Good morning all.  Home sick today with my son.
Thought a "thinking of you" image was appropriate.
Getting ready for the holidays and ready to jump on the
crazy train for the next 2 months.  Before we know it
we will be waking up for Christmas Morning...
Have a wonderful day all!

As fall approaches...

As fall approaches, we reset our inner clocks to a darker morning and shorter days....I love the crisp air and the cooler nights.  The pumpkins are everywhere!  Gourds, ghouls and gobblins....So much fun!  Have created some new designs for fall...Here is one, Rue de la Cite' card...Enjoy and happy fall.

Got any grapes?

Got any grapes?  No just lemonade.  It's good and it's fresh and just homemade...Summer camps are so great for kids.  It broadens their learning experience and allows them to be creative in so many ways.  This is Caroline in camp.  If we could all go away to camp for awhile...

My little caterpillars.  Stay tuned for the butterflies....

From Caterpillars to Butterflies....

Under the Sea

"What a world to discover down here." said Alina 
Miles and miles of endless sea creatures
All kinds of sea plants and shells that have not
yet traveled to the surface.
"I could stay down here forever!  Alina thought.
Do you think anyone would notice that I was gone?"

A new illustration created during the blizzard of 2010.
Wishing I was somewhere else...

Flying at the Speed of a Butterfly

Greetings all!  New work in progress.  All of my figures are three dimensional on acrylic surface.  I use ink, colored pencil and acrylics.

Gabrielle flew high that day.
High above the flowers and the bugs.
Dragonflies called out her name...
"Gabby, come fly with us.  We know
all the great hiding places."
Her new wings served her well.
Madame Butterfly gave them to her.
"A special gift for a special friend!"

This piece is almost complete!  Stay tuned.
