We went to visit several local elementary schools for Literacy week in March! Here are some pictures from Lincolnway Elementary School where we taught children how to "Write and Illustrate their own Children's Book." Hattie, dressed up as the main character in my book, is always a big hit!!!
I was humbled and honored to receive the award "Best In Show" from the York Art Association. This was a painting of my granddaughter and our puppy, two things that I hold dear to my heart. I am excited to keep painting portraits of people's children and pets!
