Progress yeah! Maybe I'll get finished this week. I'm thinking of doing the shower curtain dark blue and sketching clouds in white chalk. Just have to see how I feel about it when I get back to it. I like it so far for the most part though, it seems to be coming together. I really love it when it works the way you want it too and it's not too much of a struggle to get it the way you see it.

This is my sketch for the Illustration Friday prompt this week. I am running behind because of the holidays. My sister is here visiting for the first time in a year and my daughter left today to finish college. I swore I wouldn't cry but I did. I am not linking this to IF yet, I want to try to get it colored first. I had first started a wagon train on the moon but a couple of people did something along that line so I started anew. Hope you like it.

The newest prompt for Monday Art Day is family. Just after Christmas my younger daughter is transferring to another school about 12 hours away to get her Masters. She has been asking me to do an illustration of her, so here it is. I'm not the greatest portrait artist and it's hard to capture her in 2d, but for what it's worth, here it is. Hope you like it Maura. I love you and will miss you.

Illustration Friday prompt for this week is Hatch. I had started with just the dragon hatching but someone else was faster than me so I put him in my daughter's hands. Well, she's based on my memories of what she looked like at that age anyway. She would have loved a pocket dragon when she was younger. She probably would love one still. She could hide him in her pocket and take him to class.

I have been having some computer issues and found a forum http://www.daniweb.com/. The people there are great, very helpful and patient. I made a template to give to the guy who spent a serious amount of volunteer time helping me out, just to say thanks. It is a little late for this, (I'm printing and sending mine out this week) but I am offering it to anyone who would like to download and use it. Just leave a comment if you use it please so that I will know if it is worth doing again. It is 4 x 6, because I initially was planning to use it for a postcard. I am doing the penguin side glossy and the inside with the polar bear matte but I tried one on all matte and it still looks nice, just not quite as bright of course.
