Crazy Eyes & Swirlish Ebook Released

I have struggled for so long to find time for my writing and illustrating, a few minutes here a few minutes there. My sister is helping more with my parents during her summer break. So, I took a used a day . . . cough. . . or more to submit my Illustrated Children’s Picture book to Amazon. I have another day or so of work to get the paperwork version available (but that will have to wait for another day, or month, or whatever.)

Back cover Blurb-

“Trouble finding friends?
Crazy Eyes, an owl, is hungry and lonely in the forest. He’s different from other owls because he cannot see.
Swirlish, an outcast owl, hears Crazy Eyes singing. Can the two become friends?”

 

While it is late in the day, I accomplished my goal today. To release Crazy Eyes & Swirlish on International Owl day, August 4th. I love owls, and amazed by them. Hope you enjoy!

Happy Owl Day!

Happy Belated Mother’s Day

Mom's childhood family canvas kimberhew.jpg

Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. This year I created a very personal canvas for my mother. We almost lost her last year and rest of the family pictured here have passed. She’s literally the last man standing.

From a growing artist perceptive: This is the first time I have ever used this much ephemera. I used a copper metallic paint. It turned out a lot darker than I wanted.

However, I love it and my mom.

Keep your loved ones close,

Rebecca’s Cat Gift Card

IMG_20170505_152319.jpgMy husband and I have become friends with a couple that are his co-workers. They are a very sweet. They have been very generous helping us attend several events. I made her a cat card as a thank you gift. They have several cats and they remind me of a cute cat couple. Their cute relationship is the inspiration for this piece.

Thankful for friends,

Kimberhew
