Owl and Turtle

Hi all y’all!

This is the first painting I made for myself in probably 7 years. It is going to hang in the cabin at our camp in Mississippi.

Remember? I showed you photos of the camp last week.

owl-and-turtle-for-webI put all of my painting ideas on hold.

I think there might be a big project in my future. I am giving it all of my painting time.

Someone (who will remain nameless for now) asked me if I wanted to illustrate a children’s book that she has written. I am painting the first two pages and if she thinks my art works well with her words, it’s a go.

I will keep y’all in the loop.

Maggie and I are writing and illustrating a book, too. We have 3 pages so far. It is about a girl who lives in a swamp and has an alligator friend. We will finish this later. We like a long-term project. I figure the older she gets, the more help she will be.

I think the stories about why people buy my art are what keep me going in such a solitary job. A man messaged me on Etsy. He wanted to buy two prints of Accepting New Members because his daughter’s synchronized swim team is called Synchrogators. Cool.

What ever you are doing for Thanksgiving, I hope it is wonderful.

Hi all y’all!

Not exactly my 15 minutes of fame, but a welcome surprise. My niece, Maggie, from California texted me to say she saw Accepting New Members in Apartment Therapy. You will probably love Apartment Therapy if you don’t already.

Look on the wall!

Someone from New Orleans bought the original Accepting New Members a couple of weeks ago. They saw it at Where Y’ Art.
