If you haven't seen this, watch..... it's very funny (at least to those who read, write, or illustrate children's books)

Illustration Friday - Time

Oh, how I wish it was Summer Time again. I can't wait until I can run around in shorts and t-shirt again, and smell all the beautiful flowers in my gardens. Ahhhh.

The Legend of the Selkies - Watercolor Wednesdays

Here is an image I've done for Watercolor Wednesday's month long prompt of The Legend of the Selkies. Here the little girl watches as the mysterious woman seems to converse with the seals. I'm going to draw some other scenes too... stay tuned....

Experiment ... To the Moon or Bust!

Experiment is the prompt this week for Watercolor Wednesdays.

Tommy wants more than anything to be rid of his pesky sister, Lucy. His experiment? First, send her dolls to the moon, and then bye-bye Lucy!

The Spotted Bunny Award

I was given the honor of being named the Illustrator of the Month for our Watercolor Wednesday critique group. I am so thrilled. (My banner now graces the Watercolor Wednesday site. :-) ) There are SOOOO many really amazing illustrators in our group, and to be given the coveted "Spotted Bunny Award" is really cool! So I'm now doing the "Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy" dance (and yes V, I'm absolutely doing the princess wave too!).

More Stories for Children

Here are some of the roughs for another story I'm working on for Stories for Children Magazine. I think these are going to turn out nicely .... fingers crossed. (Sorry about the scans, I had very light pencil.)

Winter Water

Here is the illustration that I did for an upcoming issue of Stories for Children Magazine.
