Our novel...ON PURPOSE...it's here...

Finally... we are proud to announce On Purpose has arrived...
The Devil seeks revenge against an old adversary. His weapons of choice? The stolen imaginations of mortal children. This is the story of those caught in the crossfire. The novel by Angela Cartwright & Bill Mumy

 
There is several ways to experience our novel.... 


   

The DELUXE On Purpose version includes an 8 x 10 book plus all the extras... 
The color illustrations I painted of the characters in the book and Bill's  instrumental soundtrack CD.  It all arrives with a letter from us, in a hand painted tote with a map of the Faerie Realm and a bookmark too. Bill and I will sign the book and I'll personalize it if you want me to.       
Check this version out here:

The 6 x 9 version below is available on at Micro Publishing Media and
it is also available on Kindle at Amazon
           

We also created a Sights & Sounds 8 x 10 special edition book with full color pages of the artwork. Twenty-three paintings I created of the characters and you receive a download card of Bill's musical On Purpose soundtrack.  This all arrives in a hand painted tote by me...

everything from calendars to prisms to fragrance....



It's been a fine adventure and Bill and I truly hope you enjoy the ride....

hello...it's been awhile...

Something had to give... and it turned out to be my blog.  There was little time to be had once I became a 3 time grandmother... I have lived through losing both my parents, struggled to get my novel completed, created art illustrations for said novel, this and that and well... I always have time to post pictures, so Instagram became my social connection of choice.. pictures speak a thousand words...
But now I think I will try and post something a little catch up... to keep you all posted on the latest in my life...

I created some fashionable new art.wear inspired by everything around me. Every journey I take inspires the art I create.

My partner in crime Bill Mumy and I finally finished, re- worked, polished and decided it was time to let our novel ON PURPOSE out into the universe. 25 years in the making.... Set to be released in September.

I painted 23 illustrations for On Purpose and Bill composed a soundtrack for the book. There will be a deluxe version that has it all, and a Sights and Sounds book with my art and Bills music.  Keep a watchful eye on this page as it will all be available from here.  

I became an action figure! Penny and the bloop are Lost In Space action figures. How fun is that... I sold out of the signed ones I had on my site and I'm trying to purchase more I can sign and send out. I will keep you posted. 

 
I went to Salzburg again with my group of lovely folks and they experienced with me the behind the scenes locations and memories from when I made the movie, The Sound Of MusicI hope to do it again next year. Let me know if you are interested in joining us.  We always have a blast. 

I will have some of my work on exhibit at this Family Of Artists show opening this weekend at the historic Art Directors Guild 800 Gallery. I was honored they used my image of my Dad's hands for their invite. 

and... I decided to let my hair be its natural color; My Mom’s hair was pure white, and mine is pretty much the same. I am embracing my authenticity and loving the freedom it affords me.  I give a nod of my new head of hair to my Mum...who was by my side all the days of my youth...and is still by my side in my heart. I also lost my Dad this year and my heart was broken. It's the circle of life, he lived to be 95 and he had a great, fulfilled life, but it doesn't always make grieving easier for us left behind. I miss both of them everyday. But bit by bit I am putting my heart back together. Beauty, love, art and laughter helps. And smiling... lots of smiles. 
till next time, 
smile
