Sneak Peek of Art Work

Here’s an illustration from my upcoming children’s book: Adventures in Rainbow Valley: Faith the Flower. Enjoy! I totally did! In case you want to know who the artist is, she is one of my BEST friends (since 2002) but she wants to remain anonymous and uses the pen name Friendi S. Montes. I am so blessed God placed her in my life and she tells me that we are “partners” in this endeavor.

"Fergie the Frog"

Artist: Friendi S. Montes

    Fun! I love it! It’s kind of like Monet in animation! It’s so fun to watch your dream come true.

      WOW! I think she will love the Monet comparison. I have begged and pleaded with her to let me put her to the front but she is in the medical field and she said she just wants to do this leisurely so I respect that. Yes, my dreams are finally coming true.

        Throughout the great scheme of thigns you\’ll secure an A+ for effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually lost me ended up being on your facts. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more accurate right here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you what did give good results. The authoring is certainly really convincing and that is most likely why I am taking an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can notice the jumps in reason you come up with, I am not sure of exactly how you seem to unite your ideas which in turn make the actual conclusion. For the moment I will, no doubt yield to your position however wish in the future you actually connect your dots much better.

    Congratulations on your upcoming book publication. That so cool that you were able to have your friend illustrate it for you. These look good! It’s so important to have an illustrator who captures the spirit of the book.

    I like the softness of the artwork – very alluring. Congratulations to both of you.
