My art fairs have been doing very well this summer, despite all the economic woes, and most of it has been due to my new book, What’s in the Woods? A Michigan Treasure Hunt, which is selling like hotcakes. I haven’t even had time to send it out to reviewers or notify bookstores about it, being a one-woman show here.
Starting in May and going through September, I will be working on the third and last poster in my Lake Effects posters. I don’t know whether I should say where this window is quite yet, but it is probably all right to let on that it’s in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, looking south, which lends a slightly different perspective to the first two posters, which were painted from a west-facing window.
After finishing three Beaver Island commissions before Christmas as well as a three-week trip to Florida, I’m busy finishing a sequel to What’s On the Beach, another easy intro book to Great Lakes nature for kids (and clueless adults) called What’s In the Woods. I’ve finished most of the art and am now writing and doing layouts. With luck and a little less procrastination, I’ll have it ready by June.
