Can you tell what's going on here? There's a clue in the sign at the side of the slope.
A friend suggested I submit these little bird paintings to a childrens' book publisher. Has anyone had any experience with this recently? Or I suppose I could write and illustrate my own childrens' book using the publishing-on-demand model.
I sketched out a rough draft of one story taken from my own childhood. I had insisted my mother take me to the top of the hill behind our house, where the full moon was rising and looked so big and close, because I was certain I would be able to touch it. Of course, the closer we came to the top of the hill, the further away and smaller the moon was. I wasn't sure we just didn't get there fast enough!
