The three hooligans hoped that they had faded into the wallpaper, so that the girl would not see them.

Kernel of Hope

This week I had a few ideas for Illustration Friday's word of the week - kernel. I actually made five, but the other two were not worthy. These are all about a little kernel of hope for something just out of reach. I hope you enjoy!

A new business venture??

This is the cover of a recipe book I painted for a friend's bridal shower. 

It was a lot of fun to paint! The couple met in Boston, love to ski and fish, have a cat named Wakefield, are getting married down the Cape, and now live in London. There are lots of other fun, little details as well like the wedding date and their college logo aprons. 

Here's Heather with her new recipe book! Can't wait to make another one!!

Illustration Friday: Hitched

This week I have an anti-bullying story for Illustration Friday: 
How the Elephants Pants got Hitched

Once upon a time, there was an elephant whose pants just wouldn't stay up; he was very sad. 

The birdies in the neighborhood just laughed and laughed. Except for one. 

And that one birdie knew just how to make the elephant smile. 

The elephant simply needed his pants hitched

Moral of the story: 
Don't be a bully birdie,
Be a buddy birdie.
Otherwise you're just a bird brain!
