I lovethe depiction of the grass. And, the dog looks a little scary – I like how Tom’s posture seems to indicate that he knows that and is wary!
It is an action shot – can you hear the dog barking? I love this illustration!
Yes, as Tom tentatively stretches out his finger, the dog barks wildly…you are right, there is suspense here.
I feel like Tom is about to run. As a child I did not understand dogs and I feared them – dogs did bite me and chased me and all that. Now, I understand dogs better and I understand that they do let us know what is on their minds’ – sometimes what is on their minds’ is a big old bite and get out of here message! But, thankfully, what is mostly on dogs’ minds is love and fun and play! I am a big dog fan! However like you, I think Tom needs to be alert – this dog isn’t planning to have fun with him!
Another great illustration. I imagine you living in a huge mansion where every room is a library full of illustrated books… Which volume will be the next one lucky enough to be pulled down from the overflowing shelves?
Thank you! I do live in a huge mansion, but I don’t have enough books so it is a rather small house after all! I have a tiny collection of books – love them and try to mix it up! It pleases me no end that someone (you) likes seeing my collection. Today I thought about – gulp – stopping posting. I just felt tired of it all – I think there is a wall about 3 months in. Thanks for so much support! I told you I would be lost without you – I do tell the truth!
