Gobble, gobble, gobble

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I am looking forward to time spent with my family. Our son will be home and our daughter and her husband are coming for a visit.  She is expecting her first baby in May, so we (my husband and I) are looking forward to being grandparents.

I have so much to be thankful for, I hope I always remember to count my blessings.
See you all in December!

Just because...

I just ordered more watercolor paper from my favorite place to order art supplies from, Dick Blick.

Dick Blick has always treated me well.

Even though I have been posting mostly cut paper illustrations of late.  I do still paint with my watercolors.  In fact, I just finished illustrating a book called Detective Punybutmighty written by Chari Partain and published by Red Heart Books out of Portland Oregon.  All the illustrations for Detective Punybutmighty are done in watercolor and ink.

Next up is an independent project by Gretchen Leary called The Quiet Bear also all done in watercolor.
I will let you all know when these two books will be available for purchase.

So anyway, I ordered more watercolor paper and the Dick Blick people asked me to enter a contest.  Which I promptly did.  The prize is $100.00 in art supplies.  Who wouldn't want that?  You have to post artwork that says something about what you are thankful for.  I am always thankful for a nice cup of tea with a friend.  So, here is what I submitted.
Hope I win!

One more !

I forgot to show this one.  So busy.  Isn't cut paper artwork fun?  I love it.
He's got a pretty big nose, but who cares?

Having a little fun

In between running back and forth to the hospital, ( my mom was sick. She is home and getting better, I hope.) I managed to sneak in a little fun.  I know it's too early for Christmas, but that's what I'm doing with my 20 minutes of free time.

These are two christmas cards done in cut paper.  These cards will be for sale at Gallery Calapooia in Albany, OR.

Gretchen, if you are reading this, please don't worry.  I'm almost finished with Detective Punybutmighty, and The Quiet Bear is next.  I promise!
