Happy Holidays!

Hurray for the Holidays!  Being able to spend it with family and friends and take a little time off work sounds terrific to me right about now.  All the best to you during this festive season!

Wall Art for Kids With Oopsy Daisy

These paintings of mine have been featured on stretched canvas wall art for kids with Oopsy Daisy for years, but somehow I haven't taken the time to feature them here on my blog.  Oopsy Daisy makes all of their canvas art in their San Diego, California factory.  You can purchase any of my canvas art as well as nightlights here.

On The Farm Puzzle

This puzzle has been out on the market for a while now, but I thought I would share it.  It features some cute animal characters just hanging out on the farm.  Mudpuppy Press does such a terrific job of making quality products for kids.  You can buy it here.

Nocturnal Cat

Cats love to roam the night in their stealthy, but always adorable way.  I'm always amazed, being a dog owner, how quiet they are compared to my beagles.  They can sit and stare at something for ages without moving, as if they are in a trance.  Perhaps cats are deep thinking and philosophical animals.

Master Bedroom

The house we own was built in 1940 and has charming wood floors and great light being perched on a gentle hillside.  The master bedroom has these terrific corner windows with views of the bay and the city of San Francisco beyond.  What the room didn't have is color and we like color here at our house!  So, I designed a fabric for the headboard (which we made on a Sunday afternoon) on with the gray and citrus yellows and greens that we are so fond of.  We had purchased several vintage pieces of furniture with the intention of painting them lemon yellow.  We used a high gloss alkyd which was, to be honest, no fun at all but it looks terrific!  The china cabinet was transformed into a freestanding closet of sorts thanks to the mirror that replaced the glass in the doors.  The granite gray walls allow the furniture to take center stage and it works thanks to the light and clean power of the white duvet, ceiling, trim and chandelier.  We are giving this old house some new attitude with color, color and more color!

Scratch and Sniff Stickers

Peaceable Kingdom has introduced a line of scratch and sniff stickers that I illustrated and kids are going to love them!  They are packaged at retail in a colorful red display box containing 36 separate packs that sell for around $2.50 per box.  Each little pack contains 6 feet of 80 stickers in scents ranging from strawberry, chocolate, grape, banana, bubblegum, as well as pizza.  I love the terrific products that Peaceable Kingdom continues to produce.  Hopefully you will find them soon at a retailer near you!

I'm back to the blog!

Boy, have I been lazy about this blog lately!  I am doing new work constantly, but as I'm sure you understand, it's difficult to keep up with everything.  Thanks for hanging in there with me while I took a little break.

I thought I would post one of my recent designs.  Painted phrases are always popular and right now they seem to be everywhere again.  We all have favorite phrases that we use in our daily lives or some that bring back fond memories.  Do you have a favorite phrase?

The wisteria in our back garden burst forth with abundant blooms last week and is looking amazing today! When we moved here last year, this gorgeous vine was blocked from view by some huge juniper bushes.  We tore those nasty things out and now can see this from our new deck.  I am looking forward to planning and planting a newly redesigned back garden at some point in the near future.  Enjoy the beautiful spring weather and all of it's amazing color!

Update on Haute Look

In my previous post, I forgot to mention my wall art for sale at Haute Look was only featured on their site for a few days and is no longer available. The manufacturer is marketing them to other retail outlets, so we are hoping to see them elsewhere soon.

Lost Puppies Board Game

The new board game I illustrated for Peaceable Kingdom is now out in the marketplace! It is one of a new breed of board game for kids called a cooperative game. Instead of competing against one another, kids work together to reach a common goal. In the case of the "Lost Puppies" game, they have to get all of the lost puppies home before dark. It was a terrific project to be a part of. Peaceable Kingdom does such beautiful and well concepted products. You can find out more about the game here!
