I made it a goal to post on "The Shoe" with more frequency but deliberately chose not to post some of my recent commission work. Many of these new pieces are gifts for friends and former students. I didn't want to ruin the surprise for my customers should someone accidentally see their Christmas gift ahead of time.
This commission piece is for a very young child and was ordered by my son-in-law's sister. I doubt the child will discover this post but I hope her mother will be pleased. My challenge for Aven's watercolor was to create a folk art piece inspired by the owner's piggy bank. Aven's room is decorated in matching colors and designs.
I am nearly finished with my 2010, inked bookplate. Stay tuned to see this year's design.
