I have opened an Etsy store. Right now there are four paintings available but I will be adding more. I can also take commissions.

All the best with the Etsy shop. The drawings with copic markers are wonderful, love the hen. I did read the Library of Lost and Found a while back.

Thank you. The daily drawings are fun and frustrating. I enjoyed the Library of Lost and Found.

Jellyfish can be so pretty, I look forward to seeing the finished painting.

Wishing you a great reading week

Thank you. I worked on the jellyfish again today. They are posing a challenge but I'm enjoying myself.

Our Texas Master Naturalist group had a presentation on jellyfish recently, and then we saw a jellyfish room at the aquarium when I was in Paris. They are ancient, like some trees, and could be considered to never die (in a sense).

Mananaland. I'm very interested in all things Hispanic.

Hope your new shop is getting lots of attention.

My life seems to be full of jellyfish right now. There is a scene in Turtle Under Ice where a boy reads about jellyfish to one of the two main characters while they ride a bus. It's early days for the Etsy store. I will need to market myself more.

I see some intriguing titles! Great drawings, too.

Enjoy! Here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

Oh! Egg Drop Dead is on my tbr. And I've just gone and placed a hold on Ghost-Spider thanks to your post!

Pussreboots

Would you believe I misplaced my copy of Ghost-Spider? I'm so annoyed at myself. Egg Drop Dead was really good.

I've been rereading the Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries since I read them years ago. Right now I'm reading other books that have been on TBR mountain for a while. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Pussreboots

I have to admit that I DNFed Whose Body? I found the mystery nonsensical and I wanted to punch Lord Peter Wimsey in the face several times per page. It wasn't a good combo.

Laura @ Library of Clean Reads

Your paintings are lovely. A few of your books caught my eye, in particular In West Mills.

Pussreboots

I will get to In West Mills in due time.
