Illustration Friday: REMEMBER

Watercolor on paper
baked fresh for today's Illustration Friday.

Birds remember exactly where they've hidden
thousands of seeds each autumn and find their way back
to their stashes using the sun, stars, landmarks
and sometimes the magnetic pull of the earth
to guide them.

Have a beautiful weekend friends.

Wool Tote

My latest crafty endeavor is this wool/canvas tote.

It has two pockets inside,
one for my glasses and one for my wallet.
The inside is a thick linen like
cotton canvas.
Inspired by this fabulous tutorial by Super Eggplant

Front page!

More of my freelance work today.
I made this watercolor illustration for the Wilmington Star
and it landed on the cover of the sunday paper edition
and I couldn't be any happier :o)
I'm jumping up and down as a matter of fact!
Nicole Neuman did the awesome graphic design
and helped me so much with the idea for the illo.
It was a huge challenge for me to think outside my "cute little birdies and flowers" world...
but toghether we pulled it off! Thanks Nicole :o)

Illustration Friday: POLAR

An oldie...but a goody
(I've posted this before )This polar bear was part of our homeschool Christmas decorations.
It was created with cutout sandblasted 3M plastic self adhesive film,
that I drew directly on the window.
You can see the whole set of windows I created if ou click here.
I will be making a new illo for this week's theme later this weekend.
Have a beautiful day everyone!
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Live stump

More I tried using my white acrylic ink
on wood veneer and it worked really great.
I even applied some watercolor
like in the other kraft pieces and it also worked out fine.
I'll be doing some illos on veneer this week
and experiment some more.
I *heart* woodgrain.

Yep, that's me in my kindergarten uniform.
Since I was around three years old I already knew that drawing
was my most favorite thing to do in the whole world.
My mom just let me have this picture
that I hadn't seen in ages
...thanks mom :o)

A happy heart makes the face cheerful,
