been in school for 5 days now. I miss having them at home during the day, but they are enjoying school so far so that is pretty great. Ticking things off my to-do list is a good feeling: our new storm door has been installed and new window boxes are up (the house colors turned out great, btw!), the dogs have been to the vet, and I even scheduled a furnace tune-up. I have some book dummies out on submission right now so that is exciting, working on a new picture book manuscript that will eventually turn into a dummy, and revisiting a painting I started a while ago. Getting all of my duck, duck, gray ducks in a row is a very nice feeling.
p.s. I made my first meme this summer. It barely makes sense. Christopher Walken played The Continental on SNL. Knitting with the yarn in your left hand is the continental style, knitting with the yarn in your right hand is the english style. ha
