The “Man-Servant” of Moonbeam Farm.
Another character from Moonbeam Farm has come to life!
You may recall me introducing you to his friends this past week, beginning with a “just for fun” stab I took at painting Odessa the owl in watercolor at the urging of my blogging friend Carolyn at Nuggets of Gold, who is collaborating with Colin at A Dog’s Life on a children’s book.
Carolyn and Colin were so pleased with the painting of Odessa, they asked if it could be used as the cover photo for their first book, “The Odessa Chronicles.” I am honored to do so, and I must admit quite flattered and thrilled! I was then encouraged to paint Dewey and Jaxon, which they ended up loving too.
Then I needed to create the Man-Servant. Unlike the others, which I created on a first-try, Man-Servant took four iterations before we all decided he was the one. At first, I was a bit frustrated, but I grew to love creating this character. The Man-Servant is a human in the senior years of his life, who actually believes he runs Moonbeam Farm.
It’s been fun bringing these characters to life. I’m now going to venture into creating more to be included in the book. It’s a fun journey, and I hope you’ll enjoy it with us.
Cheers & Hugs,
