The spectacularly beautiful illustrations of Swedish painter Carl Larsson (1853 - 1919).
My favorite collection of his illustrations is never far from my drawing table.

Tinkerbell : Peter Pan and Darling kids Coloring Pages


Because I have done both gallery work and illustration over the years, I end up with various different styles of work in my stacks. Here are a few random odds and ends I found recently:
A detail from a book illustration.
A gallery piece from a series I did in Italy.
A "mock portrait" I did just for fun of a friend of mine as a "Renaissance maiden".

I took this photo of a friend's boys playing in our playhouse last summer. I have kept it in a folder every since because it always sparks my imagination. You can just see them making up dreams and adventures in their minds.

Talk about inspiration! Go see caramelcaramelo blog for some incredible images from the Arts de l'Islam show at L'Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris. These horses (and the gorgeous calligraphy) are really inspiring me today. Thanks, Kenza!

Children playing ball, Le Marais, Paris.
It's funny to think that, when I took this picture, the seed of the idea of adopting a child of our own was just beginning to plant itself in our minds. I was not yet illustrating children, but I was already photographing them!
It's exciting, really...things have been picking up speed as we roll toward the opening of my shop. Yesterday, I viewed the proofs for my limited-edition prints. I had to wait an extra few days for them, since watercolor is hard to duplicate accurately in a print. But the print shop I use is the best in town for artwork, and in the end they did a masterful job. I was terribly impressed. The prints are gorgeous. The Hahnemuhle watercolor paper is velvety and rich, and gives the images the quality of heavy cream.
With the proofs approved and the printing begun, the image captures ready, and the shipping materials on the way, I am thrillingly close to being able to open my virtual doors!

A couple of days ago, this hand-carved rubber stamp arrived - just one of the little details for the packaging.
Isn't it lovely? I love homespun craftsmanship and one-of-a-kind things - so much better than the mass-produced! This one was made to my request by Etsy seller brownpigeon, and I just love it.
