When I am not drawing commissioned PenPets portraits or carving woodblocks, I like to draw wild animals and farm animals. I saw most of these wild animas right out of my bedroom window in Brooksville, Maine. (That's where the bird feeders were!) Many of the farm animals lived at Overlook Farm in Rutland, Massachusetts. It's the Learning and Livestock Center for Heifer International where I got my farm fix as a volunteer when I lived in Princeton, Massachusetts. I met some of the farm animals at the Blue Hill and Common Ground Fairs, and at Horsepower Farm in Maine.
