I find the best way to combat my fears is with gratitude.
This watercolor painting is based on a sketch I did during the "21 Day Challenge" earlier this year. I finally finished the illustrations for "The ABCs of Yoga for Kids", and I am taking a little break before I have to begin all of the paintings for the "Little Black Ant at Park Street" book. You can now pre-order the yoga book by clicking the button I created on the right-hand column of my blog. It will take you to the author's website.


  1. I love the beautiful and thankful look on her face. Thinking people are usually thankful people. She is just gorgeous! Great work.

  2. She is so sweet and beautiful Kate! perfect work =)

  3. This is so beautiful and charming, I love the message about being positive too! :)

  4. Love the simplicity of the picture yet it conveys soo much. I look at the illustration and wonder what the story is surrounding it.
    very well done.

  5. Hi Kathleen...wonderful post and it is so true...gratitude is very important....I always wake up and think of all the wonder in our lives and never go to bed without thinking about everything I am grateful for...

    Have a wonderful day!!! and congrats on getting the ABCs of Yoga illustrations all finished!!!


  6. I love this Kate. You are right about gratitude being a great way to conquer fear. Thank for sharing.

    During these trying times in our economy, I keep reminding myself of
    2 Timothy 1:7.

  7. Thanks Kate!! I didn't know about the facebook clause! Phyllis posted all in detail. I removed the Page. Better safe than sorry.

  8. Congrats on getting your book project finished (and for having a break! Especially during the holidays!)(This is me trying to be grateful for work, even through December. :-)

  9. Dear Kate,
    The first thing that struck me is how this sweet little girl's face is lined up with your sweet face ;) Two peas, wouldn't you say?

    Congrats on getting a huge project under your belt. You deserve a break! I'm going to order the book for myself and for my niece's children who refer to me as Auntie Lolo.
    I hope my books arrived. If not, any day now!
