A Peek at One of My Current Art Projects

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!
The booklet will be introduced at Tennessee's Sandhill Crane Festival sponsored by the Tennessee Ornithological Society and TN Wildlife Resources Agency.  The festival will be held at the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge and Birchwood, TN, January 14th and 15th, 2012 and promises great entertainment and thousands of sandhill cranes.  Mark your calendars for this event!

More information about the festival can be found at the following websites:

You may also want to visit my activity book created for Operation Migration, the Craniac Kid's Whooping Crane Activity Book.  This activity book is free to teachers for their classrooms or may be purchased individually from Operation Migration.  Click the link for more information.
