Remy, I love doing pet portraits using pastel pencils on pastel mat paper - a match made in heaven. I've been painting wildlife and birds using this medium also. I love the detail I can get with pastel pencils, ans pan pastels make a soft and beautiful backbground.
A Christmas Fable, I was honored to be trusted to illustrate this lovely Christmas story. The story was written by Joan Carter and read to her family every Christmas Eve. Her daughter and granddaughter decided to have the story published as a memorial to Joan. I did the watercolor and ink illustrations. The book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble on-line.
Wooden Disc Ornaments, Something new for this year's ornament inventory - 3 dimensional wooden disc ornaments. I paint and layer bass wood cutouts over 4" discs to create these ornaments. I did buy some ready made cutouts, but soon found that I could draw and cutout my own designs using my new Cricut machine. These are so much fun to create.
