This title is a natural extension of the artist's daily blog, where she chronicles details of each animal that crosses her easel. The book includes insights to her process and studio that the blog does not, it summarizes a year's worth of production into a neat package, and includes portraits that were not originally published. It is a great title for anyone interested in daily painting or defining their own artistic voice, and is especially enjoyable to those interested in animals and painting.
