We are feeding the birds and they are filling our garden with activity, such a delight! Feels good to be painting a little after busy time at work, cooking, visiting and resting nothing too tasking....ah holidays.
Looking at seed catalogues as well the new year begins. 
Wishing everyone a joyful and restful Christmas.

Slow start to the day

Ever have one of those mornings when nothing starts of quite right? 

I think this little character is having one of those days a very slow start on a wet morning. It will get better :) Inspired by illustration friday challenge slow....
Which one do you like best? I had fun adding the rain :) Trying to put together a portfolio for children's illustrations to send to publishers which images should I include? Any suggestions and feedback would be appreciated!

Ghosts of Summer, Remembrance.

Ghost of Summer
Today was short sleeve weather, gardening, long weekend filled with remembrance, display at the library with my fathers medals from WW2, events from Ottawa in the past few weeks....time passing, not forgotten.
