Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let you know my book illustrations for the book Sunbeams was just published, and can be found online at:

The book was written by Child Psychologist Jean Holtz and is about child abuse. You'll find the book under books about child abuse.

Several friends asked where they could buy the book, so here's your chance.

Many thanks,

Let the Sunshine Out Winner

The winner of this contest was Jane Wentling. Congratulations to Jane for your very sunshine-y painting. Great shadows!

Let the Sunshine Out

Vanguard Artists held a "contest" with a them of "Let the Sunshine Out". We were to paint something that showed the sunshine and there were many imaginative takes to show the sunshine. Below are photos of all the entries, the display made it difficult to include all of the paintings in one shot so I took several.

An Easter Gift From Kristi Herring


by Kristi Herring

There is an Easter bunny,
I've seen him in our yard...
And some of you have painted him,
And put him on a card...

I saw him in our garden
Hidings eggs just right...
Johnny wants the red egg,
"Now children let's not fight".

When the bunny's task is over,
And the children have their fun...
Filling all their baskets
In the morning sun...

After eating all Easter eggs,
You might need to rest...
But the ones made of chocolate,
Are the very best!...
