Well, I have had my computer back for several days and have been itching to do some painting on one of my many sketches that have been waiting. I had some graphic design jobs for friends to work on first. Finally I got a bit caught up and had time for fun. I have had high hopes for this scarecrow ever since I first sketched him a few weeks ago. I am not totally happy with the whole illustration yet, but I liked it enough to share it 'as is'. I am not sure if I will take the time to go back and finish it any more or go on for now to other sketches.
I love fall so much I can't stand it! I often feel tempted to move somewhere in the country where fall weather actually occurs earlier in the year. Here we are happy that the temps have dropped to the low 90's and sometimes even mid-80's. It's nearing the end of September and I am hoping for better weather soon. The sad thing is that I begin expecting the brisk fall air as soon as August and some years we don't get the first cool days until October and I recall the year I became a mom- it didn't get cool until a week before Thanksgiving. I am afraid if I moved somewhere for the better fall weather I would also get winters with endless snow. I don't know if a Louisiana girl like me can handle that!
Thanks for reading!
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a published illustrator working on getting better every day. My goal for my work is for it to be charming, bright and endearing. I share my ongoing work progress online because I welcome all the encouragement and feedback I can get as I try to improve my skills. I currently have a children's book project that I am nearing the end of.
