5. Illustration Friday--"Renewal"


















This is my unimaginative interpretation of the IF topic "renewal". It's the new year--time to renew and refresh and send out promotional materials! I sent these cards out hoping for renewed interest in my work...or new interest...or any kind of interest...

10. Illustration Friday-"Impatience"















It's been too long since I've participated in IF. I had the perfect illustration for this week's topic so I thought that was a great excuse to jump back in!

My sister just had a baby so I'm making a Noah's Ark painting for his room. This sketch alone took me all day. I'm thinking the painting will be a looonnnnggg process.

15. Illustration Friday-"Wise"



















This illustration belongs to a series featuring this old man in the black and white shirt. Something about long, white beards says "wise" to me. He probably strokes it and says unfathomably deep things all day.

17. Illustration Friday-"Packed"













How many birds can one suitcase hold? They must have been packed in pretty tight...

This is an old one, but one of my favorites, and it fits the topic that incidentally I suggested :) Wish I had time for a new one this week, but it's not looking like that's going to happen!

22. Illustration Friday-"Enough"

















I'm not too happy with this one. I did it twice, once in acrylic and once in watercolor and now I'm sick of it. It just didn't turn out the way I had pictured it and it looks overworked. Oh well, live and learn.

24. Illustration Friday-"Foggy"














I just moved to San Francisco and it is frequently foggy in my neighborhood. I kind of like it but sometimes I wish the sun would hold it back for awhile. 

This illustration is of me making my epic journey from Texas to California. Except for in real life I was in the cab of a UHaul with my husband, 2 cats, and a Mexican Petunia. Traveling by umbrella would have been nice.

25. new stuff



I did these illustrations to round out my portfolio so not everything is trade book oriented. They're not going on my website, so if I don't post them here they may never see the light of day.
