I'm back...

Only one post in May...that's sad! I guess my excuse is that I've been swamped with work and then went on vacation. Here are a few pics from the cruise which ended up not being our best trip thus far. Our poor daughter got terribly sick on the third day and then was down for most of the remaining cruise. I think she was so worn down from her finals in college, etc. Oh well, I guess everyone needs a yucky vacation to appreciate the good ones.

Here's a pic from one of the night's our daughter actually felt good.

One of these days I might actually have some art to show. Everything I've been working on lately is under contract and I can't share anything here because of that. But soon, hopefully.

I really LOVE to create animals in my work but I'm finding that all the jobs I've been hired for lately don't have animals, just lots and lots of children and a few adults thrown in here and there.

My goal is to start working on some animal samples in my spare time. Ha! What's that?! But seriously, I really want to do more animal stories. Here are a couple animal pieces I did for Standard publishing way back in 2004. This was before I started experimenting with my acrylic style. These are digital watercolor.

and here's the cover for Lion Can Share

Here is another one that I created years ago just for fun.
