Shasta Angels greeting card by Linda M Smith

On sale for $5 if you’re traveling through the Mount Shasta, California area.  It’s along the I-5 corridor.  Tourists and a couple of local stores buy these from me!  Made on paper with Prismacolor and graphite pencils.  S&H extra for non-locals!


Canadian Parliament 

I am fascinated by Canada, mainly because of its hot new PM, Justin Trudeau, man in the pink suit at the far lower right corner.  To his left stands Stephen Harper, the former PM of 10 years standing.  I put in a Moose as a comical element and also to represent the Native Canadian population, who have serious problems of their own, mostly associated with poverty.  They have cultures and stories mostly unknown to me and probably somewhat unfamiliar to the Canucks (those Canadians who speak French and English and who appear to be of European descent).

I’m still mastering things like proportion and accuracy.  But Harper and Trudeau are both fairly accurate here.  Trudeau is taller than he appears here.
