First let me say Happy Thanksgiving to all of you here in the United States!
I hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends and lots of good food.
Above is my most recent piece of an adorable little mischief maker. Raccoons are so cute and also cause so much trouble. This little guy won't tear your house apart or beg for food though.
I thought I was done for the year with my last event, a craft fair at my daughter's school, but I signed up for one last event. I swear! It's the last one for 2017! I will be exhibiting at another craft fair on December 1st at Wheelock School in Keene, NH. I'm very happy to be offering calendars, coasters and magnets with my artwork printed on them as well as the usual note cards and original artwork. If you are local please stop by and say "Hello!".

Our setup at the November 4th Craft Fair.
Collection of my "Chubby Bird" series. These are all 4" x 4" gallery wrapped canvas. These have the wider 1 1/2" sides so they can stand up on their own and be displayed on a shelf or table or also be hung from a nail in the traditional manner.
I will be enjoying the holiday season with my family and may not have time to devote to creating new art. I do have a few in progress pieces that I hope to finish. I hope you all have a splendid Christmas, Chanukkah, and New Year! Thanks for reading and supporting me in 2017.
