Hi, my name is Lillian but everyone just calls me Lil.
I’m an artist, organic gardener, plant junkie, photographer, writer & Stick Horse Maker.
I live in north central Illinois in a little house on the edge of the woods with my husband and two of my four grown children. In my spare time you can find me outside playing in the garden or taking lots of pictures of my flowers or the local wildlife for my blogs~ and for eight wonderful years I had my dream job of running the garden center at Blain’s Farm and Fleet...

So what’s the first thing I draw? A camel of course! I did a painting similar to this ages ago, back in high school art class. All monotone. It got lost in one of the moves so I’m thinking of making another one with the tablet.
Now I just gotta find some more time to play with it…

A long time ago and far, far away… Had a lot of time on my hands lately, so I started dragging out my art & supplies. Found this hiding in a folder. It’s sort of a doodle in oils I did in ’98. Something out of my head ~ based on all the trips we made through Tennessee and Alabama. I’m thinking I need to start a new project….
My daughter bought herself a new drawing tablet so she let me have her old one. I’m an old school artist- never used a tablet before today. It’s is going to take me long time to get used to drawing this way!
Still unpacking boxes, found some old sketches. I was really into the Lord of the Rings as a teen (books, not movie) and my art then reflected it. I was also toying with different ways to sign my name. Margaret is my middle name.
“Brooms are so outdated” Artemisia Wormhollow was quoted in her interview to the Samhain Quarterly. Artemisia age 19, has been attracting a lot of attention as she rides her bewitched stick horse back and forth to the university every evening. “Everybody I know has one [a broom]”, she continues, “But I’m the only one with a flying stick horse!”
