One of my intentions this year is to post more frequently to this blog. I've had family things come up, but I'm trying to get back with it now! This illustration is my winter mailing. It did take a while to finish it and because of that I'm now working on some different ways of painting faster. Being from the Deep South, we frequently had marshmallow roasts outside with rather nippy weather... which might seem odd to some, but was very commonplace for me growing up. I hope everyone had wonderful holidays, didn't eat too much, (but enjoyed yourself!) and have jumped into 2008.
