Finding Nemo in Vermont

“Superstorm” Nemo bore down on the North East last week, accompanied by some truly scary hype. In the end Connecticut and other coastal areas did get hammered, but Central Vermont got away with a mere 6 inches. During the storm I ventured out to the old farm on South Street Extension where I learned to ride and care for horses back in the 1960s. Back then, it was owned by a rather odd woman named Doris Eddy. She taught everyone everything and was a very no-nonsense sort of person.

Doris is gone now, but someone runs the old farm and lots of horses are still there.  They were all out in the pastures near the road, covered in coats and eating hay, while the snow quietly piled up on every flat surface.

    Ashley-These are really beautiful. They tell a snowy story.
    You are a very fine water colorist. I know that if you used the water color medium to illustrate your next book for children, it would be a big hit. In fact, it would be truly beautiful, amazing, and wonderful! It would be even more truly beautiful, amazing, and wonderful than your previous books which I truly love. I just know this.
