Alligator & Friend

Here is a little bit of early Halloween for you.
Hope everyone is enjoying the nice fall weather!

I have a new computer and also some new software, so I'm trying to learn how to use it all.  It's all very fancy but I miss my old computer.  I knew how to work everything on it.  Oh, well.  
Take care everyone.

Sorry it has been so long since my last post.  I have been having the busiest summer in history.  For me anyway.  Five weddings and a funeral.  No kidding.  That may not be anything unusual for some people but holy cow, that is a lot for me.  I'm not even finished with all of them yet.  I still have two weddings to get through.  I guess it's nice that I'm getting invited to these shindigs but to be honest, I'm tired and I may be going broke, what with buying shower and wedding gifts galore.
This piece of artwork has been posted before but I thought it fit in with the theme this week for Illustration Friday.  Mysterious.  This is a watercolor illustration done on 140lb cold press windsor newton paper and paint.  I was told recently that I should be painting on hot press paper.  But, I find that I'm chasing my paint around all the time when I use a hot press.  What do you guys think.
