    Beautiful work karen and good luck with the book! Your work would be just amazing published in a children’s book!

  • Thank you so much Dianne – I have always dreamt of illustrating children’s books, but lately had sort of given up on the idea, so you never know where life will take you!!! :)

    now this is what blows me away Karen! when I see work like this I know I am a long way off the mark :) …the detail astounds me..but you know that right! I am sure we will soon be viewing your work in a children’s picture book! beautiful artwork!

  • You are definitely NOT off the mark Linda. There would be plenty who criticise my artwork for being too detailed and tight and lacking in creativity. There is a certain freedom that comes with losing the detail, but somehow I have never mastered it. Your work is beautiful Linda and don’t ever doubt yourself, but I’ll take your lovely comments any day and thank you!!! :)
