It's about time!

Yes I know that I haven't posted in over a year, but I have a good exuse.
I have been working hard on the three posts below AND I've been writing books.
How many books you ask?  Right now the number is at seven.  I've finished writing two
of those books but I'm working on illustrating them.  I hope to have at least 20 pieces of art in each book--if I get to use my own artwork.  It's taking all my free time and I'm starting to feel a little bit like a recluse.
I hope to soon have them published, and when I do, I will let you know.  Well, I need to go and get to work!

This last spring I was asked to paint a float for the state parade!
I was thrilled to do it and spent many hours working on it.
They asked me to paint the murals on the books.  There are three books
in this float... the large one... the one that the grandma is holding...
and the big one in the front.
Look below to see the next page.

These next few pictures were taken from my phone, so they're not very clear.

The page turns mechanically and out comes a town center.
It's prett cool to see the video.  Unfortunately the only video I got
of it turning is very blurry.  I was able to paint all four pages of the book.
The hardest part of it all was taking it apart and throwing it away... yes.. I had to throw it away.
There was no room for it anywhere. :(

Preschool Mural

This was a blast to paint.  I went to visit my brother and his family and
decided to paint their basement to get them ready for
teaching preschool.

I painted insects and bird along the fence and on the tree

I used lightweight spackle to make the trunk of
the tree textured for a 3D look.
See the grasshopper!
