Happy New Year 2015!

I count my fortunes, blessings, and health, but what is any of this without you? Cherished palimsest memories and ongoing glances at the tiniest of details, however wonderful, carefully catalogued in a leaf album, has all been with you in mind. Thanks so much for your support. Lets go into the New Year knowing we can make fun art and maybe, if we're lucky, notice the unexpected.

Flowers Are Calling: First Proofs!

Flowers Are Calling is about flowers and their pollinators!  HMH is releasing this in the first quarter of 2015. It comes out after the release of my second book The Dinner That Cooked Itself, which is coming out this winter through Flying Eye Books. Lots of late hours go into these picture books, but it's worth it. I'll update you soon with more news!

Sun and Dog

I wanted to work with a light grey background on this one
vs. my usual blasted white.  I have a couple more of these,
and then back to passerines.  I'm revisiting the east coast. 
What happen to those winter landscapes?  Hope all is well.
