Hey everyone! Just sharing some good news here! We have a local "celebrity" author and illustrator, Tedd Arnold, who recently released one of his numerous wonderful books and so our local paper, The Leader, did quite a large article on him in yesterday's Sunday paper. And as part of the article, they also included a rather large side bar on my upcoming book as well! Woo hoo! The Leader also promised me a nice, large article on my book when it's released this fall as well. Anyway, just thought I would share! :) -Gina

Yes- I know this was actually the theme for March and it is nine days into April- but I finally got it done!!! yeah!
So stuck it up here for all to see.
The scene is showing the Flat Irons, rock outcrops above Boulder Colorado, near where I grew up.
It is very "earthy" and "granola-ish"-the new hippy- couldn't resist- but we all need to "go green" and recycle. We only have one planet and so much room and make way too much trash!

Great suggestion, Kathleen! As soon as I read that, this illo came to mind. This was one of the very first illustrations I'd ever done, way back when I was wondering and learning all about this business and hoping someday I might have some kind of CLUE what it's all about! I call it "Toy Parade" and it's entirely colored pencil. On a side note, I am now *celebrating* not only because I'm one hour into my 10 day long spring break (woo hoo!), but because I'm mailing out my 20+ paintings for my book to the publisher TONIGHT! Yup, she's done! 7 months of long hours and hard work but every single brush stroke was beyond worth it! So April is most certainly the month to CELEBRATE!! :) -Gina
