Mr. Jingle 7 in process

Today this little guy and I had a long ‘sit down’ talk. (NOT in a tree!) I needed some hint from him of where he was headed on his adventure so that I wouldn’t paint myself out on a limb trying to keep up with him! We came to some understanding, and I began to sketch ahead since there were some architectural feats to overcome. I also needed to rework the text to stay true to his story. Hopefully, in the long run, this will help, but for today, it took a huge amount of time and watercolors just had to stop their flow and wait til tomorrow to fall into the mix. 


When I reach the branch

At my bedroom door

My pocket starts jingling

More and more!

    Ann, you are endlessly talented. I love your story, the illustrations, and the magic that emerges in every word!

    Thanks, Mary, I’m slow to ‘get’ my wordpress site, so I just saw your message! Thanks for all your support on this project! I need affirmation like this to keep going. AND any ‘critical feedback’ is welcome, too!
