This book was illustrated during the frosty months, starting in January. If the art makes you need a pair of cozy mittens RIGHT away, then I did my job. Rather fitting that today is pretty darn brisk.The boat that plays a role in the book is seen out in the bay, on the distant left in this photo I took last week, on a foggyish morning.
My pastels lent themselves to the ethereal blur between sea and sky. I'm looking forward to
teaming up with author Robin Hansen soon, at a bookstore hopefully near you. Details to come!
