It's been so long since I've posted on this blog! Partly because I've been using facebook more, and partly I suppose because I've been busy finishing a book illustration project. I'd like to get back in the routine here, though! In the meantime, here is a quick sketch I drew and painted the other day.
hello! I thought it was about time I popped in and said hello. I've been so busy with my job and my little ones, I scarcely have a minute to post anything! This photo above shows the little ermine who were chattering at us during a nature walk out on the tundra with my watercolor field journal class. They were very cute, and very serious! These two were babies! This walkway you see is put down for researchers who study the tundra every summer.
And here is what we have had to do with every chair in the house since baby Ian started climbing. If we put one down he immediately climbs up onto the table or even the kitchen counter. It gets exhausting lifting him down and hearing him cry about it, so for now this works. Except when we need to sit down!

Poppies and other wildflowers
A close up of our trees here in Barrow- willows that grow just a few inches tall.
And that's all I've got for now! It might be a while before I can post again. Thanks for visiting!!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention- I would have loved to have flown down to the Eric Carle Museum in MA a couple weeks ago to see Lisbeth Zwerger in person, along with her artwork- but alas I could not. However, they have the exhibition catalog for sale on the museum website. I collect all things Lisbeth, so yay! I ordered it.
