Roberts Snow

Well, it's been awhile since I posted. I've been busy working on some education books. Also, I painted a snowflake for the Dana Farber Cancer Research, ROBERT'S SNOW. So fun! Grace Lin put this together several years ago when her husband Robert, contracted cancer. She asked several illustrator buddies if they wouldn't mind painting a little wooden snowflake to be auctioned off as a way to earn money for the hospital. Well, it snowballed! So many illustrators volunteered that Grace actually had to get a waiting list going. I believe Robert's Snow has contributed over $250,000. This is my 3rd or 4th snowflake. I did mine in oils this time. I wanted to try that medium and it was really fun! I named my little snowflake, WITHIN REACH. Hope you like it!
