Today my Mom is having surgery. I am sending lots of love and happy thoughts her way for a smooth recovery. She is an amazing person and the earth is a much better place with her in it.

Just Flowers or Flowers With Hearts?

I did this design recently for a Valentine card project. I've also decided to put it in my Etsy shop for sale as an art print. I just can't decide whether to keep the hearts in the design. Hmmm... not sure which is more appealing. Any thoughts?

Birds in Love

This design is, of course, all about love. I like to think birds love each other as much as we humans do. The weekend is here, so enjoy!

I am continuing my quest of reinterpreting country americana in an updated style with this little rooster collection. Roosters are such funny birds in the way they move as well as their showy feathers. It's no wonder they are such a popular icon in the decorative arts.

It's owl time again!

Just finished up this new owl for my Etsy shop, Pictorialboom. He is both stylish and wise. I am thinking of offering it in different color ways. Check out the print here.

Dogs in Winter Coats, Oh My!

Just finished up this illustration for the cover of a kid's magazine. It is for the December issue (as if you couldn't tell, huh.) I am pleased with the little birds eating all of the treats that are falling out of the bag one of the dogs is holding. Funny, right?

Fresh herbs

These herb designs are a couple of years old, but herbs are timeless, right? I explored several color directions and never could decide which one I prefered. Seeing the basil makes me want to go have some Thai food for lunch!

From the Sea

I did this artwork a year or so ago and just came across it again today.  Nautical styles are a mainstay in the giftware industry, so I am always working on how to do them in a trendy but classic way.  I am thinking of embarking on a new collection of these ocean icons soon, so stay tuned!

Summertime Fruit Designs!

In honor of the arrival of summer, here are some fresh looking citrus designs by yours truly.  The flavors of lemon and orange are just about my favorites.  Anything that has lemon in it is ok by me, especially sweets!  Now go enjoy some summer sun.
