IF Power and What I've been up to...

Well, I've been quiet again. This is why. I have been working on two book projects. This one is finished and will be available on Amazon soon. It's the first of a series. I am also working on an alphabet book but can't post anything I've done for it yet. It's been a really busy summer. My son turned 18 today and my grandson started kindergarten this week. Wow, time really flies.
I think I wish it would slow down a little ;)

I decided this would work for Illustration Friday's prompt Power, because it's about the power of determination. In the story, Nola is determined to find a coin at that beach. It was a lot of fun to illustrate this story and I can't wait to get started on the next one. I hope everyone had a great summer!

IF_Train

Did you know you could train a cat to follow you around? Well, Izzy did. She trained her kitten to follow her everywhere she went. It might have had something to do with the rabbit pull toy. 

I finally found time to post a little something. I can't remember the last time I did Illustration Friday. It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I'll have to get myself back into the blogging habit. I've been trying to stop by everyone's blogs, not as often as I'd like to, but whenever I have a few minutes. I hope you are all well. I've been busy working on a few jobs plus my son and I are trying to finish up the school year. He's a junior now. One more year! I can't believe he's seventeen. Soon I'll have to find something else to keep my brain young. ;)

IF Sky


Instead of singing "rain, rain go away",  Lizzy and Arabella wanted it to keep falling from the sky. Playing in puddles is just too much fun :D 

My son's favorite days are rainy days. I love the rain too, as long as I don't have to drive in it, and as long as it doesn't last for days on end, because my yard becomes a small pond when it does. ;)

Illustration Friday's prompt this week is sky. I've been having a bit of a dry-spell with personal work. I have started illustrations for the IF prompts for the past three or four weeks without finishing one or even posting a sketch,  so, this is a carry over from water.

Yay, I finished it. Now I need to go back and do the other ones that I started...

IF Imagination







Milly and Tilly love to twirl and twirl while imagining that they are dancing in the center of the Milky Way...  or something like that :D.

I started this for last weeks prompt, Identical and along the way it turned it into this weeks prompt Imagination mostly because I didn't get it finished in time. Well, I didn't really try to finish it. I sketched it on Thursday while I sat in the waiting room at the Center for the Visually Impaired and didn't get back to it until last night. I did try to paint them dancing on clouds, but it just wasn't working. Sparkles and stars are the next best thing though. ;)  I thought I'd post it progressively, because I haven't done that in a while. 

 I hope that you are all having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment :)
