IF: I Spy . . .

This weeks Illustration Friday theme is I Spy . . . , and I just happened to finish this piece this morning! She is spying over the top of her fan, and I am sure that she is looking into the eyes of her parent, or friend, and they are enjoying a Spring afternoon. So, I spy with my little eye family and fun.

I woke with a sore throat this morning, so forgive the Dayquil induced sillyness!

Tin Fairy Houses

My super talented friend Tyn taught a class this past weekend at Creative Courage in Woodland Hills. I was lucky enough to get a chance to take the class and play for a few hours. As an artist who works alone 99.9% of the time, it was really fun to get to hang out and laugh and share with other people. The process was fun to learn! I was impressed by how wonderful the final results were! Everyone made gorgeous pieces and spent a wonderful afternoon. Thank you Tyn!

Self-Portrait Challenge

Today was a good day. A day I have anticipated for months! My new computer is finally here! About 6 months ago my Powerbook screen stopped working when the hinge snapped. That was a bad day. But today, the skies have cleared! This is my first post typed from my brand new Macbook Pro. I am so grateful for the mobility, the speed, and the working screen! Love this thing! The huge jump in RAM and the disk space doesn't hurt either, though I am sure it will all be gone before I know it!

So, for this weeks SPC I give you my very first screen shot from the built in camera. That is pretty hi-tech if I do say so myself!

And in case you are wondering, I am feeling a lot less sick of myself this week! A haircut, a visit to the Paper Source for a fresh supply, and a brand spankin' new computer really help to inspire and lift ones spirits! I hope the week is treating you as kindly!
