Haven't been posting for awhile. I've written 3 children's picture book stories over the past two years and spent some time sprucing them up and getting two of them off to a few publishers this past month. I'm really excited about the last story I wrote: "The Littlest Snowflake", which I think will make a great Christmas story for children. I just hope a publisher will like it as much as I do. Wish me luck!
I've also taken out my easel and oil paints and started painting again. I've started a 16" x 16" painting of a tiger's head which is much harder than I thought. I'm struggling with getting the fur texture to look like real fur. There have been a lot of attempts and a lot of rubouts but with persistence and patience I will finish it. I love wild animals and cats and dogs as well. Every time I see a good photo of an animal I have visions of me painting it on canvas. Well, we'll see what happens with this one.
