Pearl's mane would get entangled with the wind every time Jena went galloping down the open field.

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season!

The opposite of unbalanced is balanced!

This week's word is a real challenge for me. I'm am very particular about having balance in all my compositions. It really bother's me if something is off balance or 'unbalanced'. Not that I make everything symmetrical, but it needs to have a counter element. I could have illustrated something unbalanced, but I was already having fun with this illustration, so I decided to share it here. I really like the elephant.
Oh, and what is a White Elephant doing in the snow? Well, this is for a White Elephant party...yes! The holiday fun is just beginning!

Have a great week!

Event Stationary

I've been doing a lot of cutting and pasting for a project. A good friend asked me to design all of the stationary for her event and I couldn't say no to a fun project! I had full creative license, so I was able to incorporate one of my illustrations.
The names are a 'blur' on the place card, just so I could tie this in with Illustration Friday!!! --I know!, but I have been so busy lately, my blogging is really suffering. There's one more piece to this, but it's not quite finished...

I hope you all have a great weekend...and thanks for stopping by.

THANK YOU! I want to start this post by thanking the people that always seem to know when I need some encouragement and always know exactly what to say. I want to say thank you for caring and for taking the time to reach out. I really appreciate it!!!

The holiday season has been officially kicked off at our house, and that usually means that I'll be running around like a chicken without a head until the end of the year!

I wanted to share with you the re-make of one of my favorite illustrations. I had created and animal party a while back and really enjoyed all the characters in it. However, it no longer matched my current style and I had to pull it out of my portfolio. I decided to just re-do it with my new style and I have to say, I'm very pleased with the results.

What do you think?
