I created this as part of the Look and Look Again spread for the November '15 issue of High Five Bilingüe magazine. It was so much fun to create the two pieces AND to let my kids check my work by spotting the differences!
I've been busy adding things to a small shop on Society6. I'd love it if you visited (and maybe promoted "<3" art you like). There is a lovely FREE SHIPPING promotion until March 9th if you follow this link. I'm awaiting a fire tiger tote bag - I'm too excited about it!
The Barred Owl is also going to be up at a show at Buoy Gallery in Kittery, Maine. The opening is next friday evening, March 14th - come over and say hi!
I'm painting a series of animals as elements for a gallery show next month. It's the first time in years that I'm doing something this removed from children's illustration. It's been really liberating. I love painting with gouache on wood, even if it does destroy my little brushes. After I finish the Fire/Tiger piece I might sketch up a few more ideas to keep this project rolling.
