JUMP is a project that I worked on a couple years ago. I got some great feedback from an editor, but then I needed to take a break from it and let the new ideas germinate. I’ve pulled it off the shelf and am working on it again with energy and enthusiasm! I LOVED painting that bee. The water in the pool (below) was a bit challenging for me. I don’t paint a lot of swimming pools, so I had to research and decide what approach I wanted to take.
For one of my newer projects, I’m working with a loose, energetic watercolor style. This dog is on the run and I want the illustrations to capture that energy.
