Happy Father's Day

I'm just dropping in today to wish everyone a lovely day with their fathers/husbands/partners!

There is so much going on in my studio at the moment, most of which I can't really share or talk about.  Although it's been incredibly hot outside, I'm working on winter stuff now including 2011 calendars and holiday cards.  But I'm hoping that later today I'll get a bit of a break to just do some personal doodling, so I went out in my gardens this morning to snap a few reference pics of my favorite flowers.  And for lack of anything new and arty to share, here is a tiny glimpse at my garden: 


I've got some plans in store for these inspiration shots, mainly just some small spot illustrations to add to my portfolio, but perhaps a new pattern set or two that might one day become a digital paper pack?  


And in case you missed the announcement, I will be releasing a Flourish e-book at the end of summer.  It will be an expanded version of the e-course and for those who have already taken the e-course, you will be entitled to a free copy of the e-book once it is released.  In addition, those who take future sessions of the course will also receive a free copy of the e-book.  The next session of the actual course will begin in February 2011.  

Enjoy your day!
