September Doodlings

(For Sunday, connecting to BlueChairDiary's Sunday Sketches.  Visit there to see other participants.)

Well, September is practically over, Fall is here and I have neglected this blog, I see.  I've been in a sort of funk, just tired I guess.  We've all seen those movie plots about the writer or painter that is struggling under a deadline and is behind and/or lost his muse--that's been me!  I did do another illustration but chose not to share it--it will be a surprise when the book comes out. 
I did do some fun stuff, not related to my book illustrations. 


I took a simple drawing, and tweaked it a bit:


then I painted it---just for the fun of it! 



Hope to have some progress on the book illustrations to show you next week!  Wish me luck!

It turned out lovely! Our weather is making me want to do anything other than be inside being crafty so maybe when the rains return we'll both be feeling all creative again.

It very lovely, Linda! I love the soft watercolors.
I've been way too busy lately to feel crafty or creative. I'm looking forward to when those days return.
