A Flower for Japan, & Illustration Friday - Stir

It has been so scary, heartbreaking, and emotional watching the effects of the earthquake, tsunami, and now nuclear leaks in Japan, it has stirred me to do something. Such a beautiful country that I hope to visit one day.

I'm selling prints of this camellia above, for $25. (archival ink, on roughly 8" x 10" watercolor paper, mailed to you.) All money goes to the Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, or other relief organization of your choice. Donate through paypal, email me 'proof' that you did it and your address (to, and this lovely print is yours!

What I'm up to at the moment...

I had fun playing around with these little guys. I think I need to more, they're so much fun to paint...maybe a whole line of them in a row. Or maybe they need a tree to sit on. I was trying out some new types of watercolor paper (don't like this one). I mostly use Arches 140 lb cold press, but I just tried Fabriano Ultra White, I think that's the name. It's whiter than the Arches....
I"m sort of feeling like playing hookey today, I mailed out 9 dummies in the last two weeks, phew, I always feel so relieved afterwards, it's so much work.  I usually treat myself to a cup of tea at Peet's across from the post office. Today I noticed a new cheese shop opened up right next door.
This could be dangerous.
