“Color is the fruit of life.”
I just put the finishing touches on my latest illustration and I’m really excited to post it! This one was done using the ink blocking technique I tried on my last illustration (see here), although I used colored pencils for the outlines this time. I love her elegant, yet soft look…and I so want her dress!

Josephine hasn’t been feeling exactly chipper of late…in fact, melancholy might be a better description of her mood. But even Josephine knows that moods come and go. And so she’s embracing this one and learning to dance with it, too.

A week visiting my parents in their little New Hampshire lake-side cottage is not complete without a trip to a pick-your-own fruit farm. This year we made time to pick blueberries (and a pint of raspberries) just a stone’s throw from where my parents reside.
The bushes were full of ripe and ripening berries.
We first picked the Blueray variety…
Then moved on to the Patriots since they were bigger and sweeter.
With 5 of us Mirandas in the field (my husband is an honorary Miranda), we filled 4 big buckets…
And had time to pick some raspberries, too!
Where will all these berries go? One pint went to the neighbors, but we’ll gobble up the rest in fruit salads, pies and jams.
