Yes, I did this all the time! Hmmm...sometimes I do it now when they call, but you didn't hear me say that! :) Wonderful illustration and memory!

I might have done a few times!

I really like the composition of this... I hope you'll add your colors!!

I've been meaning to tell you how much your kind comments have encouraged me. Thank you Ginger, I really appreciate it.

Although I may eventually paint this one, the illustration was done to practice my black and white drawing and line skills as prep for a new chapter book I am beginning to illustrate. The book is about two birds, but I wanted to revive this old sketch just for fun. It is from a book I did about 2 years ago and was one of the sketches the editor did not choose, so I feel it is okay for me to renovate, revise and recycle.

Yes, I did that, and now my kids do it. In all cases it is/was a flashlight under the covers and a good book. I have a hard time putting an end to it because it's good to see them so excited about books that they want to read.

I like the texture in the quilt and the over all composition is perfect, nice image!

Of course I did that! And then years later I pretended to be asleep when my husband came in the room ;)

I love this illo! My dog sleeps under the blankets with her head on the pillow. I took a picture of her the other day on the bed with the cat. Too cute!
