    I had the most fun opportunity to illustrate a children’s book for a college student – without giving everything away, I’m sure my illustrations are a big hint to the storyline!

    I started doodling late one night, refined my doodles into line drawings, then colored them in using colored pencil on a really smooth illustration paper – scanned them in and further enhanced them for print using Paint Shop Pro. I’m so tickled with the results, I just had to share.

    Which little fishy is your favorite?

    Here’s the final scan of these beautiful cats done in a sepia oil monochromatic. The color is really warm and rich, like milk chocolate in the sunlight. I’m late posting it – usually I post the scan before I mail the piece – this one is probably already halfway home. I’zza little excited for their mama to get the painting.

    I’ve finally got all of my painting scans pieced together and uploaded to my portfolio, so I thought I’d give you a quick rundown of what is on display with more quality images than the initial window display photo in my “Now on Exhibit” post.

    I posted the Great Blue Heron scan here in my blog because the image in my portfolio is really pretty small.

    Here are all the thumbs (linked to their painting details in my portfolio):

    I Love My Clients

    custom portrait sun conure client gift to artist
    I was just telling Katie’s mom when she picked up her baby girl’s portrait last month how I have the best clients, ever. It’s not just that they appreciate what I do and how I do it, but that they have the patience of Job and understanding when it comes to my creative bursts.

    And then, I receive a phone call from Titto’s mom. His portrait arrived, and she’s a very happy bird portrait owner. She mentioned sending me photos and I’ll also be painting Titto’s portrait again, and tears welled up in my eyes, because I’m a big mushy gushy head. I did not expect what landed on my doorstep yesterday. Not even a little.

    {{{huge hugs to Tittto’s mom & family}}}
    Photos of Titto in his full feathered glory, a wooden palette (I’ve been eyeballing these for months!) some really nice brushes, a tin of Coconut Patties (oh. my. YUM.), the most sweet smelling rose pink peppercorn Caldrea candle, and a hefty amount of Perlier honey and glycerin hand cream. Oh! And also! A blank 5×7 canvas panel for Titto’s next portrait! I feel so spoiled, really. (I love to be spoiled.) This is just so – wow. How sweet is this? I have received some precious, sentimental gifts from my clients before, and each time I am just so grateful that people can be so ding dang kind and giving.

    It’s nice to feel special. {{{Group hug}}}

    client custom portrait artist gifts
    Seriously, the best clients ever. Titto looks incredible both framed and unframed.

    If you’d like to “walk around”, click the pic for the (not narrated) video, walking up to the display and all that fun stuff you would get to do if you were HERE. (Update: I converted the thing to a windows media file and it’s much smaller and faster loading, sorry about that humongo file!) I’ll get back over there when the tags go up, in the evening, when there isn’t a funky glare from the street.

    These are all available for purchase, so if you’re interested in any of them you can contact me for pricing and I can give you the number to call MidCoast Fine Arts to purchase through the gallery.
