This Italian/American celebration on Christmas Eve is commemorated in puzzle form. Digitally painted for Dashing Dan Puzzles.

I painted this for my husband and his family. Sadly, his brother Brian passed away in November. An avid fisherman, I chose his favorite pond as the background. The ripples in the water represent a bass he's hoping to catch.

I hope to be a life-long-learner. Attending classes via RISDCE. I've taken Children's Book Illustration twice, hoping to improve my skills. In this particular session we were encouraged to illustrate our choice of short story. I chose Aesop's Fable, The Fox & The Crow. Here's the cover, painted in Procreate.

I love to dabble with design and lettering in particular. Had fun coming up with this for the title page of Aesop's Fable, Fox & Crow for RISDCE class, Children's Book Illustration.
Continuing to learn new things with the goal of improving my children's book illustrations, I took another RISDCE class called, Creating Worlds, with James Frio. Great class for stretching me! Hoping to capture a misty Fall morning up in Vermont at Sleepy Hollow Farm. Chalk pastels in Procreate.

I've always loved trees and the idea of living in a tree house. I captured a bit of the wonder in this image for the class, RISDCE, Creating Worlds.
Once upon a time, we lived in a beautiful land called Austria. Not often enough we would visit this tiny village built at the base of a glacier. Austria is magical at Christmas time...all the lights turning the streets a wonderful, warm golden color. I did my best to capture this memory in a piece made for the RISDCE class, Creating Worlds with James Frio (excellent teacher, btw!)
Bailey has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I painted this for his momma.
