Illustration Friday-- Dusty

On a snowy day like today, maybe I'll dust off the old sewing machine!  Nah, I'll probably paint instead!

  1. I'm with you Krista, the thought of having to get everything out and set it up is enough to put me off these days. Plus, painting is so much more fun ;)

  2. I used to sew when my kids were babies. For some reason, I could keep the sewing machine out and it worked. I made a lot of quilts. Now though, I can leave the paints and ink and all that out, as long as the dog stays off my art table.

    Lovely alphabet!

  8. You know, your creations are so uplifting. Have you ever thought of designing a baby book, or a journal?

  9. This is just fantastic! Have you ever thought of licensing your work to a jigsaw puzzle maker. This would be a fantastic 1000 piece puzzle. Even if you aren't in that frame of mind, I just love this painting and really wish it was a quilt!
