Painting Process

Katherine asks:When you made the book PAINTER AND UGLY, did you make all the paintings at once or did you make them one at a time?

That is a good question. I actually worked on them all together, that is, I did not just finish one and then move on to the next one. I did all the beginning stages together, then all the middles, and finally the details pretty much together.

Here are the paintings for PAINTER AND UGLY as I was working on them in my studio. You can see my sketchbooks on the shelves- and my dog's pink "Queenie Bed" on the floor (she feels quite regal when snoring on her bed).
