They partied for days, weeks, months and years;

the sound of their laughter filled everyone’s ears.

They partied ‘til the moon came up in the sky

and then all creatures kissed Frankie goodbye.

I painted this with watercolors, finishing it (after many days of work), on 8/21/14 and today, I added the moon in Photoshop.   It is for the book I am working on for my grandson hopefully for his birthday, otherwise for Christmas.  He will be four years old on his birthday, and has just started school.


I posted it before, but I think this is the finished version (I hope).

Keith with Potato Chips

Keith with Potato Chips
I made this on my new Surface Pro in Artrage

Then I printed it, and painted over almost the entire thing with acrylics

The second one I am including in Ballookey's pocket.

I am still working on two other pieces.  I will maybe try scanning them later today.

I am looking at these two paintings and I see things I like in the original and may do more work on the acrylic.  Oops, thought I was finished.
