Today’s Project – Brown Pelican

Feeling pretty sad today about the situation in the Gulf — so I drew this pelican as a sort of prayer for the birds and other wildlife. This is about 11×15″, oil pencil, called, “To Blue Water”.

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!

    Thanks – I love your wood sculptures!


  3. Your picture is incredible! You are very talented.

    The oil in the Gulf is certainly a disaster that will be affecting us for many years to come. Wish they could hurry the clean-up along somehow.

    Yes, it is a disaster, for sure. It just causes one to wonder in terms of that old cliche' — we can put a man on the moon, but…..?


  5. it was a huge disaster but im glad you cared enough to dedicate one of your wonderful paintings to it. I know you don't know me but I love your blog. I'm a 13 yr old horse enthusiast and think clifard is just darling. As are your wonderful paintings. I can't even draw a straight line but I love art and know it when I see it. You have talent when drawing or painting animals. You continue to inspire me on your blog. I cant get enough of it! Thanks and happy blogging!
