Framed!




Here is the watercolor portrait of my little strawbaby (from Halloween).  I didn't get the most fabulous photos of the painting because I forgot to take photos before there was glass over the top! Duh! So I couldn't light it properly without major glare. It is actually a bit more vivid in person, just like the subject =)

It is also my sample for a new listing on Etsy for watercolor portraits from photos. If you want to check it out www.archetypaltheatre.etsy.com.

Tearsheet

That's right. I'm making my move. I have always wanted to work as children's book illustrator. So badly, in fact, that it has been hard to decide when I felt ready to submit my work. But having a daughter has given me new inspiration and new story ideas, so I am going for it.
