In the good ol' summertime


How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

from The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson

Hi Patrice, my name is Alicia. I'm an illustrator from Venezuela and I have been visiting your blog from some time now. Love it!

Already wrote to Laura. This is a beautiful illustration.. It captures a moment so beautifully.. The pose... and the colors.. wonderful :-)

I'd like to crawl inside this one, Patty. I love the mood of it; a perfect match for the poem.
