"Magical Meadow" by Dr. Jennifer Schmidt

I'm working on illustrating and publishing two new books in 2020.  This is a peek at  recently completed watercolor illustrations from the book "Magical Meadow." The book walks through one magical morning in a meadow. The critters we meet inspire and nurture us. The book is written as a beautiful poem.

The Sunflower Squirrel ACTIVITY Book

Spring is finally here and Squirrel is excited about the year ahead. She has trees to scamper up and down, tasty nuts to gather, and friends to visit.  The Sunflower Squirrel picture book is a fun story of friendship, teamwork, generosity, and determination. It is designed to inspire children to learn more about the codependent relationship between plants and wild animals. A beautifully illustrated book, it is a perfect addition to school classrooms, libraries, nature centers, or home collections for children who enjoy a story book with a rewarding finish.

And now, you can continue the fun with Squirrel and her friends Blue Jay, Mouse, and Cardinal with this companion activity book. The Sunflower Squirrel Coloring and Activity Book is packed full of word search puzzles, crosswords, drawings to color, word scrambles, and secret messages to decode. Fun for kids of all ages.

Very large new works by Christina Allen.  Fifty years ago I started in oil painting.  I discovered watercolors almost 40 years ago.  Now, I am looking back to making oils with a new fresh style.  What fun!
