Fran, I just noticed your comment about the whimsical armadillos being good for a children's book. There actually is a sort of "story" behind that drawing that makes it special for me. Last summer my husband (who passed away this April) was in the hospital due to complications from cancer, and I was there with him, spending the time drawing different whimsical animals with the same sort of jungle-like backgrounds. I ran out of ideas and asked him what animals I should draw next. He said, "Armadillos" so I "googled" armadillos to see exactly what they looked like and then drew them. Later I asked him what made him choose armadillos and he said "I was just going to go in alphabetical order every time you asked me, and armadillo starts with A!"
Hi Fran. Just been looking through your portfolio, you have some beautiful pieces of work and all your paintings feel so alive. You seem to have that special talent that captures the moment and translates it onto canvas..
