I love the rich, bright color, and you've really captured her beautiful flowing red hair! What a fun illustration!

How fun and cute! I agree with Michelle, the colors are so bright and cheerful. The red hair is awesome. Great illustration. OH Heather it would be such an honor to meet YOU!! Oh my goodness that would just make my day. I certainly understand if you can't make it. Life is happening and fast it seems. Would love to see your face and shake your hand. Think good thoughts for me okay. Take care

Haha Heather! I love the incidentals in this - they add so much to the main plot. It's like herbs and spices add depth to a cooking pot.

The whole image brings back childhood - not that I ever had red haiR!

Great illustration! Totally takes me back to when I was a little girl and would hang from the tree in our front yard just like that.

Say...did I tell you that you suck?!?!?!!!! :D hahaha JUST kidding. This has to be one of your best, yet. Seriously. I know, I've probably said that before, but really...this one takes the cake. I love how you incorporated different things. REALLY love the little mouse and mushrooms at the bottom of the tree. Adore. :)
