Something I read that makes me laugh.
Something I see that makes me cry.
A story I hear that won't leave my brain.
A child sitting on a swing alone.
A mom kissing the head of her baby at the doctor's office.
Sidewalk chalk...yes, sidewalk chalk! I LOVE IT!
This little gal was born on my driveway today...my 4 year old calls her "Emma-yee."
And this is her evolution...
The curly-headed girlie in the bottom left and the wrapped-up-squirrel were things I drew BEFORE the sidewalk chalk, then "Emma-yee" came. I had to beg my little guy NOT to hose her off the driveway before I oculd grab the camera. I knew I would ache to draw her later.
And I did. She's not done...none of these are.
Oh, and the "GIRLFRIENDS" design was something I did for a magazine that needed a frame for an article I was writing about the 'gift of girlfriends.' But I thought "Curly" and "Emma-yee" would be good friends so that's why my portfolio is opened to that page.
The squirrel is a character I am working on for a new book project.
Thanks for looking!
