Froggy Friday


I was looking for something in the closet yesterday and I found this painting. I'd completely forgotten about it. Before I started working on a children's portfolio, I did a lot of semi-abstract watercolors. This seemed like a good image for springtime, so I dusted it off.

The picture's not great because it had been framed for an exhibit, and I was too lazy to take it out of the frame to photograph it. I titled it "All Four Frogs"...can you spot them?

Wow! I love it, Adrienne! You are so talented. Are you sure you can't go to the SCBWI national conference in L.A. this summer? I really think you'd catch an art director's (multiple art directors', actually) eye if you went and did a portfolio exhibit. Not to mention all the invaluable learning opportunities they provide in the form of workshops. Seriously, you should go. Your work is ready.

Thanks, everyone!

Louise - I love that idea! You've definitely got me thinking...

Ara - I saw the conference brochure and choked at the fees...
I do want to send some samples out soon, and I have a couple of PBs I'm trying to get finished to start submitting.
Thank you for the encouraging words!

Just Jules - A perfect setting for frogs :-)

Ack! Why was that in a closet? It's so cool, perfect for a fantasy book.

I had my daughter find the frogs -- she loves it, too!
