Hiding a Butterfly...

On each spread of my book Farmers' Market Day is a small hidden butterfly-
no particular species...just friendly!

Butterflies…. oh my!

So MANY butterflies are in my recently released 32 page picture book, Butterfly Counting, it was hard to select some pages to share.  So I tossed them all in the air and these fluttered down onto my desktop.

I couldn't resist sharing a butterfly coloring page, too.  Lots more coloring pages of lots of different animals can be found on my website:

SCBWI Book Challenge

Our challenge this year at Orlandos SCBWI was to come up with a wordless/ or little word picture book. 24 to 32 pages. I was only able to pull off 16 pages but was able to do 2 finishes. This is one.
It was a challenging project.

Over on the Farm

Ok, it's not a birthday image, (our inspirational word for June is Birthday) but it's the cover for a book I have coming out Spring 2016. Artwork for this book is complete and I'm working away on a second book that will be released the same date. I'll post more about this book and others on my Studio With A View Blog soon.

Thanks for taking a look!
