Hello Friends,
Yeah I know, I've been missing in action. I'm still here
under my pile of work, but I came out just to share
another piece that didn't make it into a book.
I did this piece for the new, Billie Holiday book
that will be coming out this fall. Sometime certain
pieces just don't make the cut. While this one didn't
I still adore it. Hope you like it. Have a wonderful
week everyone!

Gah. Must be frustrating to put so much wonderful effort and dreaming into a piece, only to have it benched. Well, I think this is adorable! Puppy don't wanna go for a walk, hehehehe. Love her purse! Looks like an LP! And the collage in fabulous!

The bright side is that we get a sneak preview of some of your upcoming projects! Such cuteness all around with this assortment of pups, lately! And I loved Billie Holiday in your previous post- she just sparkles! Hope you are doing well these days- your work is such a joy to see, as usual! :o)
