paddled a raft, his favorite craft,
with a hearty laugh at the cooling draft
while his friend Danny Deer, always sincere
and full of good cheer, steered from the rear
sipping root beer.

Round 2: Castle LeFini

Sissy and Garryd at Castle LeFini
I sent off Aya's sketchbook to Mike, because I was having surgery and not sure how I would be afterwards.  I had the surgery and am recovering, and wanted to paint, so I painted in one of the old returned Moles from 2011-2012 (Was that Round 2?).  This is an illo for another kids' book I am working on, faber Castelle Pitt Pigment pen and watercolor.  If interested,you can read the chapter here, it is fairly short (3 pages typed).  I gave it the tag children's picture book, but it probably will be a novel if finish it.
