Just before the pandemic hit my friend Denise Gillen and I partnered to create a children's book, Where the Wild Sloths Roam.

Every year I bring artists to Costa Rica to immerse them in the natural flora and fauna....

How plants turned predator

Carnivorous plants fascinate as much now as when their gruesome diet was first discovered. Molecular biology is helping botanists trace the origins of their predatory ways.

Today on our blog, author Mark Jerome Walters talks to editor Stephanye Hunter about his new book FLORIDA SCRUB-JAY.

"The scrub-jay helps to change people’s perception about the scrub, and I think that’s a key part of why it’s so important to have written about the scrub-jay. You never write about just the animal. You can’t write about it without writing about where it lives."

The illustration, which appears on the book jacket, is by Mindy Lighthipe Art.

Mindy, I am thinking about closing my personal page on FB and making it into something without all the extra political feeds, etc. Can you describe how you have set up your page? Is it a business page? I see that you have a way for people to join your mailing list. I know I took a class from you, but I think that was through a different kind of referral. I appreciate it.
Love my copy of "The Art of Botanical & Birds Illustration". On page 15 there is a "little tool" for holding flower tubes. What is this called and where do I find one. ASAP

Cat Fine Art Painting, Feline, Garden, "Tango in the Tulips" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe-
12"x14" Watercolor and Colored Pencil on Paper
Painting a butterfly from a photo from
learnaboutbutterflies.com with kind permission of Adrian Hoskins.
Always ask for permission to use reference photos from internet or books!!!

First I take measurements.
On layout paper I make a little box using my measurements, I mark some key points and make divisions which helps me make the drawing a accurate as I can.
When I'm happy with my drawing I transfer it to the paper I will be using for my painting, in this case my sketchbook. For this purpose I use a homemade graphite tracing paper, using Mindy Lighthipe 's wonderful video https://youtu.be/gtpI7ZIVa4k
I retrace some lines and make any corrections, then using a kneaded eraser I make the drawing very pale, almost invisible, and clean of graphite excess.
Finally, I add color using either watercolor or colored pencils.
I saw your lesson on painting veins on leaves on Pinterest, and I love your work. Just wanted to let you know how much you inspired me. I'm not at your level, (I'm just a senior who started painting flowers after retirement.) but it was very helpful. Thanks.

Hi Mindy, Are you teaching classes in NJ? Happy Holidays!
Wishing you and yours a Wonderful Winter!!!!
Well, after nearly 2 years being open, our dining area looks exactly like we want it to! It's finally come together thanks to a wonderful wood craftsman Jon Lehman and an amazing watercolor artist, Mindy Lighthipe. We hope you love it as much as we do :)
