We had a delicious lunch. Alice's daughter and son-in-law made us THREE different kinds of salad. I brought the cookies. We shared the artwork that we've been working on, Andy's watercolors for magazine covers and sketchbook, Alice's new book, Murry in the City, and my doodlings from the iPad and Haunted Histories.
Alice and Martin Provensen illustrated many of the Little Golden Books, like Color Kittens. They won the Caldecott medal for children's book illustration for their book "The Glorious Flight" After Martin passed away Alice continued to illustrate books.
Wonderful shapes and colors, don't you think? Her art is so alive.
It was a treasure garden of delights.
Here's a pict of Alice and Yours Truly from when we judged an art contest a couple of years ago.
When I am ninety-four-years-old I hope that I am still painting and making toys.
Did I say good day? I meant most excellent day.
“I believe in the hands that work, in the brains that think, and in the hearts that love…I believe in sunshine, fresh air, friendship, calm sleep, beautiful thoughts.”
