enjoying the wait

From Ruby and Esme


We are finally done with our illustration samples with text and are now waiting...for a word or better, a green light. No matter what happens we are in LOVE with this project and know it has wings. Can't wait to show you more.

Last Friday, Kathie and I spoke to a local group of senior artists called the Palette Club. We showed our work, talked about process and shared with them our back and forth project Ruby and Esme. Both of us had grins on our faces from the time we arrived and for days after the event. They were all so excited for us, told us what great "girls" we were and to keep up the good work. They wished us deep luck for this book and our long lives ahead (keep in mind we are not spring chickens) but...on second thought, maybe we are. Thank you members of the Palette Club, we adored our time with you.

That's cool! How come I never heard about that? That's good stuff.

And yes indeed this project has wings. Big, beautiful flowing strong wings.

And legs too.
