Illustration Friday: Ripple


For a donation of $10 to The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies and The International Bird Rescue Research Center you can own this original gouache card, as well as a host of others by artists across the globe. See the details on Kelly Light's Ripple blog.

Here's to you Kelly, dear. I wouldn't have thought that by the time I got to painting a Ripple, I would be in the 300 series.

I am so impressed with Kelly Light's generosity and drive to make Ripple such a success.

Hopefully, I can paint at least one more card to add to the collective splash the wonderful art community is making.

Also, I've never seen a real Pelican. Certainly, my little boy hasn't. I truly hope we are able to do so someday, don't you?
