Pencils & Crayons of September
An image-a-day. In 2010, as an artist at the Hopkins (MN) Farmers Market, I was inspired by the farmer vendors to paint pumpkin post cards. After posting a pumpkin-a-day on my Facebook page in October, I could not stop.
By February 2011, the Post Card Project had moved from postcards to large sheets of Arches 140# paper. While most are seasonal, I also introduced the LLLama Families and the small friends, a group of whimsical creatures. The geometric abstractions called nanoscapes and the small friends are now in separate websites.  
Month-by-month: January (lost left-handed gloves), February (missing socks), March (basketballs and a Shamrock), April (raindrops), May (introducing the LLLama Families), June (introducing the small friends), July (corn), August (heirloom tomatoes), September (pencils & crayons), October (pumpkins), November (leaves), and December (Hanukah candles & snowflakes.)
Will I continue with an image-a-day? Yes, but I will begin in an organized way on January 1, 2012. I have lots of projects to complete between now and then: a calendar, the small friends alphabet, the Lives of the LLLamas, and more! I am also committed to the work of the Small Friends Research Institute, which is dedicated to the discovery and documentation of new whimsical creatures.

    My husband and i ended up being abteouslly relieved Edward could finish off his preliminary research from the ideas he received from your site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply choose to be giving away things which often other people have been trying to sell. And we already know we have the writer to give thanks to for this. The specific explanations you have made, the easy website menu, the friendships your site assist to create it’s got everything terrific, and it’s helping our son and our family reckon that the concept is interesting, and that’s extraordinarily pressing. Thank you for all!
