Tis the Season

It's so cold outside.  My poor feet are freezing!  Maybe I need new shoes.  That's an idea I can get behind.
Well, since it's so cold, or at least it feels cold to me.  I thought I would post a bit of holiday cheer. I think his feet look nice and toasty in those fancy boots.
Enjoy the weekend everyone!

Busy Girl

I finished all my paintings for the 4th Annual Melissa Saylor Holiday Show!  50 paintings!  Bam!  The show will be at a lovely restaurant in Albany called Sybaris.
Now I just have to name them come up with a price list and hang the show on Saturday.  I have been a very busy girl.  Just sayin.

For those of you who know me well, you know that my printer/scanner has been giving me fits. I have been talking, complaining and just plain screaming about it.  I'm normally a very calm person.  But, this machine has really tried my patience.  Well, this morning I came into my studio, talked nicely to my printer and tried for the 4000th time to scan a new illustration, and it worked!?!?  I shall not question why, but enjoy the little miracle taking place in my studio.  So, here is an illustration I recently finished for Illustration Friday.  This topic was a few weeks ago I think. Guess I better get all the work done that I can while the printer angels are smiling down on me.

Moving Forward

I've been working on an illustration for the banner on Illustration Wednesdays, in which I take part.  As I've been drawing I've been thinking about this past week.  A week full of family and food and sadly a bit of sadness.  My Aunt June passed away on November 16. Her funeral took place this past Saturday.   I will miss her.  She was fun and creative and gentle.  Well, she was a lot of things.  But, mostly she was a wonderful human being who lived on this earth and and while she was here she made it a better place.  Thank you Aunt June.

So Cathy, Barb, Bob, Amy, Davey, David, Jaden, and Jazmine, if you are reading this. This one is for you.  xx missy
