A reflection of "Man's Works and Nature" during the Pandemic.
Custom Archival framing; Glass size 30" x 37"; $1650.00
I'm working on illustrating and publishing two new books in 2020. This is a peek at recently completed watercolor illustrations from the book "Magical Meadow." The book walks through one magical morning in a meadow. The critters we meet inspire and nurture us. The book is written as a beautiful poem.
"Red wants to play, but his friends are too busy getting ready for something called “winter.” Confused, Red takes a nap. He wakes to find his world covered in fluffy white flakes. His friends are ready for fun, but how will Red ever get used to all these changes?"
A beautiful story about friendship, sharing, and gardening!
You may purchase it in the Corn Crib Studio Store online by itself, or with the companion activity book featured below.
The Sunflower Squirrel WINS award for 2019!
Spring is finally here and Squirrel is excited about the year ahead. She has trees to scamper up and down, tasty nuts to gather, and friends to visit. The Sunflower Squirrel picture book is a fun story of friendship, teamwork, generosity, and determination. It is designed to inspire children to learn more about the codependent relationship between plants and wild animals. A beautifully illustrated book, it is a perfect addition to school classrooms, libraries, nature centers, or home collections for children who enjoy a story book with a rewarding finish.
And now, you can continue the fun with Squirrel and her friends Blue Jay, Mouse, and Cardinal with this companion activity book. The Sunflower Squirrel Coloring and Activity Book is packed full of word search puzzles, crosswords, drawings to color, word scrambles, and secret messages to decode. Fun for kids of all ages.
