Where has the summer gone?? I've spent it knee-deep in developing a couple new projects and working on my website redesign for ChariPere.com. Updates will be happening very soon!

Talk about drawing what you love - not only are my husband and I obsessed with "Forget you", but in recent years I've formed a fondness for the pretty plumed poultry. So here's my quick take on it:
