What I've been up to

Hello there! I have been sick in bed for weeks and finally feel better!
It's so wonderful to feel good... We take it for granted at times.


I haven't been able to do much work but I did manage to update my website. I had way too may illustrations on my color portfolio and added a few new pieces too. I changed my book section as well.


I'm working on a postcard to send out and still working on my dummy.
I find that it's not so easy to work on my dummy. I've been changing my mind a lot lately regarding perspectives and compositions. Maybe it's because I'm so nervous about it? I don't know. 


I do know it's very different to illustrate our own words compared to someone else's for some reason. Think it has to do with the fact that there are endless possibilities coming all from one single head. ;o)


Hope you are all good, healthy and being creative!

You have been unwell? That shouldn't be allowed. I am so glad to hear you are feeling better now. Look after yourself.

Sorry to hear you've been unwell, I've had a crashed out day today, slept most of it? Good luck with the dummy, you are right about the illustrations being hard, too many wild creative thoughts to settle on just one to do! I'm sure it will turn out good! :)

Thank you Marsha! Glad you like the birdies. Those are the The Adventurous Flower book. They were a lot of fun to paint :o)


Hi Phyllis! Thank you, I am so happy about that too... hee hee. :o)


Aww you are sweet June. Feeling bad is the worst right? Hugs to you :o)


Thanks Julie, a crash out day sounds good. We all need some of those from time to time! :o)

So glad you're feeling better, Alicia! Being sick is no fun, but it sure makes us thankful when we feel good. I love this image of the birds. They are so pretty and work well with each other. I'm familiar with the dilemma of having too many ideas in one head, and I am not even doing what you're attempting. :o) I think you'll do just fine.

First, I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better, Ali. Being sick is no fun...

Great updates on your website. I do LOVE your website, you do amazing things with iWeb!

Good luck with your dummy! Don't stress too much about it. At this stage, change is what's all about.

Can't wait to hear more about it! :-)
