Artwork for the Album "Ground Swell"

Here are the finished paintings for my friend David Mauk's new album "Ground Swell"
They were basically my renditions of the Edward Hopper paintings"Ground Swell" and "Cape Cod Evening". A little useless fact: "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" was a painting based on Hopper's "Nighthawks". Mine aren't quite that kitschy but I do hope they serve their purpose well! (The dog is actually Dave's pup, Petey.)

T'is the Season!

I truly have been a busy little elf! I signed up to host an Underwriters Laboratory House Party this weekend. I thought it would be such a perfect match since I tend to go a little overboard with my holiday displays. I didn't take into consideration how tiring getting the house in order (and decorated early)would be. In addition to that, I have my show that I participate in every year quickly approaching so I am frantically trying to get all my projects completed. I also had 2 illustrations to complete recently. A friend of mine is a very talented musician who is getting ready to release his second CD. The music for the CD is completely based on many of Dave's favorite Edward Hopper paintings. I was honored to be his go-to-gal for the artwork. They are my rendition of of Hopper paintings. I can't wait to see his final package design and to hear the album in its entirety. He had sent me a few of the tracks and they are incredible. I'll have to review it when I get a copy :o) I think we are finally settled from the move now we just need to get through the holidays! Hopefully, I'll be able to get back into the groove of blogging on a regular basis. If I don't manage another post before next Thursday, Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
(and while we're being thankful, Thank You all for following my blog and being my cyber friends!)
