I am sooooo excited to see all of these together finally! I printed them a long time ago, but put off painting them because there was always something more pressing to do. I would like to make them into an artist book- we'll see if I can find the time.

It's snowing!

Here's the snowman again. Now he's skiing through a blizzard!

Thanks to Vickie and all of the artists of Steamboat Springs After School Action. Those are some beeeautiful flakes!

And thanks to my awesome friends Rebecca Gavney-Driscoll, Marsha Riti, and Penny Weber. Check out their websites, cause they're wonderful!

Here's my first attempt at scratchboard! It was lots of fun & I'll definitely try it again. The lovely Beth Krommes helped me out by telling me how to transfer a drawing- Thank You!

Together we drift
on our special sailing ship
through the blackest blackest black.

Great Snowflakes!

I've been getting some really great snowflakes to add to the skiing snowman picture! Thank you, thank you!!
There's still plenty of time to email me a snowflake. :-)

Let it Snow!

Let's make snow to celebrate the Winter Olympics!

I'm very happy that the children in Steamboat's after school program are going to help start off the first collaboration on my blog. They are going to draw snowflakes falling through the sky above this snowman. But we need even more snow!!

Can you draw,  paint, or cut a snowflake out of paper? They can be simple or fancy. Then scan or take a picture of your snowflake and email it to me by Friday Feb. 19th. I will include it in the picture. Let's make a blizzard!

Printing The Reading Tree

I had a lot of distractions this week, so it took me a while to finish this print. I'm going to paint it right now!

I had lots of fun with these two characters for the last Illustration Friday, so here they are again. This is when Mr. Combover meets the little orange kitty for the first time.
