New Art, and other news



I love cupcakes!! so naturally I had to do a painting praising them :-D

Today I finally got around to updating my Etsy shop, it was getting quite stale. It's been a busy few weeks, and I feel pulled in many directions, which I am sure many of you understand. There is so much to do, and focusing on one thing is a problem.

This weeks word for Illustration Friday is 'hollow' and I was hoping to have something to submit, but this one has me stumped. If nothing comes to mind, I may have to pass.

Now for some good news (for me at least)...one of my prints made it to the July issue of 'Pregnancy and Newborn' magazine! What a great feeling to open up this magazine, and see my American Beauty print!
Here is a pic of the page, and the magazine. I'd like to say thanks again to Shea, for choosing my little American gal.




That's it for tonight, I have some new ACEO mermaids I finished today, but I will have to show them another day...thanks for reading my blog dear friends :-)

Oh, how lucky you are to have one of your art in a magazine. I bet your over the moon.
Your cup cake girl is so cute and love the colours.
Hollow, you could put a hole in the tummy part of the body. Some people say they feel hollow with a hole here when they have lost a dear one close to them. Maybe could paint something nice through the hole of the body or something to show why she is feeling hollow.
Like a broken heart?
All the best and thank you for your beautiful messages.
