Mothering for Homeschool

Hey folks. I'm returning after a two-moth, involuntary haiatus from the internet. I'm back in Italy these days, studying and working on some fun projects. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot to show just yet -but I HAVE been keeping a good sketchbook and so maybe I'll have the courage to hook up the scanner before too long...

I'm not doing as many illustrations these days, but I DID recently do a few pieces for a homeschooling article in MOTHERING magazine. It was a fun project, and I even broke out the watercolors for it! Here's one of the pictures:



More soon? I hope so.

Thanks all! I wish I could do more stuff like this. It's fun and the Motehring Magazine people are really nice (but what did I expect).

I'm just back in Italy for the wine. NO! I mean, to do some more painting and study and a little work.
