A few weeks ago we took a family trip to the beach. One day M sat down and said, "Let's draw shells!" How could I say no to that? So we drew shells together.
Then I made a coloring page. Then we came home and I kept drawing.
I started playing with color and texture from some watercolors images I made with this piece in mind.
Charlie suggested I use a photograph of sand he took while we were at the beach. I tried it and I liked it! I have a feeling it won't be too long before Fox plays an even greater role in the process too, but in the meantime, I like thinking of this piece as a collaboration between Mabel, Charlie and me!
I made a coloring page from my newest drawing. I thought some of you, like me, aren't ready for the waning of summer. Here's a little summery activity to ever-so-slightly extend the season: a seashell coloring page!

Ana Campos of Toil and Trouble recently sent me a message asking about ordering a custom size for a print. Since I print each item as it's ordered, custom sizes are no problem! She decided on a Pumpkin print, and snapped a shot of it in it's new home! Wasn't that so sweet and doesn't it look fantastic on that beautiful yellow wall? Makes me ready for the cooler fall days!
