Day 12 ~ preparation

Today I spent some time cleaning my studio and deciding what to start on next. I found an old plein air painting that I never varnished, so I put a quick coat on it.

Then I decided to pull out an old unfinished painting that I have struggled with for over a year. I set it up on the easel and will delve into finishing it tomorrow… at least I’m hoping to finish it tomorrow. 🙂

I want to share my daughter’s postcards with you. She is selling them for a dollar a piece. Let me know in a comment if you’d like to purchase some and then I will let her know.


Some photos from the book signing…

It was a wonderful party. I forgot my camera, so I grabbed my daughter’s phone. Wish I had taken more pics, but spent a lot of time visiting with people I hadn’t seen for ages.

Lots of glass penguins
Sarah signing…

Two sweet friends showed up in kimonos, because Punty the penguin travels to Japan on his way to Antartica and one of the illustrations inside is of Japanese kimonos.

I wish I had more to share. There were postcards and stickers, maps and cookies from Sarah’s recipe in the book.

A fun time was had by all.

Again, if you are interested in this fascinating book, there are some left. You can contact Sarah at
