Painting, Illustrations and a New Video

Well. I have been busy doing many paintings and illustrations and I thought it was about time I shared some of them.
I have joined a Facebook group called weekly character design and absolutely loving the prompts. Below are some of the illustrations I have created.





That last one was a present I painted for my 4 sister' for Christmas. They each loved theirs.
Now, I thpught I wpuld try something new and started a YouTube channel. I recently created a few simple Valentine's cards. And actually suitable for kids to create too.
Here is the link to it in the "heart card" text below.
                                   Heart Card   

 I am going to link this to Paint Party Friday too. Haven't linked in quite some time and you will find the direct link to PPF to the left.

Would love to know what you think of the little video.
Until next time
Lots of it

I love your illustrations! Made me want to read the book they could be in and learn more of the stories! They are wonderfully done! Hope you will keep posting. My Mom (Latane in Va) and I started our own painting blog and we use it to post all our artwork and join in with PPF every week with our posts. Hope you will visit us both.
