I’ve donated this painting to the CAPS auction to raise money for Stan and Sharon Sakai. Please help them! Here’s some info about the painting, if you are interested: the illustration is from the Japanese folktale Little Peachling and was originally done for the front cover of one of my earliest children’s books, Favorite Tales from Many Lands, written by Walter Retan and published by Grossett & Dunlap in 1989.

There’s sure to be lots of great artwork donated, so please help make this a great Christmas for Stan and his family.
