seagulls dancing in the rain, Judy Blume tribute, and windows for IF

The prompt for Illustration Friday this week is window. I decided to do a quick painting today of the view outside my window of seagulls dancing in the rain (flying, actually, but the soaring and swooping looked like dancing):

I also sketched an image which I might turn into a painting for the ABFE auction at BEA. This year they're honoring Judy Blume. I thought it would be fun to paint a girl in a window seat enjoying Judy's books. Here's the sketch (note-this is a cell phone picture and not a good scan):

The weather outside the window is wintery in the sketch. Thinking about making it rainy instead.


  1. The first image is my mental picture of self, the second closer to the actual one. Always enjoy your art.

    1. Thanks, Mirka! I think I'm both. Sometimes I look out the window at the seagulls and sometimes I read stories about them. ;)
