Since I’ve been busy with my series of larger painting and haven’t worked up any quick small painting in a few days I thought this might be a good time to share this children’s book with you. I really enjoyed the process of creating a believable mouse-person and moving him through his environment.

If you are interested in owning any of these please give me a call.

    so cool! I love the illustrations! I remember you were working on this when we toured your studio. 🙂

    Hey Lori, are these done in oils, or acrylics? If acrylics do you have any advice on how to make acrylics look like oils?

    These are all oils. I never warmed up to acrylics. I didn’t like the feel of painting with plastic. Acrylics would be more convenient so if you figure it out let me know!
