In January of 2011, I had the incredible opportunity to travel to 7 European cities in 3 weeks with my aunt who plays bassoon and contrabassoon for the LA Philharmonic. Being on tour with the orchestra was a remarkable experience and I'm so grateful to have had the chance to go!
The first stop on the tour was Lisbon, Portugal. The tiled roofs and sunbathed buildings of this seaside city are unforgettably beautiful. I hope to return some day, but in the mean time, I loved remembering it's magic while working on this piece.

Events celebrating Children's Book Week are scheduled around the country for May 7 through May 13
this year. Charlesbridge Publishing is putting together a full few days of talks from authors and illustrators along with an exhibit of original art from their books! You can view watercolors from Monet Paints a Day
(my book!) and paintings, collages, and drawings from a batch of talented artists in the storefront of the Charlesbridge offices in Watertown, Massachusetts during the week of events. Wish I could be there, should be a fantastic week!
