Modern chick in the kitchen

Modern chick in the kitchen
This very modern chick was going to be on the cover of a cookbook,
but got axed at the last moment.
I might use it one day for a book I dream of making with my grandma's recipes.

Hola, Geninne:

¡Qué gracioso, un pájaro con teléfono móvil y delantal! Además, me encanta el tono alegre de tus acuarelas y que haya tantos libros.

¡Gracias por compartir tu talento!

Que pases un buen fin de semana.

I think this is my all time favorite drawing/painting.
This would look wonderful in the corner of a 4X6 recipe card, yes?

This one really knocked my socks off!! Good idea, changing the cupboard door to a bookshelf instead...makes me feel like perusing all those interesting looking titles. Love your brilliant colors.

So stinking cute! So how does that happen, do the publishers choose someone else or do they ask you to edit and adjust?

Geninne, I love these kitchen creatures. Would you sell a print of the sketches to me. I would love to have them both for my kitchen, just in black and white. You are so talented and to your eye for detail comes so much humour!
