Illustration – Portable Magic

 

I have just returned from 1950’s England.

Tomorrow, Terry Pratchett and Stephen Briggs will visit.  I will giggle, laugh out loud, and be dazzled by their sheer brilliance of language while I clean my house. I created this illustration out of my love of great writers, and the brilliant narrators on the audio versions. In 1996 I became a devotee to the magic of audio books, and have continued racking up over 500 books each year. A talented writer and a masterful narrator can transport your entire imagination into whatever world you may be in need of. Free for the asking through your public library. Just download and play!

In a time when pandemic fatigue, anxiety, politics, and the economy is wearing out our hopefulness, escaping into a wonderful book can refresh your body, mind and soul.

Take a break, take a walk, take a friend in your backpack, on your kindle, phone, or in your ears. You will feel less isolated, less stress, learn amazing things, and feel as if many of the characters are your best friends.

Since I am always searching for intelligent, witty, clever and terrific books and series (I can get so attached….) please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Enjoy

and as always, thank you!

 

My Cover Girl – Celebrating Spring & Easter.

I giggled the entire time I created this, in celebration of spring and Easter.

Looking at her face, I just can’t help it. Spring is joyful, fresh, new, loving and hopeful.  It is an opportunity to witness the transformation in nature, and within ourselves. A time to celebrate surviving and thriving through the challenges of the past year.

I had so much fun with this that I have decided to make this my new “Play Project” in between paintings. Creating magazine covers using my own artwork with articles I would love to read. Then I will print and frame each cover, and line my home hallway with them. I will call it my Happy Hall

I think I’ll create a Rolling Stones cover next…..

Happy Spring, and Happy Easter to All.

– thank you.
