Introducing another new character…

I have to honestly say that my children are my biggest inspiration when it comes to the compositions and characters that I am starting to string together. My I truly have a gerber baby boy and a Shirley Temple baby girl. They are just art waiting to happen! I love my little girl characters that are making their way to the front of the stage. Thanks to my daughter, they are full of cuteness. But Don’t you just love baby boys??? My son is as gerber as they get, and this picture of him depicts (to me) so much of little boys this age. Full of innocence and open wonder. You will be seeing this character soon with my elephants. I can’t wait!

Simple Simon

Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair
Said Simple Simon to the Pie man, “May I taste your ware?”

This is rough draft, but what do you think? It is “rough” meaning, there are some lines I need to fix, and some painting to touch up. I am liking the composition though. This is the beginning of my nursery rhyme collection.

elephants and rabbits

There are elephants coming out of my brain. More elephants, and they are starting to turn into one. Elephants and Bunnies. I love drawing both. There is an innocence to them that I can’t explain, only draw. These are some black and white drawings that I will either leave as is, photoshop with some color, or put into a painting. We’ll see where they will go. I like this idea of the adventures of an elephant and bunny…as pals…as best friends. I guess I will have to name them soon. I will have to extract more out of my brain before I get there.

A day of firsts…

1. Addie wore underwear (“under-go-wear” she calls them) for the first time today. Key word: Wore. 2 accidents…one in her crib during a time out, and one…well, I am not sure we ever really found it.

2. Ian kissed me on the lips for the first time. His initiation. I love him!

3. First day of my second cleanse. I feel great.

4. Kenneth went back to work today, all day, for the first time since his surgery. (i.e. first time with the kids all day by myself)

some scratched down ideas…


a study for a painting I want to do. I love the idea of the happy elephant in the rain.
This will either be “rain rain go away” or “it’s raining it’s pouring…”

I am painting again…

I see the Moon, and the moon sees me
God bless the moon, and God bless me.

A draft with acrylic and pen on wood. I am on a Quest to find my style. I have to remember that exploring is fun. I often get too ahead of myself. But creating art for kids is a good reminder. Kids explore, and so can I!
