I forgot to post these pictures from a Family Day at my local museum, where I read "The Grumpy Pets" and drew with the kids.
Fall has busy. That's for sure. I've been lucky to be a part of Sharon Pitt's watercolor class. She is such a sweetheart and talent. It's an honor to study with her. As a result I have become a huge fan of watercolor. It is like a metaphor for life...patience, focus and letting things be. I always enjoy going there and spending hours just painting and chatting. No deadlines, no restrictions. Just fun.
Here is another one in progress...fall has the most beautiful colors. I just love leaves! Can't stop looking at them-especially this year...
Earlier this month, we celebrated my long running "Writing & Illustrating Picture Books" class at the Montclair Museum of Art. Was SO proud of all my students. Not everyone partook in exhibiting, but I toasted to them as well. So much talent. Got very few photos of the reception but here a few. :)
My friend Karen surprised me with tickets to Stevie Wonder! What a fun night. Such a legend.
And finally, I did one last event for Lovey in October in Madison, NJ. In last minute attempt to drum up more customers, I grabbed some chalk and created a sign for the sidewalk board. See? An author's job is never done. promote promote! GG Collins--soon to be author herself took this plc of me reading.
Bonus pic! Took this of friends Yuko and Allyn at Il Bastardo, NYC during a decadent afternoon drinking and laughing on the perfect fall day. Carpe Diem!!! xo, k
