Illustration Friday: SNOW!

Hooray for snow! After you fall off the sled, it's so great to just lie there in a pile, snow slowly sinking into your clothes, watching and listening to the snow...

(Maybe I gotta stop working right at the deadline!!! I got this IF post done in time, but wish I had more time to correct some things -- the girl's face needs some work, and the snow scene needs a bit of adjusting so it really looks like the boy's head is in the snow and there's an up-close pile.)

Tomie dePaola Illustration Competition

Here is my entry into the SCBWI Tomie dePaola illustration competition, illustrating a passage from the book, The Yearling, a beautiful and sad story written in the 1930s about a boy and a deer in rural Florida. 

I've been wanting to submit to this competition for a while, and I'm excited to have finished the piece!
