Final art for pages 44/45 of "Stand Tall, Abe Lincoln" by Judith St. George, illus.d by me and publ.d by Phylomel/Penguin&Putman. The sky grows dark over the woods into which young Abe is walking as he waves goodby to his step-mom Sarah. By coloring the sky this way I was trying to intimate the difficult future which the senior Abe would face. Water color, gouache, 2006.
