Happy Birthday!

I know this looks like a winter scene. It's not. Or it wasn't.

One of my all time favorite books is The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield.  It's a booklover's book. Brilliantly written and full of gripping imagery. I read it over and over.

This is an illustration of Margaret Lea  towards the end of the book, during a birthday. I haven't drawn her as I really see her, except for the light brown hair and fringe. I know she must have light brown hair and a blunt fringe. But I've got her wearing a bright dress, mittens, & scarf, where I imagine her always in shades of gray and navy blue. But I love colors. So I colored her this way instead.

What book do you read again and again?
