Clarice sports a beautiful new dress from Marcia in West Palm Beach. Clarice says a big "thank you" to Marcia & wore this in honor of her kindergarten class's Valentine's Day party. 3 of the children told her the dress was beautiful, so Clarice was flying on Cloud 9 today.
This large-mouth bass is a character in my first children's book published in 2002. Her name is Madame Mossback. She can outsmart any fisherman. Note for experienced fishermen: one angler is "cheating" by using bait & a spinner together. He is desperate!
A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.
