Contemporary colorful paintings of fun and figures.

I decided to write and illustrate a book for my grandchildren. Right now I am working on the illustrations and when I get those all done I will attempt to do the text the way I want. If I fail at that I will just simplify it and call it good. The theme of the book is, "What Can You Do When You Go To Grandcamp?" That is only a theme and a working title, not the finished idea. When the kids come to visit we call it Grandcamp. So, if it is at the beach we do beach things, like hula-hoop! I am doing these with an outline and then painting in sections as if I was doing a coloring, kind of like school kids tend to do. My grandkids are being raised to color outside of the lines...so we will see what will happen with that! Anyway, this is a fun diversion and it is always great to work on projects for the kids. This week I am taking a workshop with Dreama Tolle Perry, so I am mostly concentrating on that.
