Maybe some of you know that after I was a first grade teacher and art teacher I was also a travel agent. It seemed that no matter what my profession was...the one that paid.... I was still deeply attached to illustration of some kind. I found this picture among some others, from my travel agent days. I had permission to create an entire wall mural of painted figures, (cotton)snow and old world villages each year for the wonderful couple I worked for in NJ. This is just a portion. The figures were created in a sketch book with pen and watercolor and the buildings were painted on butcher paper with acrylics. We saved the little people and animals from year to year and added to them each year.
