Illustration Friday - Messenger

A messenger of Spring to come....floating on Lake Merritt, here in Oakland.
Here's to sailing off into the new year full of optimism and enthusiasm.

Light in the Darkness

Happy Solstice, Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas, and Happy Kwanzaa to all my blog readers! And a very happy new year to you and yours!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Here is a silly ornament my son made in first grade at school...his school picture, made into an angel with doilies and a pipe cleaner halo. My husband loves to put this on the top of the tree. Especially poignant this year as that cute little guy is about to turn 18. What do you put on top of your Christmas tree?

Note: I did not do one bit of decorating this year. That visual director husband of mine did it all...while I typed!

Illustration Friday - Brigade

Brigade, well that's a tough one. No military action going on here...

I'm just hard at work writing papers for grad school, and trying to get in a little holiday shopping here and there.  Looking forward to a long chunk of artmaking time soon...

PS Sorry about those ads up there on the right, I'm trying to figure out how to edit that space... it so far is very complicated, so if you have any advice, bring it on!! (it's google adwords at the moment, but I may switch to something easier to edit, where I can suggest wonderful books for you).
