And a Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a Merry and Blessed Christmas. So are you ready for the New Year?

Yes, 2019- where all your hard work will finally pay off. For sure you are.

Take a big breath, organize your thoughts, dreams and plans and get to work. More hard work? Yes, but it will be so worth it.
It will be an exciting New Year.

Summer of Experimenting

It's hot.
It's raining buckets. I'm all alone with my new watercolors, brushes and stretched paper.

 When I'm not painting or drawing; I'm reading every middle grade I can find. And I just finished, THE GIRL THAT DRANK THE MOON by Kelly Barnhill. Highly recommended.

Time to take a breath

The love of my life passed away last November after a hard and difficult fight with Colon Cancer. Such a rough year. It has taken me time to adjust and to regain my footing. I look at everything different now.

I started a few projects, at first for therapy and as an escape. Some fell apart, but some have grown and nourished me.
So I'm back and slowly but surely I'll continue with my passion for children's art and literature.
Thanks for waiting.....
