Bunnies and a video




well after being totally inspired by Kelly Rae's flight lessons....i finally dusted off the journal. i wrote some fears. i wrote some goals. one is huge and i don't know if it will ever happen and i'm not quite ready to share the big one yet....BUT....

i did start writing my story.....you see my goal has been to start writing and illustrating a children's book. i think the hardest part is just saying "i'm starting this!!!" its about a bunny that aspires to more than his life in an abandoned, run-down chicken coop and the many adventures that come after his owner leaves the door open to his tiny, cramped cage.

i've also been spending time doing these videos and adding music by larkin poe. it just makes me smile when i put the 2 together....my paint, their music.

  3. I loved watching this video. I felt like I was so close to you for that five minutes. Larkin Poe is awesome. So completely awesome. Gotta listen to some more of that.

    You would create the most awesome children's book. You go girl.
