One of my very favorite movies is M. Night Shyamalan's Signs. It still scares me every time I watch it. Since this week's Illustration Friday topic is "Emergency", I decided that an absolutely frightening situation would be appropriate. The alien invasion just slightly beat out my nightmare of being chased by velociraptors (which I have had repeatedly since I was about nine years old.) I used the house from Signs and even put Bo on the swingset. She doesn't even see the aliens attacking!

Busy, busy week, but I'm finally going home tomorrow! Hopefully I will be able to post fun things from PA.

Have a great Thursday!

This is the second in a series of paintings I'm working on for my mom. Originally, these were going to be for her birthday/mother's day (which are two weeks apart), but I decided to take my time and deliver them in installments. Here she is on her porch with her dog, where you can find her on most summer mornings...

There was absolutely no way that I could work this into the Illustration Friday topic of "Emergency", so maybe I will do something quick for that and try to get it up within the next couple of days. I'm going home for a couple weeks on Friday (hooray!) so hopefully that means I will have a lot more time to draw and doodle and make pretty things to post. Or I could be lazy and do nothing. I'll try to find a happy medium somewhere.

Happy Monday Everyone!

Yes, I am one of the many Harry Potter fans out there. After reading the final book last week, I decided that I really wanted to paint something in honor of the series. I decided that I would couple that with this week's Illustration Friday topic (Moon) and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!

Happy Wednesday Everybody!
