Brown and pink bird painting

>> Saturday, March 18, 2006

This is what I painted today. I'm thinking of creating an extra illustration portfolio for editorial work. I love children's illustration, but I thought I would also like to branch out a bit (excuse the pun). I also spent some time leafing through my Martha Stewart wedding magazines for inspiration for our invitations. I've been a bit daunted about planning for the wedding so I'm starting with something I like to do. The bird illustration is possibly for the invitations.

I've also been busy updating my illustration site, I sent out a lot of self promotions recently and I want people to see an updated site if they visit.

I love that painting! Its your style, but yet its different and new. You should do more, definitely. I you should definitely do you own wedding invites, or at least as much as you have time for. So much more memorable that way.

I love it! I am so into birds and blossoms right now probably because I am yearning for spring. I think I must have missed a step about a wedding so here is a late congratulations for you! I designed every aspect of my small garden wedding and it exhausting but oh so fun. I am sure you will have many beautiful things-can't wait to see it all unfold-cheers!
