Gorgeous. You never cease to amaze. (However, I'm still doubtful that spring has arrived on this end of the planet....there was frost out in the morning! So sick of it!!)
Amy- I'm jealous of your talent! There, I said it.
This is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
how perfect for me today...its raining outside and the a/c is on at the office...i'm shivering, but smiling while enjoying your lovely picture. great job!
Wonderful illo! Love your techmique!
beautiful. Its no wonder you are one of my absolute favorite illustrators... ever!
@Jennette FROST!! no jinxing! It is Spring with cherry blossoms and the works. BTW if the little girl on the left bares a small resemblance to your O then what can I say -she is a cutie.@Jamiewell thanks. I have devoted some time this year to learning how to knit- to sort of help me relax. HAH! I really want to be a legendary knitter- how do YOU DO IT!!!!!!
@Annalisaoverdoing the a/c- brrrrrrr. that sounds criminal.
CANDACE!!!!! you just made my day! :)
ha ha glad I could make your day. Its not a lie though. I look at your books for inspiration and study the way that you do your characters. Its not that I want to copy, I just feel like your work is a great reference for learning how to repeat characters. I always want to render every little detail... instead I look to the way that you capture the essence of characters and make them so believable that they are almost breathing.
Candace, I do that too! Though I am flattered you are looking at me! I always have paint splattered volumes laying around everywhere. I sneak into my kids rooms and steal their books too. Ha-ha. I am a magpie-amy
