Aardvark with Shark and LarkSailed in their ark (in the dark)
This is theoretically for the series I am doing of San Cassimally's book, Animal Carnival. However, as you can plainly see, it is in a different medium and different style than the others, so I will probably redo it? (Or redo the others?) I just really wanted to play with watercolors.

botanical painting, acrylics
I am sorry to report that I am not only still sick, but I am also getting worse rather than better. I have a medical procedure scheduled May 30, which is supposed to help and I hope and pray it does.
I kind of messed this up a little, and I apologize.

I like to fight back with Flowers"

I have a lot of dreams of being chased down dark alleys by men who intend me harm. They are nightmares, because I wake up terrified. Not sure if that's what Andrea meant.

I am still sick and my work is going slowly.

I posted the steps (4 coats of paint) here, but don't have time to do it again. At least, not now.

|Crane and Snail ride the train|
acrylic on Moleskine watercolor paper
by me, Mary Stebbins Taitt
Crane also took the train.
San Cassimally, Animal Carnival
This is my illustration for San Cassimally's Animal Carnival, which I am no longer officially illustrating. I did it for Illustration Friday last week ("train"), but because of my illness, I was unable to get it done in time. (Took me a whole week, so I may be running late! Sorry).
This is actually on my LAST page, I think. (The other pages are still blank.) Because of my pain, which is usually worst in the mornings, I can't paint until evening.

This is an experiment. I created this digital image from two photographs I took. I posted it to cowbird and from cowbird to Pinterest and from Pinterest here. Weird. If you click the image twice, once here and once at Pinterest, you'll end up at the Cowbird story, with a much larger image.
