Calendars 2017 and please send me your baby images

It is that time of year where I go  through the year's paintings and select what I think are the best for the calendar. Interesting to me, is my favorites seem to be yours also. Almost all of the images I have picked are sold and in your collections.

The largest expense for calendars is always the shipping from the company, so I like to have an idea of how many I might need to order to avoid a second order (shipping cost). If you know that you will want a calendar this year, please let me know. The cost will be $24.95 and I may try first class mail instead of priority shipping for people who can't pick them up.

While I am updating this blog, I'll let you know what I am up to. First, I am working on a series of "newborn" images. If you have one of those hospital images of a little one swaddled in a hospital blanket and are willing to share to with me, I will continue to work to make these look like the correct babies. If  yours is one that I achieve a likeness while I am learning, I will gift you your baby painting, if you allow me to post it so that I can advertise to do this (ALL IF because this is definitely a work in progress)

In addition, I am working on an outline to make this blog more useful, especially to my students and I hope to launch that early in 2017
My big watercolor show deadlines start to pile up at the end of the year and into January.  I have some new experimental work that I hope to enter (and eventually share). These pieces are strong compositionally so that will add to the goal of the blog relaunch of useful information in this forum.

Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend.
