When the Tomie dePaola Award contest was first announced. I was very excited and filled with ideas. The prompt choices were Tom Sawyer, Little Women and The Yearling.
My first go at it was this one for The Yearling. While I liked working on this, Tomie’s words kept ringing in my ear, “I want to see an image, a style, a vision that I’ve never seen before – all in glorious black and white!”
Hmmm… I will add this to my portfolio but I had another idea. So I ended up submitting the one below. This is my take. I love little furry creatures.

There she is…. the last SkADaMo sketch of 2012.
As she sugar plums herself across the page, let me say this has been a very worth while experience. You don’t have to fill the the whole page but you do have to pick up a pencil and put it to paper.
Thank you Linda for putting it out there and inviting others to join. I know you’ll have even more participants next year.
Sprinting towards the finish line of SkADaMo 2012!
I got rhythm
I got music
I got my girl

“Trees are sanctuaries.
Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.
They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”

Children have neither past nor future;
and that which seldom happens to us,
they rejoice in the present.
