This project started a year ago when I was playing alphabetical flash cards with my son. I realized that he was learning about random animals he’d most likely never see. I can’t remember the last time I’d seen a Unicorn in Tucson! So I decided to create a set of Flash Cards with purely Southwest Animals.

I painted each animal using acrylics and blogged my progress. In April had the opportunity to show my originals at the prestigious Madaras Gallery. (Thanks Diana!)

Since then I have been balancing my time between graphic design projects, being a Mom and finishing this project!

I can’t think of better way of ending 2012 then to share the finished Desert Dwellers Flash Cards set will all of the friends that helped me along the way.

I will be posting sneak peeks of the set leading up to December! Please subscribe to my blog to see them.
