The newest children’s book that I illustrated is just about ready to head to print and should (fingers crossed) be ready for the Sequim Lavender Festival. Here is the cover of this book. It was a lot of fun to do the illustrations in this book.
I have finished the illustration drawings for the newest book by Gene Bradbury. This one will be called “Kitten Kitty Reads a Book” and will be for pretty little kids. The drawings are done and now on to the painting. The book should be out early to mid-summer.
The other book of Gene’s that I illustrated, called “When Cricket’s Snore”, was published last summer. It was a lot of fun to do and so far this one is as well.
Here is my latest painting. It is 18×24 and done with acrylic paint on canvas.
Here is my latest painting. I’m calling it “Tree Lined Road”, done with acrylics. It is 18″x24″.
I will be at the Port Townsend Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair this coming Friday and Saturday (Nov. 25-26th). It is being held at the Uptown Community Center from 10am to 5pm. My booth will be in the gymnasium downstairs. I hope you have a chance to come by and see me.
I have a few new things this year. The outdoor metal birds are now done and I also have the new counted cross-stitch kits. As always I have journals, prints, cards, and tiles as well as some originals.
The 2017 Cat Calendar is now ready. This calendar has 12 designs involving cats. There is a separate calendar page for each month of the year. This desk calendar sits in a CD-like display case holder so that all the months are handy and you just rotate the current month to the front. The original designs were created as acrylic paintings on canvas.
Here is my newest cat design for Halloween. It will be in the 2017 calendar.
I will be at the 45th Port Townsend Crafts By the Dock this weekend, September 10-11th, 10am to 6pm Sat, 10am to 5pm Sun. It takes place downtown on Madison Street/Water Street. This great arts and crafts show takes place at the same time as the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend.
It’s time for the Sequim Lavender Festival. This year is the 20th year for the event. Come check it out if you are in town. I will be at the Street Fair on Fir Street. If you come by my booth I will give you a coupon for Nourish Restaurant that gives you 5% off your entree and a free J Wyatt Art card.
Saturday, July 9th from 11am-4pm, is the Summer Celebration at the Center Valley Animal Rescue in Quilcene. I will have the artwork I created for the poster and some cards there. The artwork is going to be raffled to raise funds for the center. All the proceeds from the cards sold will given to the center as well. If you are out and about on Saturday please stop by for a tour of this great facility and check out the other activities.
