The holidays are over now. But I'll continue to plug in the Christmas lights every morning until the tree grows brittle and threatens to become a fire hazard. Likewise, I'm only just now finishing up my holiday paintings in the ole' art journal. Here, the Dear, Departed Cap'n finds plenty of time to dawdle away a Christmas morning playing with the newest thing in electric trains. Another year steams into the fog, and a fresh one sails in. Happy New Year, me hearties!

Over the holidays I got behind in my posting because I was working on a couple of family portraits. here's one of a sweet family newly relocated from California to Texas. They love camping and the kids enjoy collecting wood for the fire and playing with lanterns and headlamps.

Now that I'm over stuffing myself with fabulous tofu turkey and iterations of cauliflower, I'm having a sale in my Etsy shop! Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Football Sunday, you name it. It's on through Tuesday. Greeting card sets that normally include 3 cards and envelopes will also include an extra. By the way, you can mix and match your set. Just give me instructions when you order. Here's a new one, just added today.

Here's a set of Christmas and winter illustrations that can be downloaded and used for creating all sorts of holiday stuff, from invitations to emails to web pages. It's no surprise that lots of silly animals are included and a few retro elements as well. All are on transparent backgrounds. They're new in my Creative Market store.

In a coastal town on a brisk fall day, there may be a storm coming, or perhaps just a ship or two. Either way, a lady and her young cat will go about their business. Further ruminations on yesterday's sketchbook painting. This print is now available in my shop.

This one got a little complicated and a bit of a muddle, but here it is, warts and all. I really must try to keep these simpler! Barely a week ago the temperature in Los Angeles was over 100. But now, suddenly, Autumn has come, bless'er.
