Painted hearts

Today I'm posting some painted hearts because it's still February.
This always feels like the  l o n g e s t  month to me.
I'm searching for sunshine & short sleeves pronto!
How about you?

February Flowers

If the flowers aren't ready to bloom I'll draw them instead.
Better yet, by the glow of a big full moon.
Yep, tonight is the Super Snow Moon but I can't get
myself to say snow anymore- I'm so over it.

Blah, February always feels like a year within itself.
Back to nicer thoughts... that MOON!

Tea Time

Well, it snowed here again today & think seasonal depression has set in.
I needed something cute- ridiculously cute.  These little teacup animals 
are blissfully soaking their worries away.  Which may be what mid February is all about.
Wishing you a weekend as comforting as a warm cup of tea!

Valentine Vibes

Do you do anything special for Valentine's Day?
Even before there was someone special in my life I've
always been drawn to the idea of love.
I like to create mood boards for each season 
to look at, explore & maybe even manifest.
This is one made with my art-filled with February vibes.

(Only thing I didn't make here are those sequence & that sweet little rose
patch by Riffle Paper- the rest is yours truly.)

 Here's a little Valentine I painted for my sweetheart then posted online.
(I know a little obtuse but, I was mindful enough not to post the interior sentiment!)
I was inspired by Persian art for this one & lovey dovey feelings.

Here's a close up- because being wrapped up in the 
arms of someone you love feels so good!

How Do Apples Grow?

Today I'm sharing the 8th book in my Hello, World! toddler series for Random House Kids.
How Do Apples Grow? follows the cycle of an apple seed, to seedling, flower, and finally fruit.
It's a fascinating process & made our trip to the orchard last fall even more interesting.
Learning is sweet!

Cup of Tea

TEA-it's what fuels me through the cold winter months.  
That & making stuff but, that pretty much fuels me year round!
