We love to illustrate

This is a small illustration from my 2002 children's book (colored pencil).

Celtic Firebird

I am thinking of entering this new work in a show next month called "Cultural Crossroads." I have been going through a big Celtic art phase. This piece has elements of the "fire of inspiration" (flames), St. Brigid's cross (the 4 antique brass/metallic elements around the rim of the circle), & of course, Celtic knotwork (body of firebird). I do not know of firebirds being present in Celtic folklore, so my inspiration here is a mixture of Celtic design with Slavic/Russian legend.

IF: Breakfast

Here's an illustration of breakfast from my children's book, published in 2002. (We had permission from the Neese's family for the Neese's sausage: yum.) :)
