Happiness is a warm puppy.
Charles M. Schulz

New in my etsy shop:

I drew this puppy many years ago and painted it in a series of colorful, watercolor postcards. Recently, I revisited the drawing and made it into an unlimited edition linocut titled, Puppy I.

There is something about a puppy that means instant smiles and warm hearts.

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving just passed in the U.S.A. and I am thankful for much in my life. Of course, family and friends are at the top of the list. And the list is quite long when I think about it!

I've been doing quick figure and body parts sketches most mornings while I have my coffee, and this hand fit perfectly with my gratitude for the freedom to express myself.

In the coming weeks, I'll be working on a monkey linocut for the year of the monkey and my New Year's cards.

wishing everyone well and joining sunday sketches
