I've been pondering Mr.Rochester from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre for a while now, and finally after some urging on etsy I decided to go ahead and make a Mr.Rochester design in my mugs. I think he came out quite brooding and handsome, which is a hard balance to strike!

I've had lots of wonderful comments on the Anne paintings lately, and although the originals have sold I thought I would offer prints of the paintings to those of you who loved them. You can find the prints HERE.

I just finished this little Christmas painting the other day, The Bird Guardian. I don't know why, but I connect snow scenes with birds so often in my paintings. They're just such lovely spots of color during a colorless season I suppose. And we must remember to help the little birdies, when pickins are slim, so to speak, during the wintertime.
