These roses make me happy. I remember my dad loved roses and encouraged my mom to plant plenty of them all around the house. His favorite was Heart's Desire but I'm loving these Pink Jubilee roses.

These botanicals are so much fun to paint but I made the mistake of using student grade paper and it buckled a little.

Here is another speed painting in watercolor of a botanical with birds and fruit. This time little chickadees and grapes. What fun. I love the play of the colors: bright yellow next to blues and purples.

As I have finished the second Alphabet book and am working on the last edit, I noticed that I have quite a few illustrations for these books that would make fine stand-alone art pieces if I finished the background. So this one is the illustration I did for Kiigbo Kiigba with a jungle background. I really like how it turned out. I think I will enter it in the next art show and see if anyone else likes it.

Here it is. The end of the second alphabet book. Almost a full year in the process and I'm putting it together for publication on Lulu later this month. I'm really happy about it and already looking at the next book.

I really enjoyed this fairy tale. Which would you choose if you had to: trouble when you are young or trouble when you are old?

This is the fourth and last of the botanical paintings I did for my client. She was very happy with the results in the end. She sent me a Christmas present that was very sweet and unexpected. Some people are a joy to work for.
