Dragon's Eggs for Thanksgiving

Well, I just finished the final painting for the cover of the YA novel, "Dragon's Egg", written by Sarah L. Thomson. I am happy with the final result. Not much changed from the sketch, except for the hairstyle of the boy. (a bit more contemporary here.) I also went to the "Original Art" show at the Society of Illustrators. There were lots of surprises, and some very beautiful children's book illustrations. I was introduced to Jerry Pinkney and Mo Willems, as well as running into my former teacher from RISD. As you may know the 10 best illustrated books from New York Times review came out. Lane Smith's "John, Paul, George and Ben" made the list which was nice to see.
Have a happy Turkey Day!

Two new Moonpowder paintings

Here are a couple of new paintings I have just completed for Moonpowder.
Not much to say, except that it takes me about a week to do a finish painting. Normally they would come quicker but with a 7 month old baby in the house, things have slowed down. I just have to get used to this pace for a while.
In other news, I have now posted images to a site called imagekind. They make and distribute beautiful prints of artwork and photographs. There is a link to my gallery on my website. or you can just click here (I think). http://www.imagekind.com/GalleryProfile.aspx?GID=1febf59e-2b1c-48ad-a01b-363bd0b6871f&P=1
