Island Breeze

Watercolor & gouache, 11x14
Island breeze. 
Granada.
Filmy Curtains billow.
Exposing the verdant view.
No AC, no fans.
For the gentle winds caress. 
Light air fluffs the dress for night.
A tropical drink in sight.


   I accidentally found this YouTube video of a child reading my children's book "The Nothing Zoo" and it is so cute that I have to share it. 
Adorable. 


And here are some other illustrations from the book. 
Note: I did this many years ago and had followup books on the environment, but at that time publishers weren't interested in saving our planet. So.... they sit in a drawer. A sad commentary on the industry. If anyone is interested in backing my books, let me know.

The Angels Come Out

The Angels come out.
To protect, to heal, to comfort~
From all walks of life, every country, every ethnic group, all colors, all languages, all services.
Heroes with halos.
With wings.

Beach solace

Stay at home they say
You find a way
To escape home prison; 
A calmer vision.
The sound of silence
A 6 foot alliance
Be brave
Savor the breaking wave.

Today is Spring

Today is spring. 
From earth crocus tilt toward the sun.
They're delicate but resilient– 
so must we be.

Fish or fowl.

1 for the fish.
2 for the fowl.
On water.
On land.
On air.
Quiet.
Cool.
Excitement.

Group hug

Hugs we all need.
šŸŽ¶Altogether now. Altogether now. šŸŽ¶
Friends, family- maybe strangers.
A year of loss, division, unrest.
Keep your loved ones close.
A new year is coming.
Group hug.

"Beefy" beauty

Angus the dog.
"Beefy" but beautiful.
Fur of black velvet and smooth silk.
Soulful eyes.
Soulmate. 
Now sitting on a cloud.
