I'm back, again.

Something about having a baby takes the wind out of my blogging sails. But now that she's more than a month old its time for me to get back on the horse. (Shall we see how many cliches I can come up with?)
I love doing art and coming up with ideas. Its fun to day dream about a new project. Its even more fun to see a project come to fruition. I'm still working on my up coming portfolio. I'll post one of my new painting today on this very post.
This is a picture that I started more than four years ago, but at the time I didn't know how to move forward with it. I've picked it up off and on over the past four years to piddle with it. For the longest time I couldn't move past this point of my painting. My vision exceeded my skill.

 I've finally got to a point where I'm satisfied with it. And here it is...."Jungle Dan." I think I'd still like to work on a few parts that need work, but over all I'm pleased with the way this is shaping up.

Awesome. I have been wondering how you and how the baby is. Sounds like it's good.

I really enjoy the changes from the first to the second illustration. The shadows especially bring it all together.

Have you done, or thought of doing, an Eye Spy type of book? We love those kinds of books out our house;)

Renea, that is a great idea. I have thought of drawing up find the hidden picture, and submitting it to the friend, but I have yet to do that. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for your comments, Manelle. And see you this Saturday.
