Fall Illustration Promotional

Now that I finished the last illustrations for the book, I have had time to create a fall promotional.  When my kids were little, we took all four of them to a pumpkin patch every fall. They picked out a pumpkin they could carry and we took them home and painted them. Sometimes they even added hats and wigs.  We had so much fun every year.  I never outgrow pumpkin painting! I hope they never do either.

Frederick was one of my favorite picture books growing up. I actually think of it quite often because I relate with Frederick so much.  While all the other mice are busy doing important jobs, Frederick stores up words and colors.  No one sees any validity to what he spends his time doing.  Even Frederick doubts the importance of his creative tasks.  Then, when winter strikes and all the food the other mice have stored is eaten and gone, the days are filled with grey and misery. Frederick then shares all the words and colors he has stored and gives something that fills their souls and hearts.
Yes, I love that story!   (previous blog)
