Finished the show today. So many kids (especially some of the vendors' children) are pretty awesome. There was one parent (attending, not a vendor) I had during the show who walked up to my booth and told his son to look at the books. The kid swung his arms, slouched his shoulders forward, belly out, … Continue reading Christmas Show day 2
Another week done. I really, really, really can't believe we're nearing the end of this year so quickly. My son came home from college over the weekend. It's good to have him back; the house feels full again. I've been torturing him about branding/logos. We've been working mine over. He's currently told me to "go … Continue reading Progress – November 19, 2018

This is a new process for me - not something I have down as slick as publishing normal books. The epub version (which is why none … Continue reading Alert! The eggs are at play!
I finished my children's book. It's really amazing to think that this day is here. Here's one more page from the book: As you'll see below, this page also became the cover for the book. I haven't decided yet if I want this to be the actual cover or if it's just temporary. Decisions, decisions. … Continue reading Eggs at Play
It was Day 2 for Art in the Park in Twin Falls. I'm tired now, but it's a good tired. I think I'm a little sunburned too! Either that or it's the warm glow of meeting lots of people. I've written before about selling my ACEO's to kids, hoping to inspire future collectors. Well, let … Continue reading The Bright Spot
I completed this painting on the first day of the Thousand Springs Festival. A group of kids that came around as I started it and then again about the time I finished it. I loved watching the amazement on their faces. I enjoy it when kids get into art. One girl at Thousand Springs stopped … Continue reading The Final Frontier
