Pear Tree Sketch – 2 of 20 Wild Plums Art Series

When I was a child, we lived on this beautiful hill in rural Iowa. There were two gorgeous pear trees next to the garden overlooking the countryside beyond.

Mom put up a hammock from Mexico. My brothers and I would play and read and take naps out there under the twin pear trees. Our dogs and cats would join us.

Here are a few pictures and a (new!) video of my “Pear Tree” painting still in progress.

My new artwork series is a meditation on my childhood growing up off-the-grid in rural Iowa. My goal is to write a children’s book using this series of 20 paintings as the illustration for the book. Thank you to the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation – BeWildReWild – Community Artist Grant for your generous support of my project.

New “Birds in Boots” Book In Progress

I’ve been working on the concept and sketches for my next book for almost a year now. I’m finally at a point where I have something ready to share…exciting!

Birds in Boots COVER

Yay! Birds in Boots is starting to come together and will feature a whole family of birds all wearing fabulous boots. This is the first book I’ve written specifically for kids and is dedicated to my one-year-old son.

0 Dedication Page

I hope to share more soon as the next pages develop.

Artfully,
