I have several art projects underway that have demanded my attention and caused me to temporarily disappear from blogging. But this is only a pause and means I have lots to share with you soon, including new paintings, new note cards, an exciting book review that I've been eager to share with you, and a children's activity book that I am creating in cooperation with the Tennessee Ornithological Society.
Below is the two-page center spread illustration for the activity book compiled from my many experiences observing the majestic sandhill crane. I loved creating this illustration!
