Nancy FoulkeWhy did you choose to submit this art?
For quite a while now, I have been experimenting with night skies and clouds with moonlight shining on the landscape. I find it a challenge to paint with the duller colors of the dark yet still have clarity and light.
What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
It means you're able to share with other artists and writers the good and the trials. Just to be with like-minded people is priceless.
What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
Ah, there are so many: Charlotte's Web, although not a real picture book, had wonderful pictures along with a touching story; The Pokey Little Puppy was read to me many nights; Beatrix Potter's Tom Kitten, Peter Rabbit, and I guess my very favorite of hers, The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle. I also loved a funny little book called The Stories the Three Bears Told, illustrated by John Howard Jewett.
