I've always liked owls and, of course, drawing owls is an pleasurable thing for me to do. This is good because I'm sketching characters and a making a dummy for a new picture book for Schwartz & Wade about an adventurous owl. "Owl Sees Owl" is written by Laura Godwin and will be published in 2016.

Imagined and Imaginary Birds


One white bird… 
One black bird…
…and never the twain shall meet. How sad.

A Good Dog

mixed media (watercolor, ink, crayon, collage, paint)
After being chased all day the moon was going home now. If the dog just waited a little bit longer, she would come to the door and not be able to resist his happy smile, moist eyes and wagging tail thumping on the stoop. Maybe she would give him a piece of cheese!
