Hold on to something because I'm about to brag a little. If you don't like it, tough luck, mister!
From time to time, this website has featured artwork from my oldest daughter, Rebecca. Usually, it was in the context of an "I'm worried about the Kids" post, and many people commented, or emailed that I shouldn't be worried about her artwork. I assured most that I certainly was NOT worried about her artwork, and in fact there was something cooking in relation to this.
Well, now I am proud, VERY proud to be able to tell you that the first published book featuring illustrations by my daughter has now been released.
The pictures below show the cover (left), and also author Deb Wolf (of "Counting My Blessings" fame) with my daughter Rebecca holding one of the first books printed.
Deb is the wife of one of Pastors, and we have known her since Rebecca was an infant. In fact, she used to hold the infant Rebecca in church if my parents weren't at our service while my wife and I played the music for our contemporary service. When Rebecca suddenly developed the ability to draw, she drew COUNTLESS pictures for Deb...and thus the relationship was born!
This book, and story, has been a dream of Deb's for some time and my wife and I are very happy that Rebecca has been able to help her realize a portion of this dream. Plus, we are overflowing with pride! Have I mentioned that, yet?
Here are a couple of the pen and pencil illustrations that were made for this book.
