I was invited to discuss my book “Who’s in the Woods?” today at the Monticello Mom’s Group meeting. It was a great time. I knew all the mom’s from Storytimes and other programs at the Library so it was very relaxed and casual. Just how I like it!
Here’s my Mini Tree Submission for the MAAC 2nd Annual Mini Tree Festival.
“Buttoned Up” is a mixed media painting that includes a pastel tree, glitter (of course), and embellished buttons for ornaments. All crowned with an old broach that has always reminded me of a Christmas Star. You can’t see all the glitter in the picture but in person it is fabulously sparkly.
I was asked to provide Storytime sessions for the younger kids at the Monticello Elementary Reading Night on November 16th. I had a great time and saw a lot of familiar faces at the 3 sessions that evening. Plus they let me promote my new book “Who’s In the Woods?”
The final revisions are in and my first Children’s Book “Who’s in the Woods?” is currently available for sale directly from the printer (Lulu) and/or will be available on Amazon (possibly Barnes & Noble) within the next 6-8 weeks — of course I receive a larger % if you purchase directly from the printer 😉
I am so excited I can barely contain myself! It’s taken forever since I finished my Master’s degree to finish all the paintings from my Thesis Project into this first book and I’ve already started my second book “Who’s in the Forest?”; a book about a northern boreal forest covered in snow on Christmas Eve.
My cousin, Teri, posted this beautiful video on FB and I had to copy it into a watercolor. I tried the Chinese Pour Technique. I’ve been working on artwork for kids for so long that it’s a bit more fanciful than I was working for, yet I’m still enjoying it.
The Fu Dog Painting Class on January 18 was a great, mid-week break from the dreary winter rains. The students had a great time and several picked up ceramic Fu Dogs from Allerton House after the painting class.
I’m participating in the Square Art Monticello event this Friday, July 1 from 5-8pm on the square in Monticello. Stop by if you’re going to the First Friday Film or just in the downtown area.
