Calendar 2019

Looking for gift ideas? How about a calendar or a children’s book?

You’re in the right place! I now have three new items for sale.  These were all inspired by my recent trip to Zambia. A 2019 calendar, a perpetual calendar, and my first attempt at an illustrated children’s book!

First, the book- I made a custom one for my granddaughter, and posted a video of it.  It got so many nice comments, I decided to recreate it.  The book consists of 24 full color pages of animals seen in Zambia, 8.5”x8.5”, and is available on Amazon.  I do have a limited quantity of advance copies available for sale at $10.00 each.Book If you went on a Safari Cover

Second, a 2019 calendar. ($12 each) The same format as past years, 8.5×11, spiral bound at the top, with each one individually wrapped for easy gift giving, using my art inspired by Zambia combined with new quotes.  Calendar 2019

Finally, a new perpetual calendar, 5.5×11, spiral bound at the top, with each one individually wrapped for easy gift giving, using the same art and quotes as the 2019 calendar. ($12 each)   Keep this one and refer to it for years to come for important birthdays and other dates.  Calendar perpetual

Finally, if you’re looking for more of my art, some are originals, some are prints, and they’re available here on my Etsy page!

Catching up

Not sure how all of you (in the U.S.) are dealing with this cold snap. It’s sounds like we’ll be seeing warmer temperatures very soon, thankfully!
Meanwhile, I’ve been inside as much as possible, trying to stay busy. Lots of organizing, minimizing and cleaning out the old. Some art, and here are a  couple of recent ones…
Locally, a visit to the farmers market got me a couple of delicata squash. Cut and roasted, these make a delicious snack.  Delicata squash

An impulse purchase of a dozen quail eggs led to this sketch.  I was given instructions on how to break the eggs (tough shells!) or how to hard boil, which is what I did. After boiling, the inside of the shell is a very pale blue. They didn’t seem to taste much different than chicken eggs, but it was fun to try something different, and of course, get a quick sketch out of it too!  Quail eggs

One of my recent gifts was this adorable set of 3 photo holders, inspired by my travels.  They have the curly wires on top (not shown) to hold a pic.Jungle photo holders

Finally, I am very happy with the results of these two wrapped canvas with my art printed on them. They come ready to hang, no framing needed. They will be going to their new homes tomorrow.  2 elephant paintings

If you like these, or want a paper or canvas print of any of my art, let me know!  Even though I haven’t quite finished with sketching African creatures, I’m working on matting and framing my originals, and will have some prints available for sale.

Warm hugs to all of you and thank you for stopping by! ?

Zambia – more art!

Not sure if you’ve seen enough, but here’s some more art made from my trip photos and sketches. I haven’t even gotten to the elephants yet, (my favorites, you may recall!) I’m saving those, and I may shed a tear or two while sketching as they are so dear to my heart. ❤️

Hyena – I wondered what he was looking at?

The giraffes were very tall!

Zebra

Zebra – their black and white stripes were quite vivid.

The hippos are cute, but very dangerous!
