New Painting

Here is a little painting I just finished.   If you know me well, you know that I love the beach.  Love the  west coast beach, love the east coast beach.  Just give me a beach and I'm a happy girl.
This is called "Path to the Beach"  It's a watercolor created on 140 lb. cold press paper using windsor newton paint.  This painting is not large about 6x6 size.  It will be larger once it's framed.

Have a great day everyone!
Thanks for stopping by.

Book Cover Idea

Well, I have been working my little fingers to the bone.  Pretty much worked non-stop on this design so the author could have something to place on kickstarter.
If anyone is interested they can go to the link shown below.

So Gretchen Leary has written a really lovely story and wants me to illustrate it for her.  Lucky me! As I've stated in earlier posts I have been working on sketches and a dummy book layout.  But, for Gretchen to get going with her kickstarter  I needed to paint the cover of the book.  I'm sure this will change as we go along but for now it is the cover art.
This kickstarter thing is new to me, but very interesting.  So, stay tuned and I'll keep telling you about this amazing journey!

A Bit More Cut Paper

I just couldn't help myself.  Had to make a few more designs.  Having so much fun with cut paper and watercolor.  Is any body out there?  I wonder sometimes if anyone even see's my little blog.
Oh well, I enjoy it.

I took a little break from working on a lovely children's book to play with some cut paper Valentines.
