Illustration for upcoming book

Just finished this new illustration for the children's young adult novel, Littlejim, written by Gloria Houston. Here Jim is speaking on "What it means to be an American." The 48-star flag denotes the Union circa 1917, when our story takes place in North Carolina's Appalachian mountains. Jim's mother and sisters are on the back row. Jim is standing on a platform at the front of the schoolroom to deliver his speech.

Illustration Friday: Tattoo

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
