Meerkat sketch

I needed a break from another project that I am working on right now.  I did this quick fun sketch and added a little photoshop.

Broken toes...

I wanted to draw a quick sketch and Photoshop of what my life is like on any given day.  I have three kids (two in college ~ going to MU).  My youngest is 13...
The last number of months have been quite crazy... actually every day is an adventure in our home.  I wouldn't change it for the world!   It makes for some great stories and some wonderful ideas on what to draw.
Why did I draw this?   I just got my two oldest set up and in college... My youngest was going to school on Monday.  I had TWO days off at my "other" job ~~  I was really looking forward to drawing DRAWING DRAWING  >>>  no kids home.  Just the dog and I with the house to myself and quite.   
My youngest went to a neighbors on Sunday and played with some friends and broke her toe on a wall.  Monday and Tuesday were filled with doctor appointments and a thirteen year old hurt, upset and complaining.  Yes, I understand it is JUST a TOE...  What can the doctors really do?  AND besides life can be sooo much worse!!  I understand all of that...  I really do... Sometimes it's the every day things that keep coming into a typical family that we forget about that makes families so fun!  I enjoy all my moments with my family!  Even broken toes.

The Plotters of Cantaera written by Paul Philip Carter

This is a book cover I just completed for my husband, Paul.  The medium was done in watercolor/gouache and a little bit of photoshop to give the clouds a little more spunk.  Paul is releasing the book this weekend.  I am very excited and proud of him.   The book is a Epic Fantasy that he is self publishing for Ebooks.  For more information please check out:

I normally would not  advertise so forgive me for throwing this out there.  BUT he is my hubby and I love him and want him to succeed at what he loves.  He is my greatest critic and makes me strive to be the best I can be at my love of art.  Not very typical of most of artist friends/family ~ he is also my biggest fan ;)  (my backup(s) are my art friends to make sure I am on track...but Paul has no problem with being honest).

I hope the cover will give the book justice.

Please feel free to give feedback... and thank you for taking the time to look at my work.!
