    I LOVE the expression on her face! I also like the coloring of the hair and freckles 🙂

  3. This one really grabbed me. I think it’s the surprised reaction on her face combined with the good use of foreground for the hand and miniature dog.

    Wonderful. The picture really tells a story.

    The surprised look on the young witch’s face is very engaging. The beautiful soft colors in the background convey the season. The miniature dog in her hand makes me want to know more! I want to turn the page and see the next illustration!

    Thank you for sharing!

    Uh oh, someone’s been messing around and shrunk a dog! Love it!

    Hi Patricia,
    We met at the conference. I wanted to find your post and give you feed back. I too love the illustration but I have to say I’ve been on your website and love some of your other even more. For instance ‘Violet Crash’ and ‘Boring Old Book’, and the noses (don’t remember the title). They really are great! I wish you the best of luck. If your interested in giving me feedback on my piece, Wild Peace, posted here on the blog, I’d love to hear it.
