The Great Goose Egg Auction 2014

I am excited to be a part of The Great Goose Egg Auction 2014 for Open Fields School.  In 1996, a parent donated more than 100 blown goose eggs for use in the school. 

A friend of the school and illustrator of children's books, the late Trina Schart Hyman (April 8, 1939–November 19, 2004), suggested that the eggs, if decorated and sold as unique works of fine art, could benefit all of the Open Fields students. Her idea hatched into an annual online auction that supports the school with the sale of artist-decorated eggs. Each year, goose, quail, hen and emu eggs are sent to artists all over the world and returned to Open Fields School as works of art!

This is my egg for this year's auction:  As Free as a Bird (sticking with my recent pigeon/morning dove love, of course)

St. Patrick's Day


May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

I'm still here!

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to let you all know that I haven't vanished.  I'm still here.  I've been working feverishly on sketches for the first book in the series I'm working on with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  It's been wonderful.  I turned in the first round of sketches last week, and now I'm waiting to hear back regarding revisions.

When I'm able to post pictures of the artwork, I will.

The first two books of the series will be out Fall 2015.  :)
