Since chocolate cupcakes are one of my all time favorites (next to red velvet ones with butter cream icing) and since I've been trying to go gluten, dairy, rice and corn free and what other excuses can I come up with-- THIS is what I'd surrender to. Didn't even paint it from the real thing because then it would have been way too tempting.

I took some of Richter's feathers (see previous Illus Fri post) and made Dusty the feather duster for this weeks Illustration Friday. The topic was "Dusty." Very fun assignment! If you're interested in participating in Illustration Friday check it out.

I'm working on an idea for a children's picture book. It's based on a true story I heard while staying out at the dune shack this past fall. Those of you who've read my book, Dune Shack Summer, know I was awarded an artist-in-residency a few summers ago at a rustic dune shack on the Cape Cod National Seashore. No neighbors, electricity or running water but the shack is only 100 yards from the Atlantic and I couldn't have been happier. Anyway, this fall when I had the opportunity to be there again, I was curious where all the field mice had gone because the first summer the brazen little things had taken over. I was told that a couple of weasels had moved in. Ahhhh, the food chain, I mean the circle of life. I'll be posting some more sketches here soon.
