Dordogne Sketchbook and Paintings

I’ve gathered a small collection of the many sketches I did on a trip to France this spring. Dave and I traveled to the Dordogne region to see the prehistoric cave art of Lascaux, Font de Gaume, and other caves. The experience of walking through these caves by flashlight and seeing these ancient paintings on the walls, especially in Font de Gaume, where we walked through the original cave and saw paintings dating back 15,000 years, was awe inspiring. I will carry the images of those sacred paintings forever in my mind.

Hoot and Peep

At last - two little owls who live on the rooftops of my dreams get to live for real in my book, Hoot and Peep! Book birthdays are always the best - this one especially so.

Barn Owl

I felt like painting a moody piece in preparation for a book I'm beginning. It's always challenging and fun to break into new territory.

Daily Sketch

From my daily painting-sketch journal - this little downy woodpecker has been frequenting the suet feeder outside my studio window. One perk to these cold winter days is how much I get to enjoy watching the critters around our feeder.
