hello!


Hello all my blog buddies, I'm still here, just been super busy! Thought I'd pop in real quick and show some more animals in my alphabet. I actually did these a couple of weeks ago and just found a minute to put them on the 'ole blog. Some of the letters of the alpha are a bit of a challenge - not quite so much fun as others. Newt was one of those for me. I was going for a cute newt, but didn't want it to look too cartoonish. I hope I did that. The quail was fun, though, with his funky head plume.

I've been spending a lot of time fulfilling my duties as the Arts Coordinator for my daughter's High School this week and I'm working on a series of mixed media paintings for the gallery I show at.

I miss you, Adobe Illustrator, but I'll be back soon. I promise.

Great job, Nina! I love the colors, details, patterns, adorableness and definitely didn't turn out too cartoony at all.

Have a great weekend :)

Great Newt nina! Wow, you're getting so close to the end! Good for you. :) Glad to hear about all of your side projects too. It's good to get away from the 'ole computer every now and then and get your paints out. :)
