Emory's Gift

Those of you that know me, know that I have always loved Grizzly Bears. When I first started to work on my portfolio years ago, I painted Bears! There is something so magical and beautiful about the Grizzly Bear. I have had the unique experience of seeing them in the wild when we lived out in the Canadian Rockies.
This book is a "must read" a magical story of a Grizzly that touched a boys heart forever.

Well here we are approaching September, getting the kids ready for school and I can already smell Fall in the air. I have neglected my blog, but to tell you the truth, I just needed a break from it all. As much as I love my online world and staying in touch with my creative FB friends and so on, it was time to just enjoy everything around me. The sun, the sand, family, friends and fun! Sure I've been in the studio working hard on several deadlines but the beauty of my licensing world is being able to just stop every now and then and spend time with my amazing family! They help me focus and get inspired to create and paint again!
I'm looking forward to Fall, the crisp air, the pumpkins and squash, the homemade soups, the colors of the fall trees and all the new adventures my artistic world will bring me!
It's a beautiful life and I feel so blessed
