I have had the great pleasure and honor of having one of my paintings published in a National Geographicl childrens book by Susan Magsamen entitled "The classic treasury of CHILDHOOD WONDERS". It is a beautiful book and can be purchased on Amazon or any of the large bookstores such as Barnes and Noble.
This book is full of great poems, stories, songs and activities that adults and children can share together. Pictured here is the page layout which includes my painting "Little American Beauty". Prints of this painting can be purchased on www,FineArtAmerica.com or Redbubble.com
