Woah, I finished one


For the last month I've been spending a lot of my 'free' time working on some new pieces for my portfolio... a portfolio I'm hoping to showcase at the SCBWI LA conference :) I thought you might like a little sneak peek at one of them, so here it is! I like to call this one 'Groovy Grandma' because it reminds me of my Great Grandma Howels who taught me to play the piano, ride a bike and play shuffleboard. Some of my fondest memories are the times I spent with her. Ha, we used to watch Lassie and eat bon bons. Man, I miss her. She was one hip lady.
