C is for Cat, Cockatoo and Coo Coo Clock

C is for Cat, Cockatoo, and Coo Coo Clock

I have had a lot of cat requests at shows. So of course I have returned to the letter C.
This time my cat Katie was be my source of inspiration.
So as you can see, I went overboard on the letter C.
C is not just for Cat, Cockatoo, and Coo Coo Clock, but chair, cherries and check pattern as well!

P is for Perfume

P is for Perfume
 
A while back I was inspired by a friend, who sells Mary Kay, to do a letter P as a perfume bottle.
Well as you can see, I finally got around to illustrating it. 
 
This one is for you, Carol!

Yellow Bird's Love Song, a Second Look



Yellow Bird's Love Song

Here is a new redo. Every now and then I take an early piece that seems tired, or in the case of the original below, did not have much selling appeal and take another stab at it. 


 I hope the make over will have a better response in the upcoming shows.

A is for Ark

A is for Ark

This one came to me out of the blue while doodling. 
A is for Ark and so much more! There are antelope, anteaters, alpaca, and armadillos all waiting to weigh anchor while under the arch of the rainbow while sailing in the aqua seas.

Second Glance

Count Your Blessings

I have been reviewing some of my artwork as of late and at times feel the need or inspired to go back and make some changes. Maybe it is color or sometimes there is just something missing for me. 

In this case, I change the wording, along with the color, pattern in the cup, and adding a few things such as the bird and ladybug. Oh and of course added a few extra flowers! Adding live interest comes from my years of living in greeting card world. Live interest such as the bird and ladybug seem to warm up the illustration for me. 


Maybe this is just like looking at a room and having the desire to freshen it up a bit by changing the wall color and rearranging the furniture. Anyway, as I worked on it, it made me think to count my own blessings and to be thankful.
