About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

This week I completed a second series of line drawings which will be converted into rubber stamps for Annabella Stamps in Australia.  Andrea, the owner of Annabella has been terrific to work with and I've learned a lot from her.

She asked that I do a series of cartoon drawings depicted a nostalgic/50's feel of camping in the Australian outback.  Now I've known nothing about  camping in Australia before and it was quite entertaining for both Andrea and I to communicate about different terminology.  She described wanting a caravan which I finally understood to be her term for a trailer.  She had never heard of a camping trailer before.

These are the final for drawings which are on their way to a stamp manufacturer somewhere in Australia.  

Andrea's vision is that these stamps can be used individually but also be combined 
however the artist likes to create a camping scene. 
Ultimately, camping in the outback and camping in the USA is pretty much the same.  
Who knows, I might get to try it there someday.

I am excited to receive my two, new sets of rubber stamps.

Thanks, again, Andrea for asking me to play with you!
