Once Upon A Time
Color Comp  Painting
Mixed Media

Every book has a few pages I dread painting----usually because I'm not completely thrilled with the sketch, but can't think of anything better.  This was one of those paintings.  

As I set to work on it though, everything worked better than I ever expected, and now it's one of my favorite paintings in the book.  Julius wrote a lovely opening line that we were able to feature opposite the mother, and I just love the result.  I think it's the best opening spread of any of my books.
