A Beauty

I am Bee-yoo-ti-ful!

Working on my portfolio for the SCBWI annual conference.

Rainbow playground mural

 More kid mural action.  Rainbow playground....Spent the two week break, touching up, adding some new stuff and putting sunscreen on all the pre-school murals at both Sunnyside's.  Outdoor murals need to be protected against the elements.  I highly recommend Nova Paint for any outdoor work.

William Powhida- FROM MEMORY

William Powhida

I went to the Kohler Art Centerr in Wisconsin on our trip back to the Midwest, the exhibit was all about memory.  I encourage you to read more about my experiences and the exhibit here at my blog about Alzheimer's

But, this is my art blog and I want to  post my response to William Powhida's interactive piece which encouraged us, the general public to draw from memory or imagination someone we have never met.  When I go back to Wisconsin, I always feel a little melancholy.  I look out at the lake, and wonder how, where, when, why and will I ever meet my birth family.  I was born by the lake, and she must of looked out at the water the same way I do. I drew these.

New Mural Umbrella Idea

Splashy rain can be fun, choose your umbrella and boots.  Gidget inspired me to add the faces, like she did on her drawing.  What do you think, better with more space around them so that you can actually figure out that they are umbrellas, or with tiny rainboots sticking out underneath?  Please comment!
