Happy Christmas

I like re-purposing old post cards for art projects and there's a great antique store in North St. Paul that has racks of them.  With all the business leading up to Christmas, I haven't used this image yet, but I wanted to post it anyway.  Along with that I wanted to wish you a very merry Christmas!

New Cards

I had an order for a dozen cards and these are the last two (I apologize for the bad photography but hope you like the cards!)

The Boys

I met some very nice folks at Cranberry Fest in Hayward WI in October who commissioned me to draw their two dogs.  ("The Boys") I just completed it and hope to be framing this weekend.  Then back to more cards.  
I was at Cranberry Fest, sharing a booth with 4 other artists.  A great time, but REALLY cold!

Other Stuff

I finished these yesterday while my son was napping.  Cards are nice because I can actually finish a project while he's sleeping.  What am I going to do when he drops his morning nap? 

More For Christmas

I've been waiting for the "go ahead" on a commission so I've been making more enclosures and cards. I'm still in the Christmas spirit.  Hope you like!

Christmas Is Coming

 I love Christmas!  It's only October but I'm listening to Christmas carols, thinking about cookies and fudge and working on an order of gift enclosures.  Here are a few of my favorite. My friend Stephanie taught me how to make the Cardinal, and the Scottie and Snowman are my original cut paper designs.  (The papers and embellishments are from my favorite craft store.)

Art For Kids

Lately, I've been doing more pieces for kids.  I guess it's the result of having a 9 month old but gosh am I having fun. I'll upload the newest as soon as I get photos but here are 2 "older" favorites.

Como Photo

Here is one of my favorite photos.  I was at the Como Conservatory with my friend Stephanie and was lucky enough to get these two lovely fish in action.

First Post

I thought I'd put this on for my first post.  It's an older piece that I did for my publisher but I still like it.
