Highlights Pewter Plate Award

Earlier this month I received a package that I wasn't expecting.  Inside was a letter from Highlights magazine and an award for illustrator of the month for the April issue!   There is so much great artwork in each issue that I was both honored and surprised to have gotten the award.  The artwork was for the poem, "For Rent: One Moon Snail Shell".  So pick up the April issue and check it out!
Here's my scan of the artwork.
 The original, printed form, and Pewter Plate.

Artful Orchestra

A few months back I was asked to paint a violin to help raise money for Gateway Preparatory Academy.  It was fun to do something a little different, and painting on an object adds a fun twist.  You can go here to look at all the instruments and to bid.  The artwork is very impressive and I'm flattered to have mine alongside some other great artist!
