Soaking In The Sun & Ladybugs

It's quite a warm week here but beautiful in every way. The Spring/Summer flowers are really blossoming in the various gardens we're surrounded by in our neighborhood. Michael and I have been making an effort to walk (at least) and hour every single day, sometimes more. We've been soaking up the sun and being outdoors as much as possible. Well, except for today. Too hot for the mister and way more than "stifling". Hee

This week has been spent buried in the studio, finalizing the sketches for the upcoming children's poetry book I'm illustrating - Ladybug! Ladybug! Hopefully, I'll be able to share at least the cover with you this weekend. It's a beautiful collection of children's poems about ladybugs, written by the lovely, Charlotte Rains. The expected release is July 2016. Eek!

  2. Looking forward to seeing the Ladybug! Ladybug! artwork! And good for you both for getting that walk in daily! It's so important and we always mean to do it more often that the few times a week that we do, especially at this time of year. Where does the time go? :)

  3. It has already reached triple digit weather here in Arizona, Alexandra. Sadly, I won't be taking any walks, short or otherwise. Please remember me when you take your lovely walks in cool Colorado!

    Your sketches are absolutely fabulous. I feel so blessed to have found you. And just in time to illustrate, Ladybug! Ladybug! We will definitely be keeping our fingers crossed for a July release date!
