a new year

Howdy all,

I hope everyone had a great holiday! Mine was nice and relaxing. I stayed at my new parents' house, which is gorgeous. While there I got some painting done for my book Seabiscuit (I'll show a few finishes soon) and I also took some photographs. Go to www.meghan-mccarthy.com/house1.html - to see the new series.

So I've been thinking about what I'd like to improve upon, change, etc., for the new year. I think for the most part I'm pretty happy with the way my book career has been going. I can't say that I'd do anything differently thus far. I would like to force myself (yes, FORCE is the only way it's gonna happen) to do a few school visits... but I have done a lot of readings/signings lately so I think I've put in some effort.

Some things I'd like to do are get more organized (I am organized but I slack off a lot) so I suppose I should say STAY organized... and find the time to paint more.

Below are two paintings that I'd like to create a series on -- food items and toilets. (I'm serious).






Lastly, if you are brave enough to watch Underdog in its entirety then you may see one or two (can't find the second as of yet) of my paintings hanging on one of the walls. It's fun... like playing Where's Waldo! (only you have to endure a bad move instead of flipping through a colorful book).
