My Art in New Guide to Coloring Book

I was surprised to get a package recently from Fox Chapel Publishing. As you may recall from a previous post, I had completed a coloring book for Fox Chapel featuring the 50 state birds and flowers. I did not know they were going to include one of the images from that book in their other new book, New Guide to Coloring. So I was pleasantly surprised to get some samples of this book!

Here's a picture of the page that has my artwork, the chickadee you see in the upper right corner. This is a colored-in version from the 50 state birds and flowers coloring book for the state of Maine, the chickadee and the white pine cone. Yes, a cone is technically a "flower" of a pine tree, even though we don't think of them as flowers in the usual sense. :)

This is a nice book with high quality paper, print, and binding, and lots of good tips and suggestions for coloring. If you know someone who likes to color, please consider giving them this book and/or my Birds at Home 50 state birds and flowers coloring book for Christmas. They are the perfect size for stocking stuffers! And thank you for helping support an artist when doing your shopping this holiday season. :)

More Shirts For Horse Lovers

In a previous post I shared some shirts featuring my horse paintings that you can now buy on Amazon. Since then I've had some more horse shirts accepted so I wanted to share all the horse shirts I now have available on Amazon. The first one here, the Friesian horse, is my best seller so far. But it's also been on Amazon the longest so we'll see how the others do as time goes on. :)

The next two shirts are tied for second place best sellers, my western quarter horse in sepia, and my seal brown warmblood dressage horse.

And here are some color versions of the western sorrel quarter horse.

And, finally, my most recent addition, a bay Hanoverian horse.

All these shirts come in several colors and size options, and are available in men's, women's, and youth styles. With Christmas just around the corner, consider giving one of these shirts as a gift for the horse lover you know!

Gift Ideas for Artists

People are already starting to think about Christmas shopping. Artists are easy to buy presents for. We're always using up our paints, canvases, and even brushes. Yes, no matter how careful we are cleaning our brushes, they eventually just wear out or get too much dried paint in them to work well anymore. And they're expensive! So artists will always appreciate a nice set of brushes. Here's a sampling of some gift ideas for artists.

In a previous post I shared some new artwork featuring the Virginia State Bird & Flower, the red cardinal and the flowering dogwood. Well, now this image is available on all sorts of products.
