Today, a friend and I took a drive to a great little shop in the country, Monches Farm. Along with beautiful seasonal home decor, they have a perennial farm, and a chicken house. Seeing all the chickens and the roosters strutting around made me think about painting one of those kingpins!
I've named him "The Judge" - because he's the one who would walk around like he owns the place. 6 x 8 inch watercolor - it's the perfect size for a standard 5 x 7 inch mat. It has been painted on extremely sturdy #300 Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper. You can find it in my Etsy shop, Gillyflower Cottage, or on my gallery page at Daily Paintworks.
Also, my ABC book,
O is for the BIG OAK TREE, Children's Rhymes from A to Z
is in the shop at Gillyflower Cottage. They did a great job on them. The colors are rich and vibrant and the books are printed on heavy cardstock with the front and back covers on even heavier stock. Spiral bound to make it easy to see the whole painting on each page, and easy holding for read-alouds.
I ordered 30 copies and am busy personalizing - 15 books have been purchased and will be mailed out by the end of the week.
