Swamp Sunset by Greg Newbold- 8" x 16" acrylic
I just got an email today from a mother telling me how much her children loved Spring Song, the book that includes this image. It's really nice to hear from readers and parents of readers since, for me at least, I don't often get that kind of feedback. In part it read:
My children and I enjoyed Spring Song today and I wanted you to know how much we enjoyed your illustrations. I've seen your work before and should have recognized it...Thank you for sharing such lovely work.This reaction is one of the main reasons why I enjoy making a book so much. In recent weeks, I have pulled out and revised some manuscripts that I have written and am gearing up to get another book in the pipeline. Finding a publisher is the hard part, so wish me luck.
