Books Were Once Trees

Books Were Once Trees   8"x10"  Acrylic on paper

Every book was once a tall, mighty tree. Perhaps that's why this sweet squirrel (who is most likely named Sally) has found herself at home in their pages.

Visiting Artist

This weekend I went visiting my favorite shop, and was doing a bit of on-the-spot-painting. 

Here I am busy working away on a squirrel... I seem to be very engrossed in it.
The painting I'm working on in these photos will be finished to share with you shortly!
Stay tuned!

April Showers

April Showers   11"x14"  Acrylic on paper

All of the rain outside has inspired something inside.
Thus... a girl, a goose, and a green umbrella came to be.

Painted Eggs

My Mama and I were having a grand time painting and dyeing hard-boiled eggs these past few days.
It feels delightful to act like a child with little traditions.

Happy Easter my little rabbits!

Everything's Coming Up Roses

Everything's coming up roses (or at least the grass is showing), so glad spring has arrived! These little white beauties were a present that I have been enjoying for the last week. They brightened my spirit, as roses are my favorite flower.

Muffins have also been popping up lately. Pumpkin & Apple Muffins in pretty tartan liners.

I am looking forward to the loveliness of spring... 
and wishing a Happy Spring to you!

Red, or Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

Red, or Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf   11"x14"  Acrylic on paper

I have been a longtime fan of fairytales and especially the Brothers Grimm, so when I was approached by Draw a Dot to work on a collaboration project of 4 pieces from the Haute Couture S/S 2015, I knew that I wanted to dress classic fairytale characters in them.

I was asked to choose four dresses from the Haute Couture show, and illustrate them in my own interpretations. So the first is Brothers Grimm classic, Little Red Riding Hood, wearing a Christian Dior piece.

Mr. Big Bad Wolf is speaking to Red Riding Hood about a shortcut he knows to Grandmother's house. His intentions seem less than trustworthy. 

Happy Spring!

My Work on Display at Renaissance & Papyrus

I've mentioned in the past how much I adore this shop, but I just can't say enough about how wonderful it is! You feel inspired as soon as you cross the door's threshold.

I am just so excited about the new display the lovely gals who work there recently created.
I'm a huge fan of this type of collage arrangement.

So, thank you ladies!

In the Air, on the Ground

The four, feathered and furry friends, together at last

In the Air, on the Ground: Nell, Diggery, Mr. Tweet & Mrs. Tweet

Some fly in the air, some walk on the ground, but they are all friends.
I'm dubbing this little series "In the Air, on the Ground".

Stay tuned! Prints and originals will be hopping into the shop tomorrow afternoon!


Diggery   5"x7"  Acrylic on paper

Diggery Groundhog loves the farmer's turnips. There is no way a turnip can be prepared that Diggery will not wholly enjoy. If asked the best way to serve them however, he will most likely tell you mashed with a spot of butter and pepper.

As of the moment, he has put on his best bowler for a visit to Nell Hedgehog's house. The two of them meet every Tuesday and Thursday and play cribbage over brunch.

He is sorry to admit that Nell has bested him the last score of games.

Nell & Diggery   both 5"x7"  Acrylic on paper

And with that, this little fella finishes up this mini set.
I've fallen in love with this tiny series, although I'll admit Diggery has burrowed his way into my heart most of all.
